Firefighters in South Sumter have had another busy 48 hours with multiple calls to answer.  Two of the emergency runs for the period were MVAs that occurred in the area.   Thankfully no one was seriously injured at either scene, but patient(s) at both were transported to the hospital for minor injuries and precautionary reasons.  The Memorial Day Weekend is only halfway over so more “business” is likely to come our way.
