About the Department


St. Andrews Fire Department (SAFD) provides fire, rescue, and first responder services to the unincorporated area of West Ashley. The operational staff is divided into a ladder company, a rescue company, three engine companies, and a quick response vehicle (QRV) operating out of four fire stations. Each company is staffed with a minimum of three members, except the QRV which is staffed with two, on a daily basis under the direction of a Battalion Chief. Through a commitment of automatic aid, we assist the fire departments of North Charleston, St. John’s, James Island, and City of Charleston in meeting their missions on a daily basis
