Waccamaw Fire Dept. resumes daytime staffing following exodus

WACCAMAW, NC (WWAY) — Just a couple of days after a fire chief was fired and several of his volunteer firefighters resigned, the Waccamaw Volunteer Fire Department resumed daytime staffing Tuesday.

Brunswick County Fire Marshal Scott Garner said following the Friday meeting, fire officials were assessing what volunteers were left and replacing their part-time staffing that left. The department was never officially closed, he said. It resumed daytime operations, which he said typically means paid staffers work in the building to supplement the volunteers. Garner said on Monday that emergency calls were being answered and there could be some slight delays in response times.
