Wildcat Community Fire Protection

(December 10, 2018)- Dawson County Emergency Services continues to provide fire and medical coverage to the Wildcat Community. The agency stands ready and is prepared to serve this community. In no way do the recent resignations of Station 8 volunteer support personnel members affect the ISO rating for this community, nor does it decrease the level of service provided. Measures have been put in place to ensure adequate service now and into the future.

Dawson County Emergency Services continues to work closely with Pickens County, and both departments demonstrated this commitment over the weekend during the winter weather event. Additionally, Dawson County officials are working together to ensure the continued safety of both residents and visitors.

“Over the past few weeks, there has been much said regarding the future of Station 8,” said Dawson County Manager David Headley. “I want to affirm with the residents of the Wildcat Community that Dawson County will honor its commitment to them by not abandoning the services outlined in our agreement.

“Steps are being taken to enhance the level of service, and we look forward to working alongside the residents of the Wildcat Community as well as Pickens County moving ahead.”
