COLLEGE STATION- Thousands of firefighters from across the state are in College Station attending Texas A&M's Brayton Fire Training School. A local firefighter is inviting them to his restaurant to wind down, with a twist on where some of the profits are going.
We found a few firemen relaxing at Prospector's Grill and Saloon in College Station, having dinner and enjoying a cold beverage.
The restaurant is owned by a volunteer firefighter with the South Brazos County Fire Department. A portion of the money this week will go to the 100 Club which is a program that assists dependents of firefighters and law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty.
Texas A&M's Brayton Fire Training School is impacting our local economy in a big way.
According to the Bryan-College Station Convention and Visitors Bureau those attending this week's training give a nearly three and a half million dollar boost to our local economy.
