Horry Co. addresses volunteer firefighters 'pay per call' issue

Posted: Updated:

HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - Horry County council members voted to pass a 'pay per call' policy for volunteer firefighters in its first reading. 

Right now, volunteers are paid $15 per call.

Firefighters are called for a number of reasons, including: medical conditions, accidents and fires. Those calls can last anywhere from an hour to much longer. The last time changes were made to the pay per call policy was about three months ago. It went from $10 per call to $15.

There will be two more discussions on this ordinance.
