Fire and Life Safety

The Goldsboro Fire Department is proactive in fire education and prevention efforts.  Our goal is to partner with local non-profits and community partners to make our city safer. 

Please see the attached flyers in preparing for natural disasters and information for what to do after  a fire. If you are need of assistance or more information, please contact our administrative office at 919-580-4262.

School Visits/School Inspections and Fire Drills

Schools are inspected every year and fire drills are performed periodically during the school year. Our firefighters are available through a scheduled appointment to visit schools, churches or for station tours to help teach children and adults the importance of fire safety. The Assistant Chief of Support Services can be reached at 919-580-4261 to schedule your appointment during business hours of Monday – Friday, 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. or he can be reached by email at esasser@goldsboronc.gov.

Smoke Alarm Program

Most fire fatalities are a direct result of not having a working smoke alarm in the home. As reported by the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the U.S. Fire Administration: More than 4,000 Americans die each year in fires and approximately 25,000 are injured. These numbers do not include emergency personnel. Most fire fatalities occur in the middle of the night when residents are asleep. Please change your battery at least once a year. The life you save may be your own. A good time to change your battery is when you change your clock for day light savings time. Please contact our Fire Marshal at 919-739-7411 if you have additional questions regarding our smoke alarm program.

Child Passenger Seat Program

To help accomplish the department purpose of saving lives, the Goldsboro Fire Department offers a Child Seat Program to help adults install their own child passenger seats properly.  The program also re-enforces the importance of seat belt law compliance.

  • WHERE:  Station 2 located at 1900 Royall Ave
  • WHEN: 1st & 3rd Wednesday of the month from 2:00 – 5:00 p.m.

After the Fire Program
