Where We Started & Where We Are Now

Department History

The City of Greer Fire Department has been protecting citizens since 1914 when it was known as the Greer Volunteer Fire Company Number 1 and fought fires using buckets from a horse-drawn wagon filled with barrels of water. In 1919 the city purchased its first motorized fire engine, a 1919 Seagrave. Sam O. Mahaffey was hired to drive it and earned the honor of becoming the City's first full-time paid firefighter.

Our Department Today

Today, the City of Greer Fire Department has 57 full-time members expertly trained in fire prevention, firefighting, rescue, fire inspection, hazardous material response, and emergency medical response. Four stations (including the shared use station with Taylors Fire and Rescue on St. Mark Road), stocked with state-of-the-art equipment allows the department to cover approximately 25 square miles and respond to more than 4,500 calls annually. The Department, which carries an ISO Class 1 rating, has a dedicated group of firefighters who undergo regular training. 

Looking Forward

Promoting fire prevention and safety within the community is an important part of the Department's mission. Educational programs reach more than 6,000 residents every year - from school children who tour the stations to senior citizens who benefit from smoke detector installation. The Department is also helping to train the next generation of firefighters through its Explorer Program, which invites young people to ride trucks and attend training to learn more about the Department and its duties.
