Welcome from the Chief
WELCOME to the St. George Fire Protection District website.
 
The St. George Fire Department provides fire prevention and protection services as well as medical first response for most of the area south and east of Baton Rouge, Louisiana's city limits.  We are a career fire department made up of dedicated, highly trained fire service professionals.  St. George maintains a Class 2 Fire Rating.  In 2010 we responded to slightly over 6,900 emergency dispatches. By 2015 that number has grown to over 8,425.
 
An important part of our Department's culture and history is that we want to be an active community partner, not just an emergency response agency.  We pursue this goal through a variety of efforts ranging from our fire prevention and fire safety education programs to our hosting groups of all ages for station tours.  Any information we can provide or opportunity for interaction with the public we can create furthers that goal. 
 
This website is an important part of that effort.  Please browse its pages, pick up some information about fire and home safety, and learn more about us.  We hope our commitment to serving the public shows.
