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.
