The Swan Quarter Volunteer Fire Department was established in 1971 by a group of citizens who were concerned with providing an organized fire safety presence for the community.

Since that time, our area of operation has expanded, as has the level of services we provide. Today we operate with twenty-one unpaid volunteers who provide not only fire incident response, but also first-responder services for medical emergencies.

The Department also works with the Hyde County Schools to provide fire safety awareness to the youth of the community. We participate in other Hyde County community events such as parades.

We are a recognized nonprofit entity by the Internal Revenue Service and donations to the Swan Quarter Volunteer Fire Department are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by Law.
