Our most heartfelt thoughts go out to the families of Summerville Asst. Chief Jim Lord and St. Andrews Capt. Buddy Maupin in their time of sorrow. I had the honor of knowing and working with both of these men. Chief Lord was well-known in the Fire Service of the Lowcountry and was instrumental in promoting fire safety and prevention. Buddy and I worked together for many years at St. Andrews starting back when my son, Grant and his daughter, Michelle, were just babies. Rest in peace, my friends.
