An Old Fort Fire Department

We'll be glad to explain it to you.
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 45 square mile area in Dorchester County.
We currently have three 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.
For Our Community
- We recognize that the community is the reason for our presence.
- We value the faith and trust of the community, and continually work to deserve that confidence through our attitude, conduct and accomplishments.
- Lives are more important than property.
- The safety of the public of paramount importance, followed closely by the safety of our members.
- All members of the public are entitled to our best efforts.
