What an Amazing Day!

Today was quite a day as we took part in the arrival of the "Pink Heals" Tour as they rolled into town.  We started out about 8:00 a.m. with Engine 8 and our Fire Chief's car, on  a drive from Summerville via Highway 17-A through Moncks Corner and on to Jamestown. From there, we followed Highway 45 through the Francis Marion Forest to McClellanville where we picked up the pink trucks and escorted them into Charleston and a stop at MUSC.  Later in the afternoon, we joined them at Park Circle in North Charleston with an enthusiastic crowd of supporters.  We took hundreds of photos and invite you to view some of them on our Facebook page by clicking on the above caption.  The photo posted here really says it all. Thanks to Allen Duke, the Red Knights Motorcycle Club, the "Pink Heals" folks, the Women Firefighters of the Lowcountry, and all the other firefighters and people who let us share the great day with them.

"The Bullet" To Make Her Debut This Week!

We have completed Engine 8 and she will make her first official appearance for our Team this coming week as part of the escort for the "Pink Heals Tour" as they arrive in town.  We will meet them in McClellanville at 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday morning and escort them to the MUSC Horseshoe where they will be part of the MUSC Health Fair. Later in the afternoon, it's on to Park Circle in North Charleston for another appearance with the pink fire engines starting at 3:00 pm. before we wind up the day with them at a stop at the Market Street Grill in Northwoods Mall from 6:00-8:00 p.m. Should be a great day. Come out and join us!
