Letter from the Chief:
I would like to welcome you to the website of the Corinth-Shiloh Fire Department. We are nestled between the cities of Seneca and Clemson, Oconee and Pickens Counties respectively, and Lakes Hartwell and Keowee. We serve a diverse piece of Oconee County. Although unincorporated, we have one of the highest population densities outside the areas covered by the municipal departments. We provide fire protection for the Newry mill community, Shiloh Rd, various subdivisions, the county regional airport, as well as the U.S. Highway 123 corridor between Clemson and Seneca.
We have made major strides in recruitment and retention. We have added 20 new members this year, bringing the roster to over thirty members. 22 members are at least Emergency Medical Responders, which means we can respond to medical as well as fire related emergencies. We have 10 in training as you read this to become interior certified firefighters.
I could not be prouder of the group that I was elected to be in command of. your neighbors, the members of this fine department, respond with professionalism and a level of training that most volunteer fire departments only dream of. We will continue to improve and progress in these tough economic times. We are still planning on a substation in the Shiloh community, replacing/consolidating vehicles to be leaner, and procuring an aerial ladder truck to increase our service to the community. We volunteer to assist the community we live in and do everything in a power to provide for a safe place to live.
The department is always accepting applications for membership. We provide opportunities for all interests: interior firefighting and exterior, medical/rescue, driver/operator, fire protection, and administrative. If interested please find the forms on this
Thank you for supporting the Corinth-Shiloh Fire Department.
