2018 brought a welcome break to Fayette County from any high-impact events requiring a disaster declaration, state, or federal aid, as had occurred in 2016 or 2017 when the county experienced damages from flooding and Hurricane Irma. The department continues to promote safety with public education and preparedness to all age groups. The department is dedicated to the Protection of Life, Property and the Environment. Continued support is appreciated to meet the various needs of our community.
Fire Prevention continues to place an emphasis on early detection of fires and has pushed the smoke detector program for the past few years in several communities within the county.
