LEE CO., GA (WALB) -

Lee County Public Safety got an early Christmas present from the city of Tifton. 

Fire Station #2 on Highway 19 now has a new tribute out front. 

The fire truck and ambulance donated by the city of Tifton will be permanent decorations. 

The vehicles will be open 24/7 so kids can grab a picture sitting in the driver's seat. 

Lee County officials say the gift shows how strong the bond is between the two cities and firefighters. 

"It shows the brotherhood between firemen, police and ambulances because when I went to them, the had this truck for sale. And the fire chief for the city of Tifton called the mayor and I'm sure he called the commissioners up there and they decided this was for dedication and to give it to them," said Michael Sistrunk, Co-County Manager. 

The trucks officially opened today, and the fire station is asking visitors to stop by anytime and say hello.
