Clayton Stairs/Times Georgetown County Council passed a resolution Tuesday recognizing Prince George, Camden Creek at Allston Plantation, and DeBordieu Colony communities in Georgetown County as nationally recognized Firewise Communities. These local communities are three of only 23 communities in the state of South Carolina that are nationally recognized Firewise Communities working toward the common goal of reducing loss of life, property and resources to wildland fire. County Council encourages community responsibility for planning in the design of safe communities as well as effective emergency response, individual responsibility for safer home construction and design, landscaping and maintenance. Above, County Council chair Johnny Morant presents representatives from the three communities with certificates in honor of their accomplishments.
