2018 Annual Report

Harrisburg Fire Department Headquarters 6450 Morehead Rd. Harrisburg, NC 28075

Letter from the Chief We appreciate the opportunity to inform you about how much we take pride in serving our community. Harrisburg Fire Department continues to see our call volume increase, especially for emergency medical calls. Our ability to have an Advanced Emergency Medical Technician on every piece of fire apparatus responding to you allows us to efficiently and effectively serve those in need. If you are not aware, Harrisburg Fire Department is the only fire department in Cabarrus County with advanced life support capabilities. As Chief of the Harrisburg Fire Department, it is my privilege to submit the department’s Annual Report for 2018. The facts, figures and descriptions found in the following pages represent literally thousands of hours of work put forth by the department’s personnel toward our goal of providing the citizens of Harrisburg with a safe community in which to live, work and play. The economy and associated construction of single-family houses will be a challenge to our fire department in the future as fire resources are impacted with increased demands on our service levels. With the support of our Town Council and leaders we will continue to meet the challenge with providing updated information to proactively plan for the future needs of our community. If you have not noticed, we are active on social media platforms to provide timely information to our community. Not just incidents but information on our daily activities, public education, and our involvement in this great community. We hope this provides you with a better understanding of our duties as a fire department. As 2018 begins, this department stays steadfastly committed to our mission of providing quality service and reducing harm to the Town’s residents and guests. We sincerely appreciative our community for the continuing support shown by the Mayor, Town Council, Town Manager and citizens of this community. Stay safe, Bryan R. Dunn

Chief of the Harrisburg Fire Department
