The mission of the Pike County Fire Department is to protect lives and property from the adverse effects of fire, medical emergencies, and exposures to any dangerous conditions created by either nature or man.

The Pike County Fire Department operates seven strategically placed fire stations covering the unincorporated areas of Hollonville, Lifsey Springs and Second District as well as the cities of Concord, Molena, Williamson and Zebulon. Response apparatus includes 11 engines, four tankers, three brush trucks, one ladder truck and three squad units. All engines and squads are equipped to provide Basic Life Support and extrication. Personnel are trained in-house via certified instructors on staff with the department as well as through the Georgia Fire Academy and the Georgia Emergency Management Agency. Training includes but is not limited to basic firefighting, extrication and basic first aid.
The prevention of fire before it starts is of utmost importance in effectively protecting life and property. Public education, annual inspections of businesses and ensuring strict code compliance on existing and newly constructed buildings are all methods utilized to reduce fire incidents. Pike County Fire Department personnel educate school children annually in Fire Safety and Prevention. In 2003, we received a grant from the United States Fire Administration for Fire Prevention and acquired our Fire Safety House.
The Pike County Fire Department has mutual aid agreements with Spalding, Lamar and Meriwether counties as well as Thurston and Northside Fire Departments in Upson County. This is enhanced through mutual aid with the Georgia Mutual Aid Group (GMAG) which is comprised of departments in and around metro Atlanta. In addition, the Georgia Search and Rescue (GSAR) organization can assist with specialized situations that we may encounter from rescue to hazardous material situations.
