The Piedmont Park Fire District is a Special Purpose District that was formed in 1963. The District has three elected officials that serve on the Commission Board. Our fire personnel respond to Medical Emergencies, Fire Calls, HAZMAT, and Technical Rescue calls within our jurisdiction and the jurisdictions around us through automatic aid. Piedmont Park Fire District is also a part of the Greenville County Rapid Intervention Team (R.I.T.) agreement that allows for neighboring jurisdictions to request a full Engine Company to respond for the sole purpose of rescuing firefighters who have become lost, injured, or trapped inside a hazardous area (ex. house fire).
Piedmont Park Fire District is a career department. Calls for service are handled by our full time staff that operates out of two fire stations. The full time personnel work a 24/48 hour shift schedule. Currently our full time staff respond to calls for service with the following staffing:
Headquarters: (7 personnel / Minimum Staffing of 6)
Command Vehicle: On duty Captain (Lieutenant in the absence of the Captain)
Rescue / Medical Company: (Heavy Rescue truck or Quick Response Vehicle (QRV) depending on response needed)
Station 2: (3 personnel)
Greenville County ERT Heavy Rescue (Requests in Northern Greenville County for specialized technical rescue)
The Piedmont Park Fire Department responds to automatic aid responses with several surrounding jurisdictions. In return, the Piedmont Park Fire District staff is supplemented by automatic aid responses from the Taylors Fire District, Parker District Fire Department, North Greenville Fire Department, Lake Cunningham Fire Department, and the Duncan Chapel Fire District. Based on the call location automatic aid companies respond to increase overall staffing to create a safer environment for the citizens of the district and the fire personnel who protect it.
