As Goldsboro and the surrounding communities continue to grow, a need was identified to increase level of care. The Goldsboro Fire Department has for years provided fire, EMS, and rescue services to the Goldsboro community. Through the years the fire department has expanded on services provided by means of equipment and training.
The Fire Department not only provides fire protection, we also provide vehicle extrication, trench rescue, confined space rescue, and water rescue. We are proud to announce that as of September 2021, we are now certified by the North Carolina Rescue Association. The certification is part of the process of becoming a Deployable Type III water rescue team. A lot of hard work and training from the 20 member team has happened over the last year to achieve this goal.
