    INDIAN LAND – Officials with the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) met with Indian Land residents Tuesday, May 15, to discuss its actions against a local recycler.
    Pressley’s Recycling Center, 9531 Charlotte Highway, has been the focus of unwanted attention since residents’ complaints late last year led to a Dec. 16 DHEC compliance letter regarding regulatory violations.

  • Educators deserve honors in Hall

  • Passion, love for EMS a career calling

    My mother was very sick during most of my childhood. She had colon cancer. My first experience with EMS was when I was very young and EMS had to come to our home and take my mom to Columbia because she was so ill. I remember watching the medics and thinking how smart they were and how wonderfully they cared for her. At that time I knew I wanted to be a medic.

  • EMS a rewarding experience, career

    My start in EMS began when I joined the Unity Volunteer Fire Department. My chief was Dennis Robinson. Dennis was so cool during the most devastating disasters. He never got excited. He was not only a fire chief, but a hazardous material specialist, rescue-certified in many fields and an EMT basic. When I completed my fire training, I wanted to be like Chief Robinson and learn everything I could about fire and EMS.

  • Bundy wanted to help those in need

    I      was working on tugboats on the Intracoastal Waterway when we heard a call over the radio from the boat in front of us.
    “Tug Royal engineer, my husband has fallen behind the wheel and is unconscious. I don’t know what to do.”
    We pulled over to the boat and performed CPR on the man until the Coast Guard and Marine Corps helicopter arrived.

  • I want to be able to save lives

    There is a 1-year-old child choking; what would you do to help? There is a 34-year-old man who collapses while walking; would you know what to do? These types of events can happen to anyone at any time. Do you know how to handle a situation of that kind?
    I am a 26-year-old Hispanic man who loves to help anyone, no matter where they are from or who they are. When someone is in need of help, I want to be the one who can make a difference or even save his or her life.

  • EMS left big impression on boy

    When I was very young, I remember the day when my great aunt was extremely sick and EMS was called to her home. My mother, several other family members and I were with her. When EMS arrived, they were working diligently and tenaciously to help her in her time of need. I remember, even at a young age, how impressed I was with how they treated her and the family.
