Savannah Fire Department's Arson Unit works 24/7 to conduct fire cause and origin examinations for our local community. When requested, the Unit also provides mutual assistance to surrounding jurisdictions , state, and federal authorities with their investigations.
The Unit's primary focus is criminal investigations. When incendiarism (arson) has been determined, officers collect and preserve criminal evidence for presentation and for prosecution.
