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
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.
