About Us

Welcome to Hickory Tavern Fire Department

Located in Laurens County, SC, Our Department was established in 1978 by five men who wanted to better our community by offering fire protection. These five men have set the stage of what we have become and we are forever grateful for their willingness to serve and protect such a wonderful community. These five men were, Buddy Swanson, Jim Black, Thomas Stevenson, Jimmy Lollis and Bud Rowland.

Today we have grown to over 32 highly trained personnel with 9 apparatus and 2 stations and district that covers over 53 square miles. We average around 400 calls a year that range from fire suppression, motor vehicle accidents, rescue operations and medical assistance to LCEMS. Our members constantly strive to offer the best protection no matter what the situation.

We are a Department which is very proud of our rich history and also proud of the direction in which we are heading. We are constantly updating our training and knowledge in the fire service to keep the people of "God's Country" and Laurens County safe.
