The Savanna Fire Department consists of one full time paid firefighter and one paid Fire Chief with thirty-two paid-per-call firefighters. These Firefighters are dedicated to the service of the City of Savanna and the Fire Department District that we serve.

We currently have two Engine Pumpers, two Tankers, two Brush Rigs, one Rescue rig, one Aerial Truck and one Personnel Van and two rescue boats. All this equipment was supplied by either the volunteers through fund raisers such as the annual Firemen's Dance and Pancake breakfasts and equipment also supplied by the City of Savanna and Fire District.

Currently we serve a population of 3,062 residences in the City of Savanna. Our fire district also encompasses part of the Mississippi River and a section of county which is mostly rural.
