MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) - Four Horry County firefighters also trained as paramedics are suing saying the county did not give them promised pay raises.

The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reports (https://bit.ly/1sJ2R1X) that the four, who have a combined 77 years of service with Horry County Fire and Rescue, did not receive promised raises for being trained as both firefighters and paramedics.

The lawsuit contends that under an incentive system to get firefighters to train as paramedics, the county did not properly factor in their years of service in their pay.

The attorney representing the four says they sued because they have been trying to get the situation resolved for almost two years. A spokeswoman for Horry County says the county has not yet been served with the lawsuit.
