South Carolina State Association of Fire Chiefs

Welcome the S.C. State Association of Fire Chiefs website!!


It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the South Carolina State Association of Fire Chiefs website.  The mission of our association is to provide volunteer and career fire service managers, both public and private, throughout the State of South Carolina, with information, education, services and representation to advance their professionalism and capabilities.  It is my goal as President of this great association to bring quality training and education to our members.  The Executive Committee, and our committees will be working hard over the next year to ensure that we provide opportunities for our members to grow professional through strong educational opportunities and networking experiences.  As fire service leaders if we are not training and preparing to lead our departments, we are not doing the men and women of our department, and the citizens of our communities’ justice.  I want the South Carolina State Association of Fire Chiefs to be known as an association that provides benefits to its members that far exceed their expectations. 

If there is anything that we can do for you as an association, please do not hesitate to reach out to me at any time.  Thank you for taking the time to visiting our website.

Stay Safe!

Justin L. McLellan, President




Take Free Online Training from the Federal Highway Administration

As life returns to normal—including traffic, whether we like it or not—traffic crashes will also increase on our nation’s roadways. Along with this, expect to see an increase in struck-by fatalities of roadway responders.

The Federal Highway Administration is encouraging first responders to use this time to take free online training in traffic incident management. While hundreds of thousands of responders have been trained in recent years, there are still too many preventable deaths every year for the professionals who show up to help those in need. In 2020 alone, there were 46 stuck-by deaths.

The National TIM Responder Training’s self-paced, 4-hour class covers all the essentials, including notification and scene size-up, safe vehicle positioning, scene safety, command responsibilities, traffic management, special circumstances, and clearance and termination.

In 2020, less than 60,000 first responders took a class in traffic incident management. You can help by visiting:
