Our vision statement is an idealized picture of our organization, it defines who we are, and where we are going. This founding principle provides the mechanism through which the Beaufort Fire Department carries out its quest to be the best. Our mission statement is our commitment to provide a safe community for all citizens. Our mission is our day-to-day work. The strength and well being of a community are affected by the character and effectiveness of its firefighters as well as all City employees. Our core values are principals upon which we base our department’s policies. They define who we are and how we do business, and are incorporated in everything we do.
