OLD FORT 

FIRE & RESCUE 

 
The Old Fort Fire Department is a combination paid/volunteer fire department 
 
that provides fire suppression and first responder services to an 
 
estimated 80 square mile area in Dorchester County. 
 
We currently have six stations strategically located within our district 
 
that  are manned 24/7 to best serve the residents and visitors of our area. 
 
We also respond automatic aid for other fire departments in Dorchester County 
 
for reported fires and fire alarms. 
 
Established in 1971, the department has transformed 
 
into a full service fire and rescue agency.
