Colleton County Fire-Rescue


5/13/2011- Relay for Life (A-shift)

Colleton County Firefighters participated in the annual Relay for Life event at the High School Track Friday evening 13-May. Fire Marshal Richard Sheffield coordinated Fire-Rescue’s participation which included multiple personnel. Firefighters and their families operated the concession stand for the participants. It involved weeks of food collections and donations, preparing food and they operated the dunking booth. The event draws several thousand local participants to raise funds for cancer research as part of the national campaign. All proceeds are donated to the Relay For Life Campaign. Engine 19, Medic 19 and Medic 102 stood by until approximately 22:00 when thunderstorms caused the event to end early.
