Last week, the Brewton Fire Department received a $10,000 grant from the Georgia-Pacific Bucket Brigade program.

Presenting the check to Chief Jeff Salter and Mayor Yank Lovelace was Tommy Blaylock, vice president and general manager of the Brewton mill.

“We are proud to support such a worthy cause,” said Blaylock.“Firefighters and emergency responders put themselves at risk every day to save lives and property. It is critical they have the right protective gear to get the job done safely,” he added.

The fire department used the donation to purchase five sets of turnout gear for firefighters.
