Safety Tips

Preventing Fires

There is no doubt that the best way to fight a fire is to prevent it from ever starting! This is why our department spends as much time as it does on public education about fire safety in schools, at work, and in homes. There are a number of services that we offer to the citizens within our district to help them improve the safety of their living and working environments.

You can find a list of some of our activities and services below. If you are interested in taking advantage of any of these services, please take a moment to check out our community safety services page or give us a call at 919-918-7347. You can also email the Fire-Rescue Department for more information!
