Colleton County Fire-Rescue



21/October/2017 PADI Dive Class

Eight personnel are currently participating an a PADI Open Water SCUBA Diving Class being conducted at HQ and the pool at the Elks Lodge during October. This is the first of many courses to prepare our personnel to function on the Dive Team. The county is surrounded by waterways with many additional rivers and streams. The Divers play an important role in the rescue or recovery of victims involved in waterway mishaps. They also assist Law Enforcement with searches involving water. The department currently has 20 certified divers. Following the class room portion of the course, these personnel will conduct their certifications dives in Florida during the first week of November.
