Firefighter Registration

The "South Carolina Firefighters Employment and Registration Act" requires a criminal records check prior to employment of a paid or volunteer firefighter. No later than 60 days after the start of his employment date as a paid or volunteer firefighter, each firefighter must be registered with the Office of the State Fire Marshal (OSFM) by his fire chief or other employer. The criminal background check must be conducted before registration.

To register a firefighter, please log in to the Fire Portal.
