The City is fortunate that only two percent of all calls for service of the Sandy Springs Fire Department involve active fires.  When fires do occur, our department is ready!  Our personnel log more than 20,000 hours of Fire and EMS training per year.  In 2019, the department unveiled a new fleet of fire trucks including one Tower ladder, two ladder trucks, two engines, and one squad vehicle. The City has strong ties and active automatic aid agreements with the cities of Atlanta and Roswell as well as a mutual aid agreement Cobb County.
