LLR joins the S.C. State Association of Fire Chiefs and other members of the state’s fire service Wednesday, April 2, 2014, in remembering a firefighter who died last year while serving his community.
Each year, the Chiefs Association holds a memorial service at the S.C. Fallen Firefighters Memorial, housed on the grounds of the S.C. Fire Academy. The name of Assistant Chief Rodney Clifton Hardee, of Loris, has been added to the Memorial Wall. Hardee, with 40 years of service to the department, died July 9, 2013, after responding to a brush fire.
