The City of Newnan Fire Department (NFD) was established in 1894. Our department provides Basic Life Support Emergency Medical Services, Fire Suppression, Fire Prevention, and Education, Extrication, Hazardous Materials Response, and Technical Rescue to the citizens of our community.
We currently employ 70 personnel. The department operates out of four stations to protect and serve over 45,000 residents. There are over 12,293 single-family residences and many large apartments and condominium complexes within the city limits. The city is also the home of many large department stores, restaurants, and retail outlets. There are also many major industrial plants located in the city.
The department consists of four stations:
- Station Number 1: 23 Jefferson Street

The Newnan-Coweta Public Safety Training Complex is located at 473 Greison Trail. At the training complex, fire personnel train in various areas, from basic firefighting techniques to advanced tactical rope rescue. The training complex consists of a live burn building, a training tower with an electrical simulator, and a defensive driver's course.
The City of Newnan Fire Department is part of the West Georgia Hazardous Material Team. The West Georgia Hazardous Material team was established in 1995 to assist other fire departments such as Bremen, Carroll County, City of Carrollton, Haralson County, Heard County, and Tallapoosa. In addition to the areas previously listed, the West Georgia Hazardous Material team in conjunction with the Georgia Mutual Aid Group or Federal Government may request assistance in the mitigation of incidents involving hazardous materials including fuels, chemicals, radiological materials, biological agents, and weapons of mass destruction.
The mission of the Newnan Fire Department is to have professionally trained, career firefighters who are committed to saving lives and property. Our goal is to minimize the loss and suffering of our community due to fire, accidents, and emergencies through public education, code enforcement, standards and training certification of personnel, and provide prompt response to fires, hazardous material incidents, and emergency medical calls with resources available.
The Newnan Fire Department will strive to achieve its goals in a cost-effective manner through training, careful planning, research, and evaluation of the needs of the community. Having the utmost regard for the safety of the members of this department, we will work to the best of our ability to limit injury, loss of life and property, and will do our best to protect our environment.
