Congratulations to Brent McClellan, Chief of Midway Fire and Rescue, and Aaron Bostic, Assistant Fire Chief at Georgetown County Fire and EMS. They were recognized this month for completing the South Carolina Chief Fire Officer Program, hosted by the South Carolina State Association of Fire Chiefs. The recognition took place at the organization’s annual conference in Myrtle Beach.
McClellan and Bostic were among the 48 graduates of the inaugural class for this new program. The program is geared toward empowering fire service leaders with the knowledge to navigate many of the unique challenges that come with managing today’s fire service and planning for the future.
The course was held over two weekends this summer and involved presentations, classwork, work sessions, and out-of-class assignments. Both McClellan and Bostic will now bring the knowledge and experience gained through the program back to their respective departments, allowing for a stronger, better-rounded fire service here in Georgetown County.
Georgetown County Emergency Services hopes to continue to utilize future offerings of this program to help enhance our fire service leadership in Georgetown County.
