Society of the Maltese Cross
The Maltese cross has represented the fire service for over 500 years and brings to mind in every firefighter the traditions and values sacred and true to service to our fellow man. Firefighters across South Carolina and the world proudly display the Maltese cross on their uniforms to remember and to signify servants of similar purpose. 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.
