Keowee Fire Department Headquarters
On behalf of the Keowee Fire Commission, Staff, and Volunteers of the Keowee Fire Department, let me welcome you to our web page. The Keowee Fire Department is comprised of 39 highly capable and dedicated individuals who are honored to serve our district. We have faithfully served the 10,000 residents and 4,000 annual visitors of the district for over 25 years.
The Department is charged with the responsibility of providing professional and efficient fire suppression, emergency preparedness, emergency medical services, fire prevention and public education to the Keowee Fire Tax District. The goal is to provide the highest level of service in the most efficient manner possible; to constantly safeguard and preserve life and property against the elements of fire and disaster through effective preparation, training and education; and to respond to all emergencies in a safe yet swift manner with sufficient resources to address the situation.
Within this outstanding team, the fire department is a key member in providing community safety. We accept and embrace this challenge with vigor and commitment. As the world evolves and our community grows and matures, our mission has also evolved into one that is not simply confined to “traditional” fire services.
Once again, welcome to our web page and please contact us if you have any additional questions or suggestions on improving our services.
M. Brandon Shirley
Chief of the Department
