Greetings. Thank you for visiting the Greenville Fire/Rescue website. We hope that you find the site useful and informative for you and your family. The men and women of Greenville Fire/Rescue are proud of the roles that we play in this community and in providing essential services such as fire suppression and emergency medical care.

Greenville Fire/Rescue has a long and proud history of providing great service to the greater Greenville community. We have built, and continue to earn, a reputation for providing a full range of high-quality services to the community, and we take great pride in that service.

We understand clearly that we are a service organization and, as such, our successes hinge on hiring solid and reliable employees. We provide continued training throughout one's career, and invest very heavily in providing an initial training package that far exceeds state requirements. We emphasize the development of our staff to ensure a future pool of well-trained and educated leaders. Our staff is made up of 153 men and women, who are all career employees. They take great pride in their jobs and hold one another to a high standard.

Greenville Fire/Rescue is an ever-changing entity that will continue to evolve and adapt to the changing community and environment. We are one of the few completely cross-trained departments in North Carolina that provide fire suppression services along with ambulance transport at the paramedic level.

I urge you to do your part to keep our community and your family safe. Plan an escape route from your home. Establish a meeting place for your family and once out, stay out. Make safety a daily part of your life and remove hazards that you encounter. Finally, the simplest and often most overlooked message of all, smoke alarms save lives. While we pride ourselves on rapid response times, having a working smoke alarm in your home best assures your safety from fires.

Thank you again for visiting our site.
