The mission of the Anderson Fire Department is to reduce the frequency and severity of emergencies, whether they are natural or manmade, by aggressively responding to all fires, technical rescues, high priority medical emergencies, and hazardous material incidents within the city limits and provide mutual aid to surrounding jurisdictions.
The occupational safety and well being of the personnel at the AFD is of the utmost importance.
In order to fulfill our mission, these essential components must be in place: public fire safety education, fire code enforcement, arson investigation, and workplace safety. Personnel also provides technical rescue services to Anderson County and actively participate in the South Carolina Firefighter Mobilization Plan. The Anderson Fire Department pledges to be proactive in preparing for today, planning for tomorrow, and honoring the history and tradition of yesterday.
