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.
