Fire Chief

Charleston Fire Department

Location: Charleston, SC

The Charleston Fire Department is seeking a Fire Chief. Charleston is a historical city dedicated to preserving its cultural and structural heritage. This makes fire suppression a unique challenge for the City, where construction is close, streets are narrow, and the preservation of life and property is paramount. Charleston's Fire Chief will work closely with the Fire Marshal to ensure both Divisions respect this history. The Fire Department consists of fire companies located throughout the peninsular City and incorporated areas of West Ashley, James Island, John's Island, and Daniel Island/Cainhoy. The Fire Department operates 16 fire engine companies and four ladder companies, and provides service to citizens across a service area totaling approximately 109 square miles. The Charleston Fire Department is an internationally accredited agency and an ISO Class I Department. For additional information, please see the following documents:
