Chapter News

We’ve had an eventful couple of months at SC ASSP!

At our November meeting we had a great presentation by one of our members, Mike Ehrmantraut, on a couple of large industrial fire investigations and we gathered an impressive amount of bike safety gear to donate to Toys-for-Tots. Thank you to all who made donations!

We had a great lunch in December to celebrate the holidays together and we welcomed a couple of new members!

We’re looking forward to a strong year with SC ASSP in 2022 and we are excited to be kicking off the year with our first site visit in a long time! Plan to join us on January 20th in Sumter for a site tour of Jet-Vac (I’m told they will be bringing out the big equipment and doing a demonstration for us!). Then mark your calendar for February 18th for our PDC! We will be applying for CEUs once again this year and already have a few great sessions lined up. More to come soon!
