Little Mountain Fire & Rescue is a non-profit organization that operates in the southeastern part of Newberry County, South Carolina. They offer fire suppression, first responder, and search and rescue services. Although Little Mountain Fire Department and Little Mountain Rescue are two separate organizations, they are both housed in the same building and work together as one during emergencies, fundraisers, and events. Most of their volunteers are members of both organizations.



Established in 1960, the Little Mountain Fire Department, also known as Station 6, is responsible for providing fire suppression services to the Little Mountain community and its surrounding areas. The department is entirely run by volunteers, with 37 members, 25 of whom are certified NFPA Firefighter 1 or 2. Additionally, many members have received advanced training in rope operations, wildland fire, hazmat, and pump operations. Station 6 is equipped with two Engines, a 3000-gallon tanker, a brush truck, a service truck, and a mobile cascade trailer.

Station 18 is equipped with an ambulance, a quick response rescue truck, a medium rescue, boat, UTV, and traffic control trailer.
