Thank you for visiting the North Spartanburg Fire District website. Located north of the City of Spartanburg, we protect and serve our community by providing fire, rescue, and emergency medical first responder services. On April 20, 1964, the State of South Carolina passed a resolution to create the North Spartanburg Area Fire Department. Approved by the voters in the area in June of 1964, the newly formed department held its first meeting on October 8, 1964, at Gilberts Service Station with nine members attending. Since that time, our fire district has expanded its coverage area to meet the citizens' needs and currently provides services to 38 square miles of Spartanburg County. Operating three stations, we have 30 full-time employees who staff two engines, one ladder truck, and one Battalion chief, who work on on a rotating 24/48 hour schedule. These firefighters are supported by the fire chief, two deputy chiefs, the fire marshal, volunteer firefighters, and a financial officer. The district is overseen by a seven-person board of commissioners, appointed by the governor, who serve four-year terms.
We provide many services to our community. Besides emergency response, we provide residential smoke alarm and Carbon monoxide alarm inspections/installs, car seat inspections, CPR training, and a host of other community risk reduction efforts. If we can assist you, please contact us on our non-emergency telephone number at 864-578-1616.
