Notice of Fees: Fire Inspections

Effective January 1. 2024, Goldsboro Fire Department will start charging for fire inspections. This will be a new charge for Goldsboro businesses; however, this is not a new concept as this is standard practice in the fire service. This initiative was presented to the City Council in 2021 and included in the Schedule of Fees in the FY24 budget. Fire inspection schedules are set forth by North Carolina building and fire codes. Fee schedules are included in the City of Goldsboro Schedule of Fees linked below. Billing will be noted on the provided inspection and collected by a third-party company (Fire Recovery). If you have any questions, please contact the Fire Marshal’s office at 919-739-7411 https://www.goldsboronc.gov/wp-content/uploads/Manual-of-Fees-and-Charges-COG-FY24_9.pdf  Go to page 18 for Goldsboro Fire Department specific fees.

This years fundraiser is a milestone event! For the past 10 years, Engineer David Grice has been heading up our annual Cures for the Colors Breast Cancer T-shirt Fundraiser. With this being the 10th year, Engineer Grice along with the t-shirt committee has chosen a brightly colored pink t-shirt. The back design includes an American flag backdrop with the flag layered with the breast cancer ribbon ending with hands holding together. The front design is a smaller scale version of the back without the flag. The sleeve is imprinted with 10 years to commemorate the 10th Anniversary of our fundraiser. The design represents our slogan for this year of "Fighting Strong". We are fighting strong with those going through this horrible cancer. Please help support the cause by purchasing your t-shirt today. Call 919-580-4265 to reserve your. Sizes are running low, so call now!

North Carolina Rescue Association Certification

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.
