INDIAN LAND – It’s not the fires or emergency calls that Raymond Griffin remembers most, but the firefighters who have served by his side.
Griffin, chief of the Indian Land Volunteer Fire Department, has seen his share of blazes, car accidents and rescue operations. But when he thinks back on his more than 30 years of service, it’s the faces of his family of firefighters he recalls most clearly.
Walking through the lobby of the Indian Land fire station, Griffin scans a series of snapshots covering the walls. There’s a story behind each one.
