Chief Joseph Dixon

Chief Joseph Dixon joined the department in July of 2018. He made tremendous advancements in the department in his time here. He implemented a reorganization of the department to include the positions of Deputy Chief and Lieutenant allowing for more advancement opportunities within the department. This reorganization was also a cost-saving effort not only within the department, but the city of Goldsboro. He has encouraged new and differing training opportunities to allow the personnel to grow in their knowledge of the fire service. He was an advocate, not only for the employees of GFD, but for the citizens of Goldsboro as well. Chief Dixon left the department to pursue other opportunities in March of 2021.
