Huntersville Fire Department
 

An important part of the Mission of the Huntersville Fire Department is fire prevention through public education. HFD is committed to providing the highest level of service and professionalism to the residents and visitors of Huntersville and to ensure their safety by providing select services geared towards fire prevention education and awareness.

Each year HFD and the Mecklenburg County Fire Marshal’s Office make visits to the primary and secondary schools within town to provide this education and awareness. During the summer HFD assists the Fire Marshal’s Office and the Huntersville Police Department with the annual Safety Town program for 3 weeks in July.  In October of every year (Fire Prevention Month) HFD is very busy visiting schools throughout town. Some additional services that HFD offers on a case by case basis are Fire Truck Visits and Fire Station Tours. Each of these services is outlined below:


HUNTERSVILLE FIRE TRUCK VISIT

Fire trucks are exciting, especially to young children; but they are more than an amusing toy to climb on or a photo backdrop. The Huntersville Fire Department utilizes its personnel and trucks, as a reminder and training tool that practicing safe habits, applying simple fire prevention techniques and fire awareness can prevent injuries and fires from occurring in the community.

Whenever HFD accepts an invitation and brings a fire truck on-site, the HFD crew will show and explain the truck as well as the equipment and tools within. They will also teach children and adults basic fire safety tips such as the importance of smoke detectors, the proper use of 911, the importance of having and practicing a fire escape plan, what to do in the event of a fire or emergency and many other safety tips.

If you are interested in having a fire truck come to visit or attend your event, please send an e-mail request to the following email address: events@huntersvillefd.com at least three weeks in advance (30 to 45 days is preferred) to make a request. You will have to answer some questions related to your request such as: The date and time of your event, total number of participants, age range of the participants and the purpose of your event (i.e. community safety fair, fire prevention education event etc). Your request will then be forwarded to a Chief Officer for approval.

  • Trucks are not available for birthday parties, grand openings, sidewalk sales or to support for-profit businesses and events.
  • Due to safety issues, you must have ample space for a Fire Truck to safely park outdoors and leave quickly in the event of an emergency call.
  • Trucks do not visit preschools and or daycare facilities because it's difficult to keep young children's attention.

we invite preschools and or daycare facilities to consider visiting us at one of the fire stations where the environment is more controlled and comfortable. Coordinating a station visit and tour is outlined further below.

Disclaimer: Please note we make every effort to fulfill your request. Program, Firefighter and truck appearances are limited to within the city limits of Huntersville only. HFD reserves the right to decline or cease program participation at anytime. Depending upon availability, safety materials may be distributed by the responding Firefighters.

 HUNTERSVILLE FIRE STATION VISITS

All three Huntersville fire stations are staffed 24 hours a day, 365 days a year with paid duty crews. Guests are welcome at any time during day light hours; however, it's preferred that if you're bringing a group that you call the station you intend to visit (see station list below) at least three weeks in advance (30 to 45 days is preferred) to arrange the visit. You will have to answer some questions related to your request such as: The date and time of your event, total number of participants and age range of the participants.

Fire Prevention, Education is a big component of a fire station visit. Expect the crew to show and explain the various fire trucks kept at that particular fire station as well as the equipment and tools within. They will also teach children and adults basic fire safety tips such as the importance of smoke detectors, the proper use of 911, the importance of having and practicing a fire escape plan, what to do in the event of a fire or emergency and many other safety tips. They will also give a brief tour of the station facilities. Visitors are requested to provide an appropriate adult to child ratio to ensure proper span of control. Visitors are reminded that the station is a working, functional fire station and that crews may need to cease the visit at any time to respond to an emergency call.
