$1M Going to Two Florence County (SC) Fire Departments

Some funds will go toward replacing Olanta Rural Fire Department Station Two.

Florence County (SC) Council recently approved the use of nearly $1 million from its penny sales tax to go to two local fire departments, reports wbtw.com.

Some funds will go toward replacing Olanta Rural Fire Department’s Station Two, which officials say lacks space; $25,000 was approved to purchase land for the location of a new facility. The new station will house a pumper, tanker, and brush truck, the report says.

The trucks planned to go to the new station will be able to hold 4,500 gallons of water. Officials hope to build training grounds at the facility.

Howe Springs Fire Department was approved for funding as well, with the department set to receive two tankers and a rescue vehicle for $959,000, according to the report.
