A series of basketball games will be organized between the two entities, which will raise proceeds to help county fire stations.
Cherokee County Fire and Emergency Services fire fighters and Cherokee County School District faculty members will come together on the basketball court for a good cause. The Cherokee County Council of PTA is organizing six basketball games in which teams will compete in a game of hoops to raise funds. Those proceeds would fire stations purchase Apple iPads embedded with GPS capabilities that will allow them to arrive sooner to scenes of fires, said Council President Adam Belanger.
