CRFD Recognizes 58 Firefighters at Promotional Ceremonies

During the second week of November the Columbia-Richland Fire Department honored 58 of our members who earned promotions within CRFD over the course of 2020.

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic the recognitions took place in a series of smaller ceremonies from Wednesday, November 11, 2020 through Friday, November 13, 2020. Columbia-Richland Fire Chief Aubrey D. Jenkins would officially present each firefighter with their new badge as well as a certificate of recognition. Each honoree was also allowed to invite a limited number of their family members to be in attendance. All guests in attendance were required to follow COVID-19 safety guidelines.

CRFD would like to officially congratulate our members listed below on their recent promotions:
