Chief's Message

The South Montgomery County Fire Department was founded in 1974, and a lot has changed over the past 47 years.

Just in the last 12 years, we’ve grown substantially to meet the needs of our rapidly growing community. In 2009, our department experienced a rebirth when the Emergency Services District (ESD) Board moved from contracted services to an ESD-operated fire department — taking us from a totally volunteer fire department to a totally career ESD.
