The Grovetown Department of Public Safety Fire Rescue Division provides fire protection, vehicle extrication, rescue, medical first response, and fire safety education to the citizens of Grovetown.  We also provide these services in the unincorporated area just south of the city limits, under contract with Columbia County along with mutual and automatic aid to surrounding fire departments.

We are a Georgia Firefighter Standards and Training compliant fire agency having achieved a Class 3 Insurance Rating.  This rating assists our citizens of the best possible benefits off of their insurance premiums as homeowners along with lower premiums for commercial property. The department maintains two fire stations consisting of three engines, one ladder truck, two rescue units, and a wildland truck.

The Fire Suppression Division also operates a Fire Safety Education Program through the use of our Fire Safety House. This unique hands-on experience gives children and their parents' actions to take should a fire occur at home. This free education program has served as a key tool in providing the E.D.I.T.H. Drill to over 2,500 children every year.

The Grovetown Department of Public Safety also serves the citizens of the City of Grovetown providing Law Enforcement and Community Policing Services. Grovetown Department of Public Safety has a detention facility on site. We offer many services to the community such as concentrated patrols, house watches when residents are away from home, Citizens on Patrol, Neighborhood Watch Programs, "National Night Out", K-9 Unit, and many educational /protection information to assist our citizens in the fight against crime.

The goal of the Grovetown Department of Public Safety is to provide the best law enforcement, fire protection and rescue services available. The majority of our fire personnel are trained as Paramedics or Emergency Medical Technicians, or First Responders.  We are proud to serve our community and citizens of Columbia County.
