DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) —To celebrate International Firefighter Day, Academy Sports in Dothan donated $2,000 to the Dothan Fire Department to help keep up their Health and Wellness Department.

The store gave the department two gift cards and the chiefs will speak with health and wellness to find out what their team needs to keep up their strength and coordination.

“So what this affords us to do is to both poll, we just finished our fit to fight race Saturday,” Dothan EMS Chief Sean Gibson said. “So the next step will be to discuss with our departments and our committee leaders on what are the needs both at the station and at our fitness center.”

Chief Gibson described the feeling like it’s Christmas morning.
