I just wanted to thank all the responders that helped with
this crash involving the bus and the students coming from Florida. My cousin was
on that bus and I got the call around 5 am. My thoughts and prayers are with the
driver's family. Also I want to thank the high school band from SC that came
down to the hospital to help out with our students. It was very nice to see the
students that helped ours and the superintendent from the SC school that also
helped. We are so very thankful for the hospital for making a huge effort to
make sure that the kids and parents were taken care of. It means a huge deal to
us that so many caring people showed them such wonderful care. Thanks again.
Sorry for the rambling on just have been extremely worried about my cousins and
the others on the charter bus.
Much appreciation to all of you,

Just a note of thanks for what you and all of the fire fighters did for us in regards to the fire at my shed. I am most grateful to both you and my
neighbors for #1 calling 911 and the response of your engines. It could of been a great tragedy but thanks to everyone it was just a lost of a piece of equipment. Please extend my deepest appreciation to all of your men.

just want to tell you how much I appreciate you and your staff!!! They
have really been working hard to stamp our orders when they come through the
door. I have seen a few almost get run over by the person at the head of
the stretcher in order to get that paper stamped for us. It is a HUGE help
and we are held accountable to the time that is stamped on the paper. Our
new goal is to have an EMS offload within 5-10 min of arrival to the ED.
When we are able to capture the correct arrival time in our system…we are able
to better understand how long it is taking to offload!!
have some excellent staff who work very hard at making every attempt to provide
us with what we need to keep things rolling here in the ED and we GREATLY
also want to thank all of your staff who came and stayed with us last Wednesday
– providing traffic control and helping hands when we needed it….to include
just holding the IV bag and applying some pressure so that it would flow!!
Little things are HUGE helps when they are needed, and Colleton County Fire
Rescue staff have been excellent in not only providing the HUGE hands when
needed, but also the small touches that make our work more manageable.
am proud to say that I live in Colleton County where we have one of the BEST
crews of emergency personnel anywhere!!! HANDS DOWN!!! And most
importantly - - - we are working together as a TEAM!!!
again for all you do and your support of our Emergency Department - - -we
couldn’t do it without you guys (and gals!!)

Dear Colleton County Fire Rescue,
My name is Steven Harris and I live in Winter Haven FL, and I would like to take a minute to thank your department and all who assisted in the recovery of a friend. I know that you do not know me or the family that you helped locate a missing loved one, but your work does not go unnoticed. Colleton County SC is a long way from my home in Florida and my friends hometown in Indiana, but your hard work has brought these three areas closer together.
Your department responded to a fatal MVC on I95 on 11-May-2009 in which a friend was involved. This person was a fellow classmate and teammate all through high school. Even though we had not had much contact the last few years, hearing of his passing was hard to understand. I heard of this tragedy through other friends and started looking for information pertaining to the accident. I know that no investigation can ever return my friend to his family, but at least they are able to have some form of closure thanks to the extraordinary efforts of the Colleton County Fire Rescue and South Carolina Highway Patrol.
I know that you all will say that it was just another day on the job, but your determination and big hearts returned a friend and loved one to those who will miss him dearly.
Thank You Once Again,
And God Bless.

Job well done
On behalf of the people of South Carolina, I want to thank the members of the Charleston, North Charleston, Isle of Palms and Colleton County fire departments.
When the recent wildfire broke out in Myrtle Beach, these men and women were the first to respond, performing their task with skill and courage, and earning the admiration of many from Horry County.
In short, our firefighters walk the walk, and on behalf of the people of our state I thank them — not only for the personnel, equipment and long hours of hard work, but simply for doing what they do.
