Camden’s and Lugoff’s fire departments are often lauded as some of the best in South Carolina, and that legacy appears to also pertain to the next generation. Explorer Scout groups from both departments dominated a competition at the South Carolina Fire Academy in Columbia on March 14. Crews from Lugoff Fire-Rescue (LF-R) coordinated the event again, being asked to do so after successfully helping with last year’s competition and another at the S.C. Firefighter’s Association Conference in Myrtle Beach in June 2014.
