Fire Station #1
Fire Station 1 is located at 121 Tom Hall Street in the heart of downtown Fort Mill. This station was dedicated in November of 1994. This station provided a significant improvement in fire protection to the all-volunteer department when it was built. Today, Station 1 houses the department’s ladder trucks, medial response unit, on-duty Battalion Chief, and special response units. The department’s Administrative Assistant, Deputy Fire Chief and Fire Chief operate from this station as well.
Fire Station #2
Fort Mill Fire Department Station #2 is the latest addition to the Town’s emergency response team and celebrated its Grand Opening in September 2020. Located at 1245 Fort Mill Parkway across from Catawba Ridge High School, the new station boasts 10,024 square feet of space, features two apparatus bays and can house up to eight firefighters.
During the Grand Opening, Mayor Guynn Savage praised the new station for its ability to boost the town’s emergency response coverage and improve the ISO (Insurance Services Office) rating for town residents in the surrounding area. She also highlighted how much of the cost for the new station was paid by impact fees from new construction, a sign of how “growth pays for growth.”
Fire Department Chief Chipper Wilkerson said the new station includes more bay space to house reserve apparatus and specialty equipment, increased office space for the Fire Marshal’s office, space to allow for a backup town Emergency Operations Center in the event Town Hall is affected by a disaster, and the addition of a Fort Mill Police Department substation. The new station can also house a total of eight firefighters, is an ADA Compliant Facility, includes a Physical Fitness Room and Equipment, and features both a Turnout Gear Washing Machine and Decontamination Room for equipment/firefighters.
