The Atlanta Fire & Rescue Department spent part of Saturday making sure local families have a happy Thanksgiving.
For the second year in a row, the department handed out free Thanksgiving turkeys to families who need a little help getting dinner on the table this year.
The turkeys were given away on a first come, first serve basis.
Fire Chief Kelvin Cochran says he hopes the department carries on the tradition for years to come. "This year we had tremendous support from the community and businesses, grocery stores, that actually help us get the inventory, and they are committed to helping us on an annual basis so we're pretty confident that we'll be able to do this every year," he said.
Firefighters also handed out literature on how to keep safe during the cold winter months.
