"For that one week, they're all together and they feel real normal," said John Wisenbaker, Captain with the Valdosta Fire Department. "Basically, it's like a big pep rally all week long for 'em. It's a big, fun time; it's pretty fun to watch." 
 
The firefighters will be out at various location throughout Valdosta from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday and Friday and 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday.

Below are the locations where the fire fighters will be stationed:
