Welcome to the Newton County Fire Service website. We hope you will find our site a valuable source of information.
The primary mission of the Newton County Fire Service is to provide a range of programs and training designed to protect the lives and property of the inhabitants of Newton County from the adverse effects of fire, sudden medical emergencies, or exposure to dangerous conditions created by either man or nature.
Established in the early 1960’s, thanks to the Covington-Newton County Civil Defense, in nearly 60 years we have evolved into a force of 138 career and part-time firefighters that protect the 279 square miles and population of almost 110,000 as well as the many visitors of Newton County.
Currently our highly skilled firefighters occupy 8 stations across Newton County, ready at all times to gear up and protect the community from fire or provide emergency medical services. N.C.F.S. and Covington Fire have a special training center that includes a 2 story “class A” burn building, pump testing and drafting pits, a classroom, breakroom with bathrooms and showers, and a driving course. This center is a very beneficial and an important part of our future firefighters training.
Everyone at Newton County Fire Service works diligently to serve the citizens and visitors of Newton County, Georgia by providing a multitude of services including fire suppression, emergency medical care, fire cause and investigation, public safety education, as well as inspection and plan review for code compliance.
September is National Preparedness Month! Here are some facts about fire to help you prepare in the unfortunate event of a fire. Remember smoke alarms and a home fire escape plan could be what saves you and/or your families lives!
