Emergency Services

HART

costs down and save millions

of dollars to the county’s citi-

zens.

The department’s Train-

ing Division keeps addition-

al training classes on the

calendars to include: NPQ

Firefighter 1 & 2, Hazardous

Materials Awareness and Op-

erations, RIT, ICS, Rescue/

Extrication, Firefighter Wa-

ter Survival, Incident Safety

Officer, Live Fire Evolutions

and Officer training to men-

tion a few. The extensive

training is required by ISO.

The Department has also

taken a proactive status this

year by adopting the state’s

firefighter draft regulations.

By doing so, we want to dem-

onstrate that our firefighters

are in compliance before it

becomes mandatory.

The Department is always

seeking dedicated individu-

als who want to volunteer

with the department. If you

have the time and determi-

nation to undergo the train-

ing to become a basic fire-

fighter, the Hart County Fire

Department would like to ex-

tend an invitation for you to

apply to become part of our

extended family.

The Hart County Fire De-

partment serves the unincor-

porated areas of Hart County

and the city of Bowersville.

The department is a com-

bination department with

three full-time employees

and 125 volunteer on call

firefighters. The depart-

ment presently has nine sta-

tions located throughout the

county and plans to add an

additional station within the

next couple of years to better

serve it’s citizens.

The ISO changed the way

they determine the distance

to a fire

station.It

used to be

five miles as the “crow flies,”

but by GPS, it is now road

miles. By adding additional

stations the department can

get that corrected.

The

department

has

also put in place coopera-

tive agreements with Elbert

County so they can cover our

areas outside the five miles

and Hart can cover theirs

without having to build an

additional station.

As of July 1, 2015, the Hart

County Fire Department has

an ISO Protection of four

utilizing fire hydrants and

tanker water shuttles. This

will cut the ISO 9 insurance
