ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A Southwest Georgia restoration company donated money to help the Albany Fire Department teach fire safety to children.

GRAP, or Georgia Restoration and Protection, donated $5,000 to the Albany Fire Department's Children Fire Safety Education Program.  

GRAP recently raised the money through a Charity Golf Tournament.

"Children now-a-days mean so much to us. As all of us in our company have small children and everything. So we wanted to kind of give back to the community. Especially for first responders who help our community," explained GRAP Vice President Brian Bradshaw.

The donation will be used to buy an inflatable room firefighters will take for fire prevention lessons for kids.
