Hickory Fire Department

The Hickory Fire Department provides high quality emergency services, education, and prevention that protect our community through professional coworkers focused on customer service, compassion, commitment, and innovation. Formally organized in 1905, the Hickory Fire Department's goal is to prevent fires, save lives and property, and protect the environment. That is a simple statement, but vast amounts of training and planning go into reaching this goal to better protect the citizens of Hickory. Implementing this goal must always be done within the budget restraints formulated by the city administration and approved by the City Council. The Hickory Fire Department promises to strive toward improvement, to listen to the needs of our community, and to ensure our department answers the needs of the public throughout the city.
