This was an idea that the team had to show appreciation to the firefighters for all the tremendous work they do to keep our community safe.

The team first met a few weeks earlier to create the “Thank You” cards, and then planned the gift baskets. Then the team met in the parking lot at Lost Mountain Park and packaged and assembled baskets full of fruit, snacks, crackers, granola bars, bottled water, the handmade cards, and a West Cobb Extreme softball with all the player’s signatures.

The team first went to Firehouse #18 and then to Firehouse #13. Both firehouses were surprised and the fireteams were very thankful for the time, effort, and consideration that the team put forth in the delivery. The players were able to ask questions of the firehouse team, see the fire engines, and at Firehouse #13, the team was given a demonstration of the giant ladder truck.

A great day and an excellent way to recognize those who put their lives on the line to keep us safe.

The firefighters from the two stations might be seen around the softball fields at Lost Mountain park! The team invited them to watch practices, and even challenged the firehouse team members to a friendly scrimmage! When you see them, please thank them for all they do!
