Columbia Richland Fire would play a supporting role for the annual Fire Rescue SC Conference.
For the second straight year the conference was held in the capital city, going from June 24 to June 29. Firefighters representing departments across the state were in attendance. Activities were held at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center as well as other area sites.
The department’s training complex would play host to SCFR’s Hand in Hand Engine School. Over three days firefighters in attendance learned tips in several areas of firefighting, including hose deployment and nozzle techniques. The training was provided by staff with Hornet Fire Training and supported by CFD engineers.
CFD members would also be active supporting activities at the convention center over the course of the week. Several hours were put in by the members of Recruit Class 2019-01 who helped setup for the conference and also worked on site during it.
