On March 14, 2014 in General, Public Safety
 
Conway, South Carolina – Horry County Amateur Radio Emergency Coordinator, Matt McGuire has won the South Carolina Emergency Management Association’s (SCEMA) Amateur Radio Operator of the Year for 2014. Mr. McGuire was first licensed in 1995 and has been the Amateur Radio Emergency Coordinator for Horry County since 1996. He created a robust and sustainable amateur radio program within Horry County that has greatly benefited the county and municipalities. Matt’s network of amateur radio operators supports the county Emergency Operations Center, regional hospitals, and hurricane shelters. With Mr. McGuire’s considerable assistance, Horry County Emergency Management secured a federal grant to procure essential equipment to improve communications. He has also worked closely with hurricane shelters, created amateur radio kits for each shelter and continually trained himself and other amateur radio operators. Matt McGuire’s dedication to Horry County and his willingness to volunteer is exemplary.

Mr. McGuire was nominated for the SCEMA recognition by Horry County Emergency Management.
