BACONTON, GA (WALB) -

More south Georgia firefighters join a statewide effort to help burn victims.  The Baconton Volunteer Fire Department is now accepting cans for the Georgia Burn Foundation which helps provide treatment for injured firefighters and other burn victims.     

Donors can drop cans into a large trailer outside the station.  Firefighters say it's an easy way to help others.     

"They not only help with the financial part, but also have counselors available.  They have people on staff that have actually been burned and they can talk to the people and tell them what to expect and what to look for," said Baconton Volunteer Fire Chief David Forrester.     

Chief Forrester says the trailer will be taken to a recycling center once it's filled.  He hopes to raise up to a thousand dollars for the burn foundation.
