A Safer Charleston

Your Charleston Fire Department strives to build a safer Charleston through fire & life safety education.  The information below and in the left margin is provided to assist you on common topic areas, hazards, and educating those around you to reduce hazards in our community.  

Learn the Sounds of Fire Safety!
