Firefighters give "burn the boot"

Posted: Updated:

Firefighters and volunteers were out at the new east Albany Walmart raising money for a life saving cause.

It's called the "Give Burn the Boot" campaign, and AFD firefighters were collecting donations from shoppers.

It raises money for burn victims. The funds will go towards the Georgia Firefighters Burn Foundation and fire safety education.

AFD is also competing with the Oconee Fire Department to see who can raise the most money.

"I really enjoyed the competition, because no matter what they do, we increase our limits and this competition will springboard us to collect more money next year," said Assistant Fire Chief, Seabon Burns.   

Between this event and their last one earlier this month, firefighters have raised roughly $4,000.
