Columbia County received the Southeast Governmental Fleet Managers Association’s (SGFMA) Award for Quality Fleet Management during their Annual Meeting on September 15. The award is based on a department’s accomplishments and judged on originality, innovation, effectiveness, and applicability in their specific area. Due to COVID, SGFMA based their decision on the organization’s top four initiatives during the past two years.
The fleet service isn't the only department receiving national recognition for its outstanding work. The Columbia County Emergency Management Agency has been named the 2021 Weather-Ready Nation Ambassador of Excellence by the staff of NWS Columbia, South Carolina.
