Our mission is to serve our membership as the leader in advocacy, benefits, education and safety while acting as the steward of the Firemen’s Insurance and Inspection Fund.
The Association appoints committees to assess and respond to important issues such as emergency and disaster management, emergency medical services, and other ad-hoc committees as deemed necessary.
Society of the Maltese Cross
The establishment of the Society of the Maltese cross by the South Carolina State Firefighters’ Association in 2010 seeks to recognize those individuals of the SC General Assembly that share in those values and have supported South Carolina Firefighters in meeting those goals.
To ensure member participation and full transparency, the Association seeks to share as much financial information as is possible about the operation of your Association. As such, we offer the latest approved budgets and Association Audit.
