Tuesday night was the first skill night of the Sumter County Firefighter certification class.  It was a tremendous night for the fire service and it was great to see candidates from all over the region working hard to achieve the two minute mark.  All of the people involved in this class are dedicating months of their time to achieve this certification.  It is certainly wonderful that Sumter County is served by people that are willing to give so much of themselves.  Enjoy a few pictures below from the class, and tune in to southsumterfire.org over the next few weeks to see all the photos on a separate page.
