Fire Fighter hopes Back the Red will catch on

TIFTON, GA (WALB) -

 You may have heard of the Back the Blue movement now there's Back the Red. 

 A Tifton Firefighter started the campaign to recognize all firefighters.

 He's hoping it will catch on across Georgia.  

Back the Red T-Shirts and decals will be sold to help out smaller fire departments start smoke detector programs.

It's also a way to say thank you to firefighters. 

"It means a lot to us if we saw our t-shirts or our tags or decals on other peoples vehicles. It just let us know that the community is backing us and we can actually see that," Captain Tim Cooper said.

They plan to have the Back the Red products on sale next week.
