Savannah Fire & Emergency Services (Georgia)
While most fire departments across the nation are reducing staff, Savannah Fire is increasing staff. Currently, 14 out of 21 Savannah Fire apparatus are staffed at all times with a minimum of four firefighters. The other apparatus are staffed with a minimum of three to four firefighters. Last week, the City Manager decided to comply with a recommendation by the National Fire Protection Agency to have all apparatus staffed with four firefighters at all times. This will mean an increase in the minimum staffing per day for Savannah Fire from 82 to 89. To achieve this, the department must hire a minimum of 27 additional firefighters. With current vacancies and several stations proposed to open in the future it means if you want a job, apply now!
Currently, there are 12 stations in planning. Some of these stations are double lung stations.
Currently we have 15 vacancies.
The next class will be the first quarter of next year. This class will be 25-30 people.
Feel free to ask any questions and we will answer them as soon as possible.
