The South Carolina State Guard (SCSG) is looking for a few more South Carolinians to help with our nationally recognized Search and Rescue teams and administrative support.

SCSG traces its heritage to 1670 and the first colonial militia. Today, SCSG provides organized, trained and disciplined volunteer units in engineering, medical, legal law enforcement and search and rescue for immediate use in domestic emergencies in order to protect life and property from imminent danger. SCSG along with the National Guard, is part of the Military Department of South Carolina, reporting through the Adjutant General Bob Livingston to Governor Nikki Haley as Commander-in-Chief.

SCSG units provided more than 23,000 person-hours to the state during the October 2015 flooding. Guard members were instrumental in emergency repairs to the Columbia Canal, distributing emergency supplies and providing search and rescue/recovery services throughout the state.

Come join our elite Professionals serving South Carolina.
