On behalf of President Keith Minick and the Executive Board of the South Carolina State Firefighters’ Association, we invite you to the 2020 Virtual Fire-Rescue, June 11-13, 2020.

Unfortunately, the uncertainties of COVID-19 led us to the decision to cancel our in-person SC Fire-Rescue 2020 in Columbia, S.C., but with the today’s technology we are able to provide you, our members and guests with the Association’s first Virtual Fire-Rescue.  

Registration is open and Free! An email will be sent to all registrants before each day of the conference with connection information. 

With the cancelation of Fire-Rescue 2020, the Foundation will not be able to host events that helps our firefighters throughout the year. Please consider a donation today.
