Welcome to the Sumter Fire Department!

The Desire to Serve. The Ability to Perform. The Courage to Act.

The Sumter Fire Department is highly trained and equipped to respond to and mitigate any emergency situation encountered to protect life and property. As an organization, our mission is to provide the highest possible level of service to everyone who lives in, works in, or visits Sumter. We will accomplish our mission through a proactive approach to fire protection and rescue services, ongoing training, community education programs, procurement of quality equipment, and a dedicated and professional staff.

The Sumter Fire Department is one of the most challenging and interesting places to work or volunteer. The fire service is an exciting way of life and very rewarding.  We encourage you to come down and see what we are all about.

Thank you for visiting our department on line. 

Sincerely,   
Karl Ford
