The National Fallen Firefighters Foundation has produced a video on the changes and transitions in the Charleston, SC Fire Department following the deadly Sofa Store fire which claimed nine Charleston firefighters.

From the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation, “Charleston 9: The Ultimate Sacrifice”, looks at the dramatic changes made in the operations of South Carolina’s Charleston Fire Department following the deaths of nine firefighters on June 18, 2007. The video, produced by STATter911 Communications and Greg Guise Media, focuses on how the leadership of the late Chief Tom Carr helped the department recover after such a devastating loss.
