preserves the peace, and strives to prevent crime disorder. We are guided by
the ordinances enacted by the Mayor and City Council, the laws of the state of
Georgia, and the Constitution of the United States of America.
We must strive to set a standard of excellence for others to
follow, both individually and collectively. In keeping with this goal, we have

The Pembroke Fire Department has been serving
Pembroke for more than a century and currently has an ISO (Insurance Service
Office) rating of 5/9. We have automatic mutual aid with the Bryan County Fire
Department which means when needed, both departments will assist each other
across the jurisdictional boundaries. Located on North College Street in
Pembroke, our fire station houses three engines, manned by one full time fire
chief and more than two dozen volunteer fire fighters. The members of the fire
department are trained and ready to assist the City of Pembroke’s citizens with
all types or emergencies. In 2013, we became equipped with The Jaws of Life
(Cutter and Spreaders).
If you are interested in volunteering,
scheduling a station tour, or a public educational event, please call our
non-emergency number at (912) 653-4400 and speak with Fire Chief, Peter Waters.
The Pembroke Fire Department is committed to your safety.
Health and Environmental
The Safety Health and Environmental Department
is responsible for creating a safe environment for our employees while adhering
to all local, state and federal safety and environmental requirements. We
insure the safety of our employees through training on the dangers of workplace
hazards and by performing safety inspections on our facilities and equipment.
Our public facilities are also held to these same standards to provide a safe
overall environment for our citizens.
