Tallulah Falls Fire & Rescue is a completely volunteer fire department. The TFFD serves all of Tallulah Falls, assists neighboring Rabun and Habersham counties, is First Due to any medical or rescue incidents in Tallulah Gorge State Park, and enjoys a strong working relationship with both Rabun and Habersham county Fire and Rescue Services. While our primary function is for Fire Prevention and Suppression, we are also certified and trained in High Angle Rescue and Emergency Medical Response. We house two Pumper apparatus and one Service Truck equipped with our High Angle Rescue gear.

Due to the ongoing efforts of our Fire Department personnel, homeowners and businesses benefit from an ISO rating of 4 / 4X, which helps keep insurance premium costs down. To qualify for the 4 rating, your residence must be within 1000 feet of a qualified hydrant. By being all volunteer, we also help our community by offsetting the need for elevated property taxes. In fact, the Town of Tallulah Falls has boasted no tax increases in more than sixteen years, which is just one more reason so many people want to live and do business in our town. We are always looking for volunteers to assist an various capacities. You don’t have to be certified in interior attack to be a valuable asset to our department and to our town.
