ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Thousands of kids from across South Georgia were dancing and singing in the Albany Civic Center Wednesday morning.  

Students from pre-school through the third grade had fire prevention lessons at the 22nd Annual Albany Fire Department Fire Safety Show.  

Albany firefighters dressed as clowns and superheroes and put on skits to make the message fun.

"Hopefully, regardless of where they are, they can take the message back and understand that when their parents tell them they shouldn't play with fire, they shouldn't play with matches, they shouldn't play with lighters. Smoke detectors should be in the house, they understand that message from their parents," said Chief Ron Rowe with the Albany Fire Department.

The Albany Fire Department also presented a check for $6,000 to the Georgia Burn Foundation that firefighters raised to help burned children on Wednesday.
