Fire Department

The Roanoke Rapids Fire Department is a team oriented organization with a diverse group of individuals, who strive to make a difference in the lives of others. We accomplish this by providing the citizens of the City of Roanoke Rapids with dynamic, efficient and productive services. We are committed to the basic philosophy of serving others by being in the "helping people business."

Protecting an area of seven square miles, the department is comprised of two stations with 32 personnel. It includes One Engine Company, One Engine/Ladder company.

Strategic analysis and community risk reduction will enable the department to be successful in our multicultural society. What one values or deems important may be different to another. This concept is foremost in our minds as we preserve and protect property and the quality of life for all beings.
