Fire Safety

Public Education

The Gibsonville Fire Department participates in public education events to help raise awareness about fire safety. These community events help teach both children and adults what to do in case of a fire and are a great opportunity to find out more information and meet your local firefighters.

Home Fire Safety Equipment

Time is of the essence when it comes to fire in your home. The Gibsonville Fire Department faces hundreds of fire calls every year, and while we try to reach every call as quickly as possible, having your home prepared can buy precious seconds, helping us save your life and the lives of your family members. The fire safety equipment shown below can help you be prepared in the event of a fire.

Hard-Wired Smoke Detector

A hard-wired smoke detector and carbon monoxide alarm provides you with worry-free protection.

Battery-Powered Smoke Detector

In areas where hard-wiring is not available, battery-powered detectors can be installed anywhere.

Carbon Monoxide Detector

These carbon monoxide alarms plug into any standard wall outlet, providing constant monitoring.

Fire Extinguisher

A fire extinguisher can put out small fires and prevent major loss or fire damage.

Two-Story Fire Escape Ladder

A fire escape ladder is a good option for two-story homes with upstairs bedrooms.

Fire Safe

Keep your important documents safe and secure with a waterproof fire-rated safe box.

Reflective Address Signs

While the items above may help prepare your home, if the fire department needs to be dispatched to your home it is important that they be able to locate your address quickly. Reflective house number signs make it easy for any first responder to identify your home, whether it is the fire department, police, or EMT. These signs are available for purchase through the Gibsonville Fire Department. Contact us at 336-449-6969 to order yours today.
