Fire Rescue Receives Bucket Brigade Grant to Update Turnout Gear

Georgia Pacific Representative Presents Grant Check to Oconee County Representatives

Oconee County Fire Rescue was recently awarded a Bucket Brigade Grant from Georgia-Pacific to help update the department’s turnout gear. Georgia-Pacific representatives visited Station 8 to present the grant check, learn about the department, and meet some of the county’s volunteer firefighters. The $2,500 grant will help fund the purchase of full-body protective gear. 

“This grant will provide essential safety and protection of our firefighters against fire, heat, and debris,” said Fire Chief Bruce Thaxton.
