Elgin Fire & Rescue


Elgin Fire & Rescue 114 Tram Road Lancaster, South Carolina

Due to recent actions by the governor with the current state of emergency, schools being closed and to be compliant with CDC guidelines the BBQ for this March has been canceled. We feel this is the best way to protect the health of our many senior volunteers and community. We look forward to seeing you at our next BBQ November 13th and 14th. Thank you for your understanding.
