Fire Prevention and Public Education Division

A Message from the Fire Marshal

The Carrboro Fire Rescue Department remains committed to saving lives and property by means of fire prevention and public education. Often, the easiest fire for us to fight is the fire that we can prevent. We continue to emphasize the importance of working smoke detectors and practical escape plans. The department has several resources available to the public that focus on fire prevention and hazard mitigation. 


The links to the left of the page contain numerous general safety and fire prevention resources. The Community Services page highlights all of the programs available, both at our fire stations and at offsite locations as well. If you require any additional information or assistance, please don't hesitate to contact us!
