Beaufort/ Port Royal Fire Department


Welcome to the City of Beaufort/Town of Port Royal Fire Department! I am pleased to welcome you to our community and to your Fire Department.

The Fire Department is an ISO Class 1 fire suppression service (read more about those ratings here) that operates out of four fire stations, and provides a variety of emergency services. We are licensed by the S.C. Department of Health & Environmental Control as an intermediate non-transport medical service, emergency rescue, hazard mitigation, and fire code enforcement department. We serve both the City of Beaufort and the Town of Port Royal.

Your Fire Department also offers several public education and training events. We educate schoolchildren, community groups, neighborhood organizations, and businesses annually with programs that include fire safety/prevention, personal safety, first aid/CPR, and proper car seat installation. Call 843-525-7055 to schedule your program today!

If I can be of any assistance, please feel free to stop by my office at 135 Ribaut Road or call 843-525-7055.
