We have been thrashing on the "Big John" fire truck for a month now to get it ready to make the trip to the SC State Fire-Rescue Conference coming up on June 6 in Myrtle Beach. Many thanks to all who have helped us work on making this dream a reality and will not give up on reaching our goal of completing this truck in honor of our good friend, John Winn. It has truly provided us with a place to create build new friendships, renew old ones, and to be a part of a project work that we can all be proud of. 

Regardless of department affiliation, people have come together to help Chief Winn is his campaign to increase awareness of the need for proper medical testing to protect our firefighters from life threatening illnesses. Stay tuned for more updates as we continue our work.
