Sylvania and Screven County combine fire departments

Share This

SYLVANIA – Two fire departments combined in to one this summer, and it seems to be working. Fire crews in Sylvania and Screven County started training together back on July 1, when the city took over county fire service. Their merger combines paid firefighters and roughly 90 volunteers. Gary Weaver, chief of the newly formed Sylvania-Screven County Fire Department, said taxpayers in the city and county benefit from the move. “We can put more people on a fire at one time. It also expands the services that we can offer in the county. We can have crews go around to all our volunteer departments,” the chief said .
