Fire Fee Discount Program

The City of Savannah assesses property owners a Fire Fee that is dedicated solely to funding the cost of providing fire protection services. The fee provides the resources necessary for Savannah Fire to deliver services to residents, businesses, institutional, and government facilities.

firekidA Fire Fee is a financing option that provides an equitable, stable, and dedicated revenue source for fire services.  In Georgia, fire fees are similar to those charged for water, sewer, or sanitation in that all these services are funded through user fees.

Discount Manual and Application Forms

In some cases, property owners take actions to reduce the risk of fire to their property. To recognize these actions, the City of Savannah has created a discount program which provides a discounted percentage of the fee for certain actions which have been recognized to reduce fire risk, such as the installation of fire protection devices or sprinkler systems within a property. The discount is only applicable to Savannah Fire approved activities/construction that are designed, implemented, and maintained in accordance with the Fire Fee Discount Manual and applicable National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and International Code Council code provisions, as amended.
