10/05/15 143 W, 2 I - + 2 - 4 SC National Guard Rescues Flooded Fire Trucks

Charleston, Columbia, and other parts of South Carolina have been hit with historic flooding, as local, regional, and national news reports have reported. The operational impact on fire departments is being reported via incident social media reports. Carolinas Fire Page on Twitter is a particularly good source. They've noted some facility (New Holland FD) and apparatus (Charleston FD) impact in their tweets this weekend. Other reports are being posted to Facebook. The South Carolina National Guard added four photos yesterday of the 108th Chemical Company and 1-118th Forward Support Company performing fire truck recoveries. See the posting for additional pictures or to download the larger versions. Readers, what other incidents can you report? (We'll cover citizen rescues and out-of-state mutual aid in another posting.)
