City and County departments joined together to remember September 11th, 2001. Memorial service took place at the Rome/Floyd Firefighter Memorial Plaza, next to City Hall.
Construction on the new burn building has just completed. This state of the art burn building was paid for from the SPLOST tax. It will be extremely beneficial for training fire fighters in a modern facility. Training in this new burn building will allow the fire department to become more responsive and efficient using live fire during training exercises.
