Cancer Coalition

A different type of bucket brigade

February 17, 2023

The Cancer Coalition in partnership with State Fire yesterday filled 500 decon buckets to give to fire departments across South Carolina.

“This has been a long time coming,” said Tracy Williams, chair of the Health & Safety Committee and member of the Cancer Coalition. “We knew we had funds through grants and once we determined we wanted to do decon buckets, it was a matter of COVID hitting and the supply chain slowing the process,” he continued, “But through the help of our coalition partners, we were able to secure, store, and stuff those items.”

Included in the buckets: decon wipes, brush, trash bags, tape, dish soap, spray bottle, reducer, hose, spray nozzle, Y adapter, and a flyer with a QR code that leads to information on decon and cancer reduction information.

Many thanks to the members of our bucket brigade for your work in stuffing the buckets.
