Letter from the Chief
The City of Brunswick’s Fire Department provides fire prevention services and integrated emergency response to any situation that threatens the life, safety, or well-being of the people and property of Brunswick. Under the leadership of Chief Randy Mobley, the department serves with duty, honor and courage. Their commitment and compassion extends to areas including, but not limited to, fire prevention, fire suppression, hazard mitigation, and training.
The City of Brunswick is approximately twenty-five square miles and is protected by two fire stations and 41 firefighting personnel. A three-platoon system is utilized with firefighters working twenty-four hour shifts, followed by forty-eight hours off duty.
ln 2017, the Brunswick Fire Department responded to 3,921 emergency alarms. The department is considered a proactive department with Fire Prevention being its key role within the community. Pre-Fire Planning and Fire Inspections are a daily routine. The City of Brunswick currently holds a Class 1 Fire Protection Rating from the Insurance Services Office (ISO). The Brunswick Fire Department is the smallest Class 1 rated fire department in the history of Georgia. The Insurance Services Office collects information on a community's public fire protection and analyzes the data using a Fire Suppression Rating Schedule (FSRS). They then assign a Public Protection Classification from 1 to 10. Class 1 generally represents superior property fire protection, and Class 10 indicates that the area's fire-suppression program doesn't meet ISO's minimum criteria.

What is ISO?
The Insurance Services Office (ISO) collects information on a community's public fire protection and analyzes the data using a Fire Suppression Rating Schedule (FSRS). They then assign a Public Protection Classification from 1 to 10. Class 1 generally represents superior property fire protection, and Class 10 indicates that the area's fire-suppression program doesn't meet ISO's minimum criteria. Many insurers of homes and business properties reference ISO ratings when calculating premiums. As a result, communities with a better ISO rating may pay less for fire insurance than others.
The Brunswick Fire Department’s number one goal is life safety. We believe that the smoke alarm is one of the greatest tools to help prevent injuries and fatalities from fires. We truly believe that smoke alarms help save lives; that’s why our “Knock4Life” program allows residents in the City of Brunswick to have smoke alarms installed in their homes at no cost. If your home is not equipped with a smoke alarm, contact us today at 912-267-5546.
The Brunswick Fire Department currently holds a Class I ISO rating. In order to be prepared for any and all emergencies within the City of Brunswick, our firefighters receive training on a daily basis. The Brunswick Fire Department’s aluminum can fund provides additional resources that allow us to upgrade, repair, and maintain our training facility. Training is very important to us, and it ensures that we are ready for emergencies. All donations assist us greatly in keeping our firefighters prepared. Donations can be placed inside of the large red bins outside of the fire stations located at 1201 Gloucester Street and 3129 4th Street. Thank you for your support!
