Enterprise, Ala. – (WDNews) The Enterprise Chamber of Commerce showed their support for local first responders by donating to the Enterprise Fire Department’s community outreach programs. Executive Director Erin Grantham presented a $650 check to Fire Chief Christopher Davis, along with firefighters Chris Wise and Justin Archer, and Mayor William E. Cooper. The donation, a portion of proceeds from the “Half Pint 0.5K” event held in downtown Enterprise on March 16, aims to bolster the department’s efforts in serving the community.

During the presentation at Enterprise City Hall, Grantham expressed gratitude to the first responders for their dedication to community events.

“Every time the Enterprise Chamber of Commerce hosts an event, all three of these groups are a part of major part of it and we appreciate you,” Grantham said as she held back tears. “We are happy to do this and hope you can use it for your organizations’ community outreach programs.

“The Enterprise Fire Department is grateful for this donation from the Enterprise Chamber of Commerce and we will put the money to good use as part of our community risk reduction efforts,’ Fire Chief Christopher Davis said. “Our crews always are happy to support events like the Chamber’s St. Patrick’s Day festivities and to share our fire safety and prevention messaging. This donation will allow us to continue to work toward our goal of every home within Enterprise city limits having a working smoke alarm.”

Additionally, the Chamber also provided $650 checks to both the Enterprise Police Department and the Coffee County Community Emergency Response Team, highlighting their commitment to supporting local public safety initiatives.

Residents of Enterprise are reminded of the availability of free, working smoke alarms through the Enterprise Fire Department’s website or by calling (334) 348-2641. Free installation services are also provided for those who qualify, ensuring the safety and well-being of all community members.
