Colleton County Fire-Rescue


The Fleet Management Department and Logistics Division spent the week of 28-April conducting the annual pumper testing at headquarters. Several off-duty firefighters assisted in moving the 34 Engines, two Ladders and ARFF over the four days it took to complete the job.  The crews started at day break each morning and worked until around 1900. The drivers had the units lined up waiting in an effort to speed up the process. Any mechanical issues were quickly handled by Fleet Management. All apparatus passed without any major problems this year; a tribute to our mechanics and the care they render to our fleet. The process took about an hour per vehicle. John Stieglitz cooked lunch for everyone each day, so the personnel would not have to stop testing.
