“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.

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.
