LF-R performs live fire drills in donated structures

Firefighters from Lugoff Fire-Rescue were able to perform live fire training drills for several months in old storage warehouses on US 1 South in Lugoff given to the department for training, thanks to a donation by Mid Carolina Credit Union. The warehouses were to be demolished, but were donated instead to firefighters for the training until construction preparation was to begin. The site will become the new Mid Carolina Credit Union Lugoff Branch for a new two-story, 12,000-square-foot main office.
