The Sandy Springs Fire Department takes pride in its commitment to the community – a commitment that extends beyond responding to fires and medical calls for service. They are constantly striving to offer programs and opportunities allowing the staff to share fire prevention strategies, health and safety awareness and they love to celebrate children’s birthdays, too!
Please note during COVID, many of these programs have been suspended. If you have a specific question or request, please contact: Community Affairs Officer William Pildner 770-296-8200.
