The SCSFA Mission

The South Carolina State Firefighters’ Association, founded in 1905 and headquartered in Columbia, SC, provides services such as education, training, benefits and representation to the fire departments of South Carolina.

The mission of the South Carolina State Firefighters’ Association is to serve our membership as the leader in advocacy, benefits, education and safety while acting as the steward of the Firemen’s Insurance and Inspection Fund.

How we accomplish our mission

  • Ensuring the continued strength and fiduciary health of the Firemen’s Insurance and Inspection Fund through sound financial advocacy, proper record keeping, and auditing of the process;
  • Securing the best benefits to our members in keeping whole their behavioral, physical, and financial well-being; and,
  • Fostering a collaborative working environment where the larger collective of our fire service wisdom and skills can come together to plan and shape the future of our profession through training, education, and advocacy.

Additional information about the SCSFA

We schedule conferences, seminars, workshops, and other training events for the firefighters of South Carolina. These training sessions are available to volunteer and paid firefighters alike, at no charge, or for a small registration fee, as members of the association.

Additionally, we host the S.C. Fire-Rescue Conference every year as a forum for debating and discussing issues relating to the fire and rescue services in South Carolina.

The association appoints committees to assess and respond to important issues such as emergency and disaster management, emergency medical services, and other ad-hoc committees as deemed necessary.
We provide to the members of the association, such as coverage for disability, life insurance, retirement, and one percent budget benefits.
