The Fire Department's current ISO Rating is 3/3X:
ISO’s classification ratings are used by many insurance companies as part of the basis for setting premiums for policies covering personal and commercial property. An improvement in the Public Protection Classification (PPC) often means lower premiums for property owners.
The career employees work 24-hour shifts. However, the crews are not always at the fire stations due to work assignments, training, or emergency calls. Please use a cell phone to dial 911.
770-461-4548 is the non-emergency phone number that can be used during normal business hours (Monday through Friday, 8 am to 5 pm). This number is used for general requests for information. Occasionally, we will receive phone calls on our non-emergency number for situations that require our assistance, but the caller is reluctant to call 911 and report it as an emergency.
If you encounter a situation that concerns you enough to contact the fire department, please go ahead and call 911 instead of the non-emergency fire department number. This will ensure the proper personnel, apparatus, and equipment are dispatched to your location.
We welcome our citizens to drop by the fire station for a visit. We are happy to conduct a tour of the station and apparatus, as well as answer any questions. Scheduling of such visits are not required but recommended.
We do ask that groups desiring to participate in a tour call ahead and schedule this through the Fire Marshal’s office at 770-719-4054. This will ensure that we have personnel available to receive the group and conduct a quality tour.
You may contact the Fire Marshal’s office at 770-461-4548 to request a copy of an incident report. An open records request form will need to be complete. There is a $4 charge for each report.
The City of Fayetteville does not accept employment applications unless a job opening exists. These openings are advertised in the local papers, as well as our website's Job Board page.
To apply for an open position, you must complete and submit an application form. General requirements for entry-level positions give preference to individuals with firefighting experience and State of Georgia emergency medical technician certification.
Outdoor burning is prohibited statewide between May 1 and September 30.
Occasionally someone may call and complain about a controlled burn. A fire apparatus will respond to investigate any complaints. We may or may not ask the homeowner to extinguish the fire, depending on the situation we discover.
If you live within the City limits, just call the Fire Department at 770-461-4548 and notify us that you intend on burning. We do not issue permits, but request notification to ensure that we are able to review the rules for outdoor controlled burning. We will occasionally deny a request to conduct a controlled burn, based on prevailing weather conditions. Commercial burn permits, for projects such as land clearing, must be obtained through the Fire Marshal’s office.
You may obtain a burn permit from Fayette County by calling 770-305-5468.
