Walker County will be sending a small group to a blood drive in Catoosa County in honor of Prison Fire Chief Matthew Mann on Wednesday at 12:30 p.m. The group will include Walker County Fire Chief and Emergency Services Director Blake Hodge. Many of firefighters have already given blood in support of Chief Mann, so not all are eligible this time.
Chief Mann continues to recover from injuries suffered during a serious crash on Jan. 19. He received over 50 units of blood while in the ICU.
