Busy day today for #teamoconee. This morning members of our dive team joined Anderson Co, Abbeville Co & SC DNR on the search for a drowning victim on Lake Hartwell.
This evening Long Creek, Holly Springs, Westminster and Chetohla (Rabun, Ga) participated in a water shuttle exercise at the Long Creek Baptist Church. Following a couple of unforeseen obstacles, we were able to sustain 600 gallons per minute via a tanker shuttle in one of the most remote areas of our county. Thank you the Long Creek for hosting and especially Sawyer and Stanley for putting it together.
Our thoughts are with special family that is close to our team and going through a very difficult time tonight. Our prayers are with you and those responders who answered a call we all dread. ... See MoreSee Less
I am impressed. You guys were hustling
The men of Engine Company #1. Or at least a few of them. The south end volunteers from Oakway, South Union, Fair Play and Cross Roads have certainly had a long day after battling a house fire during and answering additional calls during the day. Thank you for your hard work and dedication to the community! ... See MoreSee Less

Volunteers are always needed. Not only to fight fires, but for emergency medical response, search & rescue or even to simply lend a hand around the station.

At 1110 am today, firefighters were alerted to a reported home fire in the 800 block of Wilderness Road in the Fair Play community. Crews arrived with minutes to smoke coming from the home. Team members did a great job to quickly bring the fire under control. The occupant was at home at the time of the fire and escaped uninjured. The cause of the fire has been ruled accidental. The Red Cross was requested to assist the 2 adults and one child living in the home.
Great job to the 25 personnel who operated on scene for just over 90 minutes. Team members responding included:
Fair Play Fire
South Union Fire
Cross Roads Fire

Great job to all involved!❓Why do we do Summer Nights on Short Street? ❓
For moments like these. The freedom of a digital-free summer evening where you run like a wild child through a sprinkler system set up by our heroes in red. 👩🏽🚒🚨🚒
So a child can meet their favorite super hero (or princess!) on a sidewalk and share with those around them the joy only a child can possess. 🧝🏻♀️🕷🕸
So a family can meet Walhalla’s men and women in uniform and understand what they encounter on a daily basis. 👮🏿♀️🚔🕊
Thursday’s are something special in Walhalla this summer. Thank you Oconee County Emergency Services, City of Walhalla Fire Department and Walhalla Police Department for all the fun!
We’ll take a break for Independence Eve (Tuesday July 3rd at the Walhalla Soccer Field) and be back July 12th for Night at the Museums. Hope to see you there! ... See MoreSee Less
