  • Concerned Citizen

    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

      Another false statement by the “concerned” one. Station 9 Fire and Rescue is being provided by Hallsboro, Buckhead, and Bolton!

      • Concerned Citizen

        No sir,
        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

          That is what I meant. It is great that the surrounding departments have stepped up and you are very correct in saying “during this unfortunate time. All involved needs to grow up and do what is right for the community
