At a dinner last night, Oconee Emergency Services formally said thank you to all the men and women who volunteer their time and effort to the county’s various public safety services. Two men were singled out for lifetime service awards: Wayne Garland of the Walhalla Rescure Squad and Bob Kinder of the county’s dive and rescue squad. Charlie King of Emergency Services says Kinder and Garland have been part of emergency service response family; Kinder since the 70s and Garland since the 80s.
