Colleton County Fire-Rescue
Colleton County Fire-Rescue continues to monitor the track and intensity of Hurricane Irma. We
continue to make our equipment and apparatus fully ready for the storm.
We are also continually planning for increases in staffing if necessary.
In the event that Governor McMaster orders an evacuation, it is important
that Colleton County citizens know the zone in which their homes are
You can find the zone for your house at the following URL:
Remember: If an evacuation order is given, it is likely that emergency services will be moved from those areas. If you do not comply with the evacuation order, you will have very limited or perhaps no access to fire, police, and emergency medical services for an extended period of time. It is quite literally a matter of life and death that you comply with directions given by local officials and evacuation orders.
