Colleton County Fire-Rescue


The Fire-Rescue Commission presented Ms. Jeanne Griffin, the former County Finance Director, with a plaque, recognizing her many contributions to the Fire-Rescue Department. Ms. Griffith, who left the County Government in September, managed all of the Fire Improvement Bonds in addition to her other duties. She assisted with budgets and the financial side of the operation. The County Council began issuing Fire Improvement Bonds in 2000 to build and equip new fire stations, upgrade protective equipment and replace aging apparatus. Ms. Griffith assisted the Commission in many ways and provided a great deal of guidance. She was instrumental in locating funding to purchase equipment, such as the Two Breathing Air Compressor's purchased this year. Additionally, she assisted with several Grants and helped to re-establish the Volunteer Incentive Program, Pay-for-Calls for our Volunteer Firefighters.
Ms. Griffith accepted a job with the City of Mount Pleasant in their Finance Department.
