The Sandy Springs Fire Rescue Department has upgraded its automatic aid pact with Roswell, an effort both cities believe will help with emergency response.
Sandy Springs can post a fire engine at one of Roswell’s stations during weekdays under the agreement, which should provide better coverage of the panhandle area in the northern part of the city.
The deal also gives Sandy Springs crews the opportunity for training at the Roswell Alpharetta Public Safety Training Center.
The two cities have had a mutual aid deal since Sandy Springs became a city in 2005.
