TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) -- For the third year, Bradfordville volunteer firefighters and Super Lube teamed up and got out into the community to raise funds and awareness for their department.

 Chief Karl Hook says he's been volunteering with the department for seventeen years. He says they are made up of 22 volunteers who are dispatched to about 800 calls a year in the Leon County area.    

Saturday, they were giving away free hot dogs. Kids even got a chance to sit right behind the wheel of a fire truck.

Hook says the firemen volunteer because they just want to help people in the community.

“The initial reason why I joined was I was traveling out on north meridian road and saw a house on fire and it took a long time for the fire department to get there and so I looked at the reasons… what can we do to make the response times faster,” said Hook.

For every car serviced, Chief Hook says Super Lube donates $3 to their fire department.
