Community Outreach:

We provide fire prevention education to all CMS schools in our service district. We also participate in fire safety fairs, events, etc. We participate annually at “Safety Town” in partnership with the Huntersville Police Department. We also attend and participate in several annual events such as National Night Out, Regional Christmas Parade, town events such as Hello Huntersville Spring Festival, Fall into Huntersville and the Huntersville Christmas festivities.

Top Two concerns in your community: The rapid growth of our community and continuing to provide adequate coverage to the 62 square mile district in addition to increasing the infrastructure at a pace that matches the growth.

What upgrades will you make in your department this year? We’re updating our SCBAs, adding an additional tanker and finalizing plans for a new station.

What special hazards or unique businesses in your community?

We have a major interstate through the fire district, two large recreational lakes, multiple manufacturing facilities, a nuclear facility, a LNG facility and NASCAR manufacturing facilities.

List anything else you are proud of and would like the readers to know about.
