We take great pride in being part of an elite group of Class 4 departments in North Carolina. We provide the Riceville Community with fire and emergency medical services, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Please feel free to browse around for useful safety tips and information about our department.

Volunteer firefighters devote their time to protect you and your community. Duracell's Power Those Who Protect Us donation program lets you give back to these selfless heroes. When you purchase specially marked CopperTop packs, they will make a battery donation to volunteer fire departments to power communication devices and life-saving equipment. Each pack contains a unique code, which you can enter to direct your battery donation to a volunteer fire department of your choice.
