    I wish the Reporter would make the correct name changes. The EMS service is provided by the Auxiliary, their station name and number will be assigned within the next month. Station 9 Fire and Rescue is provided by Lake Waccamaw Fire and Rescue department.

    • John

      • Concerned Citizen

        Station 9 is station 9 Lake Waccamaw Fire and Rescue, Hallsboro, Buckhead, and Bolton are the mutual aid stations (each with their own station identification number) that are providing fire coverage until station 9 reopens. They have provided a great service to this community in this unfortunate time.

        • John
