Colleton County Fire-Rescue


The Fire-Rescue Commission was notified by the National Fire Academy that Assistant Chief David Greene successfully completed the four year Executive Fire Officer Program. The program requires attendance to the NFA for two weeks each year followed by a six month research project. Each project was community specific and related  to actual issues facing Colleton County. Our department was able to address many of those needs identified to improve safety and response capabilities here in the county.  

The course contents consisted of:  

·         Year one - Executive Development

·         Year two - Strategies for Community Risk Reduction

·         Year three - Executive Analysis of Fire Service Operations and Emergency Management

·         Year four - Executive Leadership  

Three of Chief Greene’s papers were published and included in the library at the NFA.  

Fire Commission Chairman LaVern Polk and Chief McRoy presented Chief Greene with his certificate and NFA-EFO pin. County Council also presented Greene with a Proclamation recognizing his achievement.

After the Council meeting, Assistant Chief Greene stated, "I feel priviliged to have been accepted into the Executive Fire Officer Program and I am very grateful for the educational opportunity, as I learned a great deal.  Above all, I am honored to have represented the many dedicated men and women of Colleton County Fire-Rescue.  I sincerely appreciate the recognition."
