Our Mission

The mission of Putnam County Fire Rescue is to protect all citizens from injury and loss by any direct or indirect threats to life and property by providing fire suppression, rescue operations, fire prevention education and emergency medical first-responder services.  Putnam County Fire Rescue is committed to partnering with the community, serving as role-models, and utilizing its resources effectively and efficiently to provide exemplary service to the residents, businesses and visitors of Putnam County.  

  • Prevent Harm
  • Survive
  • Be Nice





This is a call to action for the USFA, fire and life safety partner organizations and the American public. We must join together to help reduce the number of home fires, and the resulting deaths, injuries and loss of property. We rely on the fire service to fight fires once they occur; however, the prevention of fires is up to all of us… Fire Is Everyone’s Fight™.


Volunteer Opportunities are Available!

At Putnam County Fire Rescue, we strive to deliver comprehensive emergency services to the residents and visitors of Putnam County.  If you are interested in joining us, please contact us at 706.485.0469.
