ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Two South Georgia fire departments are collecting donations for the Georgia Firefighter Burn Foundation.

The Albany Fire Department has been partnering with Georgia Firefighter Burn Foundation for the past 20 years.

Both the Albany Fire Department and Valdosta Fire Department have both teamed up to help burn victims by collecting donations.

The departments are exchanging 'give burns the boot' wristbands with each donation.

There's a friendly competition to see who can collect the most donations.

"We decided that the wristband would be incentive to get the community involved." said interim Fire Chief Sebon Burns. "When you walk around in our community with this bracelet on, people know that you donated to a worthy cause."

Albany Fire Department will be joining the Lifelink Organ Donors, Saturday afternoon for the community BBQ from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Sam's parking lot.
