Welcome to the Town of Kingstree, SC!
Kingstree is a small town nestled under majestic oaks in eastern South Carolina. We are perfectly situated approximately 75 miles from Charleston, Columbia, and Myrtle Beach. Our town is surrounded by hunting lands with an abundance of deer, turkey, ducks, and other wildlife. We also have the Black River running through our community for fishing and water fun. This makes Kingstree a Sportsman’s Paradise!
The Kingstree Depot is now available for your parties, meetings, and receptions! Click here for more information.
This year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign, “Don’t Wait – Check the Date! Replace Smoke Alarms Every 10 Years,” represents the final year of A three-year effort to educate the public about basic but essential elements of smoke alarm safety.
Why focus on smoke alarms three years in a row? Because NFPA’s survey data shows that the public has many misconceptions about smoke alarms, which may put them at increased risk in the event of a home fire. For example, only a small percentage of people know how old their smoke alarms are, or how often they need to be replaced.
As a result of those and related findings, we’re addressing smoke alarm replacement this year with a focus on these key messages:
• Smoke alarms should be replaced every 10 years.
• Make sure you know how old all the smoke alarms are in your home.
• To find out how old a smoke alarm is, look at the date of manufacture on the back of the alarm; the alarm should be replaced 10 years from that date.
The Town values your opinion. Please let us know if you have any comments or suggestions to make our website better.
