It is with a heavy heart that we share the news of the passing of Chief J. Carrol Busbee, Sr. earlier today. Chief Busbee served as the Aiken Fire Chief from February 1964-July 1970 when he was named the first Director of the Aiken Department of Public Safety. Chief Busbee led the Department until his retirement in January 1999. Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Busbee family.
