The Charleston 9
Today marks the tenth anniversary of the Sofa Super Store Fire. This event tragically killed nine Charleston firefighters, impacted their families forever, and propelled the Charleston Fire Department into a spotlight few other departments in the United States have ever experienced.
Members past and present, along with firefighters from across the country, will be coming together this evening at 1900 hours to celebrate the lives of the "Charleston 9" and honor their families in an expanded remembrance of their sacrifice. The "Charleston 9", Captain Mike Benke, Captain Billy Hutchinson, Captain Louis Mulkey, Engineer Brad Baity, Engineer Mark Kelsey, Assistant Engineer Michael French, Firefighter Melvin Champaign, Firefighter Earl Drayton, and Firefighter Brandon Thompson, climbed aboard their apparatus alongside other CFD members, and responded to the Sofa Super Store as they had responded to countless alarms before. In a matter of thirty minutes, the nine veteran firefighters were gone, numerous others injured, and the community was thrust into disbelief and mourning. We pause today to formally reflect on the day of the tragedy and take stock of what has changed in their names over the last 10 years.
We honor the Charleston 9, their families, and the past and present members of the CFD by working in a deliberate manner each day to improve the safety of our members and the community we serve. Changes have been made throughout our organization, and in the fire service, as a result of this tragedy. And though we officially recognize the sacrifices made on this day, we remember them each day through our commitment to continued service, dedication, and desire to progress.
Over the last 10 years our department and our community have embarked on a mission of coping and recovery through unprecedented change and continued progress. We couldn’t have accomplished all that has been achieved without the support from our local community, our fire service family (locally and across the nation), and the incredible team members of this department. We thank you for your support and your continued desire to honor the Charleston 9.
For more on what the department has accomplished we would ask that you take a moment to view the previously published video by the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation, Charleston 9: The Ultimate Sacrifice - sc-charleston.civicplus.com/index.aspx?nid=986. ... See MoreSee Less
