Welcome to the
Fire - Rescue Department
Featured Department News
The Peachtree City Fire - Rescue Department, as well as all other government entities in Fayette County, utilize a service called “First Call” to quickly distribute emergency or other important information to our citizens.
This system has proven essential when we need to notify a large number of residents in a very short period of time. We have used the system for missing children, criminal activity in a specific area, hazardous material incidents or weather situations.
When First Call is used, we record a voice message and then First Call makes simultaneous calls into the selected area. Calls are only made to phones included in the data base of phone numbers maintained by First Call. When a person or answering machine answers the call the message is automatically played. We keep the messages brief, providing only the necessary information. The messages are generally less than one minute long.
The system is limited to 'hard wired' phones numbers normally listed in the phone book. If you have an unlisted number or have only a cellular or VOIP internet phone you will not be in the database. It is also possible that if you have moved into Fayette County and your home phone number was transferred from another address you may not receive the message.
If you would like to have your number added to the First Call database so you are included in these emergency notifications please go to their website and fill out a form to add your information.
