The Lowndes County Fire Rescue Fire Prevention Division directs all fire prevention activities within the unincorporated area in the county. It handles the more technical fire prevention problems, conducts inspections on new and existing businesses, maintains appropriate records, grants permits, investigates the causes of fires, and conducts fire prevention and life safety education programs. All commercial or multiple-dwelling buildings are inspected at regular intervals, and orders are issued for the correction of violations of fire laws. If necessary, court action is taken to compel compliance.
The Fire Prevention Division is also charged with the responsibility of providing fire prevention and life safety education to the general public. We can provide a wide range of fire prevention and public safety education ranging from programs for elementary school age children to fire extinguisher training for small groups. If you are interested in scheduling a presentation for your organization, contact Fire Marshal Lloyd Green or Captain Terry Parsons at 229-671-2730. If possible, try to call at least 1 week in advance.
