Conway, South Carolina – After conferring with the Department of Forestry, and due to the recent precipitation, Horry County Government has lifted an outdoor burning ban effective immediately for the unincorporated areas of Horry County. We remind our citizens that where the burn ban is not in place, we ask their consideration and due diligence when actively involved in open burning. Please consider burning after 4:00 PM, and consider not burning on extremely windy days.
Horry County Fire Rescue will continue to monitor conditions and may re-impose the ban at a later date if conditions deteriorate. Horry County Government has a policy allowing it to institute an outdoor burning ban whenever there's a statewide red flag alert or if weather conditions appear conducive to wildfires.
For more information, contact Horry County Fire Rescue at 843-915-5190.

CONWAY, SC – As the snow, ice, and cold weather continues in our community, many of the lakes and ponds in our area become frozen over. The ice on these bodies of water can be an attraction to children and adults, unfortunately, there is no such thing as safe ice in our community. Where a lake or pond may have a coat of ice, the ice is not strong enough to support body weight. We ask you to stress to your children, as well as those they play with, to please stay away from this ice to prevent a tragedy from occurring.
If someone does fall through the ice, we remind you of these safety tips:
If you would like additional fire or life safety information please contact Mark R. Nugent, Public Information Officer for Horry County Fire Rescue, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
