Welcome to the Burlington Fire Department's web page. It is our hope that the contents of this site will help the citizens of Burlington protect themselves from fire and other emergencies by developing a safety-oriented community. We realize that accidents do happen but we want the public to know what services we provide, how to contact us and what to do until we arrive.

The Fire Department is made up of three divisions and links to each division can be found in the column to the left on a desktop browser.  Mobile users should scroll down to the bottom of the page and use items found under "Navigation".  Visit each division for information on how we protect the lives and property of the people in Burlington, NC. Always call 911 in case of an emergency.
