Fire departments and technology centers from all over South Carolina sent firefighting Explorers and Junior Firefighters to compete in a competition at the S.C. Fire Academy in Columbia on March 8. The academy asked crews from Lugoff Fire-Rescue (LF-R) to coordinate the event after a successful similar event at the S.C. Firefighter’s Association Conference in June 2013. One hundred forty-eight individual Explorers and Junior Firefighters and 24 teams competed at this first-annual event during the annual Southeastern Fire School.
