Welcome to our page! Our department is an arm of the overall public safety matrix of Butts County, providing the functions of Ambulance/EMS, Fire and Fire Marshal Services, as well as the local Office of Emergency Management.
The Department provides Fire and EMS coverage through a total matrix of six stations throughout the County, including one EMS station, two Fire stations and three Fire/EMS combo stations. As of its opening in 2015, Fire Headquarters for the Department is located at the Indian Springs Fire Station on Highway 42 South of Jackson.
For the first time ever, our department went over 5,000 calls in 2015 and is anticipated to handle more in 2016. Our personnel are cross trained and certified as both firefighters and at least one level of medical response, including First Responder, EMT or Paramedic level. Since the first full time County firefighter was hired in 1984, the department has grown from one employee to a total of 43. This growth in fire services over the past thirty years has resulted in a tremendous drop in fire insurance ratings, the savings of which to the individual homeowner each year far outweighing the total cost of the fire department to the taxpayer.
Our goal as a department is to provide the citizens of Butts County with services that protect life, property and our environment. Whether our service is provided as a medical EMS call, a fire related call or in response to a natural or manmade disaster, we strive to serve with professionalism and compassion in all that we do. I am very proud of the quality men and women that made up this department, who answered the call to service and who watch over our citizens night and day. If we can be of help to you, please let us know. In addition to emergency response, we also provide a number of services towards public education, fire safety, CPR and much more. Let me know how we can be of service to you.
