Thanks to a donation through Charleston’s 9/11 Heroes Run and a DHEC EMS grant, the agency was able to purchase the Handtevy System.

“With their support, we were able to purchase this life-saving equipment for our pediatric population,” Berkeley County EMS posted on Facebook.

Each month for the next five months, North Branch Library and SCDHEC will team up to offer the nutrition classes at the library.
