Lugoff Fire-Rescue (LF-R) is purchasing several new pieces of firefighting gear after recently receiving a nearly $5,000 grant from the International Paper Foundation in Eastover. LF-R will obtain large-diameter water manifolds to be placed on all of its fire pumpers. The LF-R applied for the grant in June 2014, according to a press release from Chief Dennis Ray.
