As the holidays approach, Sumter citizens have much to be thankful for this season. While we have encountered one of the worst flood events seen in Sumter County for many years, we are most thankful that no weather related fatalities were declared in Sumter County. Our ever-ready professional emergency service staff provided the best care throughout this horrific flood.
