Hotdog Fundraiser Aims for Rescue PWC

“I want us to be able to emphasize rescue over recovery,” said Chief Brandy Nance.  

The Lake Waccamaw Fire and Rescue Department will be holding their annual hotdog fundraiser and boot drop on Saturday, July 2, at the station. The department currently has a $20,000 response readiness goal they are trying to meet for a personal water craft (PWC). The jet ski will significantly reduce response times during a water rescue event.  

“I want us to be able to emphasize rescue over recovery,” said Chief Brandy Nance.  

There will be hotdogs, drinks, and a cornhole game set up at the sale, and raffle tickets for a Henry Golden Boy “Fireman Edition” will be up for grabs. T-shirts are also available for purchase at both the fire station and Town Hall with proceeds going toward the PWC.  

Lake Waccamaw Fire and Rescue is located at 203 Flemington Drive. Those who are interested in donating to the cause can contact Nance at, or call the station at 910.646.4441.
