SC Fallen Firefighters Memorial

Today members of the BTFD attended the South Carolina Firefighters Association's annual SC Fallen Firefighters Memorial Service. This service is to remember all of the firefighters in our state that have died in the Line of Duty throughout the years. Unfortunately, this year we added two names to the wall. Firefighter Kellen Andrew Fleming of the Westview-Fairforest Fire Department and Lt John Morgan Burns of the Myrtle Beach Fire Department. RIP Brothers, we'll take it from here.
