ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Some old emergency equipment will have a new life teaching first responders of the future.

 The Albany Police Department donated a restored police cruiser and Dougherty County EMS gave a fixed-up ambulance to Albany Technical College.

They'll be used for hands-on instruction for the Law Enforcement Technology and Paramedic Technology programs.

The Dawson Fire Department also donated a 1947 Mack fire truck that will be the showpiece beside the Charles B. Gillespie Center for Emergency Responders.

"She has stood guard in Dawson for over 60 years, and I'm proud to see her bright and red and shiny again," said Rusty Hunter of the Dawson Fire Department. "I hope the school takes care of her for the next 60 years like she did the city of Dawson."

The event is part of Albany Technical College's 50th anniversary celebration.
