Hello Riceville Community and Friends. Warmer weather is upon us and we have numerous people that either ride bikes or run on Riceville Road, please use caution as you approach blind curves and hills. Also warmer weather means outdoor activities, please stay hydrated, have a plan if something happens, check for ticks often, and protect your skin. We hope you enjoy the Blue Parkway and back trails of the Riceville Community and have a great summer. If you wish to stop by our Fire Department to see our trucks, please do so.







Are you looking for something new?  Are you a leader in the Fire Service looking for your chance to make a difference? We have several positions available from Shift Captain to Shift FF/ AEMT to part-time on EMS.  Give the Chief a call to see what we can offer you!  828-298-2456

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.
