Georgetown County is pleased to announce that Brent McClellan has been selected as the next Chief of Midway Fire Rescue. 

Chief McClellan began his fire service career in 1993 as a volunteer in Lenore, WV. He became a certified Paramedic in 1996 before moving to Pawleys Island in 2003 when he accepted a firefighter position with Midway. 

During his time at Midway, he climbed the ranks to the level of Battalion Chief. In 2016, he accepted the position of Assistant Fire Chief with the Georgetown City Fire Department, where he currently serves.  

“We are extremely honored to welcome Chief McClellan back to Midway Fire Rescue,” said Brandon Ellis, director of Georgetown County Emergency Services. “The professionalism and experience that he brings to the job will help continue the growth and progression of our emergency services team here in Georgetown County."

Chief McClellan has an Associate’s Degree in Emergency Medical Technology from Southern West Virginia Community College and an Associate’s Degree in Fire Science from Columbia Southern University. He resides in Pawleys Island with his wife, Penny. They attend Pawleys Island Community Church and have twin adult children, Caleb, who is a 2nd Lieutenant in the Army, and Calee, who is finishing graduate school at the University of South Carolina. 

Chief McClellan will begin his new position of Fire Chief for Midway Fire Rescue on Aug. 1.
