Letter: Supporting our volunteer firefighters
Splash Screen 2732x2732
I write to clarify comments in this paper that suggest that this council will transition to a “professional fire service.” Let me say again what every councilman knows: that volunteers are the heart and soul of our county fire service. We are committed to keeping our spirit of volunteerism alive and vibrant -- and these steps buffer and relieve burdens unduly growing with time on our great volunteers. Kershaw County is already taking measures this year to improve the volunteer service and the compensation and incentives for our wonderful volunteers.
