Future Plans

We have developed a long range plan that helps us to identify areas for new Fire Stations, and a improvement plan to help up upgrade and maintain our fire equipment. The VFD needs volunteers in order to meet the needs our communities.

Emergency Vehicles

By Georgia law, when an emergency vehicle that is displaying emergency lights and sirens is approaching, you must pull to the right and, if possible, stop. This allows the vehicle adequate clear lanes to safely and quickly continue its response by passing on the left.

Please yield to all emergency response vehicles (fire department, law enforcement, EMS, etc.) so that they can arrive at the emergency quickly and render aid as soon as possible.
