We traveled to Summerville this evening to participate in the SFD Annual Fire Prevention Parade and Show. There was a large number of departments represented along with some beautiful apparatus. Special thanks to Women Firefighters of the Lowcountry members Candice Acord, Karen Johnson and Marie McCulley for making us feel at home and to Laura Kelley for handling the driving duties and entertaining the children and adults alike. Our old Chief's car, "Big Red", was a hit with the kids as they "drove" it and wound up the siren.
Thanks to all of the firefighters in attendance for carrying on the great traditions of the Fire Service and presenting themselves in a most professional manner. I am especially thankful for the opportunity to share in this experience with you all.
