Recruitment and Retention

The goal of the SCSFA Recruitment and Retention staff is to assist local departments in establishing a sufficiently staffed, adequately trained, diverse, and safe cadre of new volunteer members of local fire departments and maintaining a healthy, well balanced and emotionally stable workforce.

We accomplish this through providing resources and personal interaction with departmental leadership, fire service members, local communities and organizations for recruiting and retaining volunteer fire and emergency responders.

For more information on recruitment and retention programs click here. This information includes scvolunteerfire.org, Sound of Sirens campaign, South Carolina Career and Technology Center Firefighting Program, and South Carolina FAST (Firefighter’s Assistance and Support Team).

Heritage and History

The fire service of South Carolina has been left a rich history generally known only, valued and appreciated by a very few older generation firefighters. Little of the history of our State’s fire service has been preserved and that which is known of the past is usually found stored away in boxes and stored in obscure corners of a fire station.

While a handful of fire departments have preserved various items of memorabilia, little written history, and virtually no oral history, has been saved for future descendants to enjoy and from which to learn.

Join us in this history section to learn about South Carolina’s fire service past as we document its birth, growth, and contributions. Help us celebrate the deeds of brave men and women, their sacrifices, and contributions in the performance of duty and service to their great State. Click here to enjoy and learn about yesterday’s stories and history features.
