17 Jul New Association Appointments Posted at 13:18h in Uncategorized by Billy Gibson 0 Comments 0 Likes It is my pleasure to announce that Dr. Robert Ridgeway of Clarendon County, and Chief Kyle Minick of North Charleston have agreed to fill two vital roles in the mission of our Association. Dr. Ridgeway will serve as the Medical Officer which will provide guidance and input to the Health & Safety and EMS committees as they tackle several issues throughout the year such as firefighters physicals and mental wellness. Chief Minick will step in as Chairman of the S.C. Fire Sprinkler Coalition. A HUGE THANK YOU to Chief Bruce Kline who took on the Sprinkler project at its inception and has led this initiative to where we are today. Chief Kline will remain active on the committee and assist Chief Minick in the transition. South Carolina is on the forefront of the home sprinkler issue, and I feel Kyle will lead boldly into the next phase of the fight. As I have said often, we must get involved and stay informed to be successful. I urge all firefighters of South Carolina to do just that by supporting the functions of the Association with their involvement.
