A Message from the Fire Chief

On behalf of the Dobson Volunteer Fire Department, let me welcome you to our website. It is my hope that this website will help our community stay up to date on Town operations and better understand the services we provide. Allow me to take this opportunity to tell you about my specific department.

Our Fire Department consists of a dedicated group of approximately 25 volunteer members. We meet every Monday but remain on-call and ready to serve at a moment’s notice 24 hours a day and 365 days a year. We are proud to report that our fire district has an ISO rating of 5. Our department embodies the age old tradition of neighbors helping neighbors and we deploy an array of equipment to protect our community including two Engines, a Ladder truck, and a support vehicle. If you interested in joining our department I would encourage you to apply to volunteer by submitting the standard application for employment to Town Hall. I would also like to personally invite anyone interested in our operations to make an appointment to tour our Department and see our equipment.
