“We do it so the community can get to know their law enforcement and fire professions,” said Gary Fuller. “Their jobs are stressful and this is an outlet for them.”
Fuller said the game promises to be fun and give the public a chance to interact with public safety workers.
The game will pit county firemen and deputies against city firemen and policemen. Doors will open at Gordon Central High School at 4:30 and tip-off is at 6 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. The Life Flight helicopter, firetrucks, and police cars will be there for the public.
Proceeds from the concessions will go the Sheriff’s Auxillary and benefit the Winner’s Club of Calhoun.
Half-time show will be the cheer leading squad from the DevilRays.
“The city won last year, so the county is out for vengeance,” said Gary Fuller, on of the organizers of the event.
