As a member of the SCTPBA, you support our mission and goals and are key to our success as an all-volunteer association. Your dues help us ensure that we have sufficient equipment in good working order and necessary first aid supplies. You donate your time and personal vehicles and equipment to help with prescribed burns and provide essential personnel. Without you and your commitment to our mission, we would not exist.
