Retiring Blackville Fire Chief Hariel Corley took center stage Monday night as he was honored by the Blackville Town Council and firefighters.
Corley, 73, recently retired after spending 47 years with the Blackville Fire Department.
He said, “Just being able to successfully lead a group of people” such as his fellow volunteer firefighters is his greatest achievement over the years.
During that time he lobbied council for equipment, training and funding. A new fire truck, brush truck and equipment stand testimony to that effort.
