FireDeptThe Williamston Fire Rescue EMS is a combination department providing Fire, Rescue, EMS and Hazardous Materials response to the Williamston and Skewarkee Fire District. The department consists of 60 members divided into 3 separate operational divisions. The Fire Rescue EMS Department and the HazMat Team respond to approximately 2,500 incidents per year and cover 122 square miles. 

The Fire Rescue EMS department operates with 19 full-time career personnel along with approximately 37 volunteers. It maintains 3 shifts of 5 personnel working 24 hour shifts, in addition to one Fire Marshall, one Administrative Assistant, one Assistant Chief and one Fire Chief. 

The department values the service and dedication of its volunteers. Volunteers play a tremendous part in Emergency Services. Without the services of our volunteers, it would very difficult, if not impossible, to provide the services currently being provided.

On a daily basis, our operations staff provides day-to-day operations to ensure the needs of emergency response are up to standard so our customers, the citizens, are well protected and cared for in the event of an emergency.   

Our Fire Marshall office is responsible for fire code enforcement and fire/life safety education. The prevention office conducts fire inspections to the businesses in our district and provides fire/life safety education talks and station tours to groups and individuals.

Williamston Fire Rescue is a certified safe kids child safety seat check station with 8 certified child passenger seat technicians.

Williamston Fire Rescue EMS is also one of seven in North Carolina that houses State of NC Hazardous Materials Response Teams. NC RRT-1 team provides emergency hazmat response to 25 northeastern NC counties. The team has 40-plus personnel trained at the Technician and/or Specialist level.
