Quotes

"You really have to make it attractive to volunteers with their busy lifestyles," Richards said. "You also have to have well-thought-out training. The little bit of time they have, you have to make it worthwhile. The busier the department, the lesser the problem."
"There is a history of fathers, sons, grandsons serving. I can go through my roster and show lineage of four or five generations that participate."
"So, it puts us in a position to have a voice in a very critical place to make sure we don't get run over by a bus and to make sure that the needs of the people of Horry County are thought of when you're talking about national standards" Crosby said
"Vietnam War veterans and all veterans deserve our highest respect and gratitude," said Chief Bill Metcalf, IAFC president. "It's long past due for those who returned after their military service and went on to serve their communities in the fire service to be formally praised and welcomed home."
