A gift by an anonymous donor means Atlanta firefighters will get new washers, dryers and furnishings. The $150,000 given to the Atlanta Fire Rescue Foundation’s Fire Station Fund will provide four Atlanta Fire Rescue Stations in Buckhead and Southwest Atlanta the ability to make improvements and upgrades to the interiors of their stations. “Our programs like the Fire Station Fund allow community partners to reinvest in their neighborhoods in the name of public safety,” AFRF executive director Shirley Anne Smith said. “This donation to the fund is the largest ever – including the first time a Southwest Atlanta fire rescue station is benefitting – and for that, we are particularly appreciative and proud.” mdjonline.com
