The North Myrtle Beach Fire Department

The North Myrtle Beach Fire Department is a full-service fire and rescue department serving the city of North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Established in 1957, it is responsible for providing firefighting, emergency medical services, and other specialized rescue operations to the community.
The department’s mission is to protect lives, property, and the environment through prevention, education, preparedness, and response. They strive to deliver the highest level of professional service to the residents and visitors of North Myrtle Beach.
The department operates from five strategically located fire stations throughout the city. These stations are staffed by dedicated and highly trained firefighters who are ready to respond to emergencies 24/7.
In addition to fire suppression, the department also provides emergency medical services (EMS). Their firefighters are certified paramedics and emergency medical technicians (EMTs) who can provide advanced life support and transport patients to the nearest medical facility.
The department is well-equipped with modern firefighting apparatus, including fire engines, ladder trucks, rescue vehicles, and specialized equipment for various types of emergencies. They also have specialized teams, such as hazardous materials (HAZMAT) and water rescue, to handle specific situations.
Beyond emergency response, the Fire Department places great emphasis on fire prevention and public education. They conduct fire safety inspections, offer community programs, and educate residents about fire prevention techniques, including smoke detectors, escape plans, and general fire safety awareness.
