Home Safety Tips
Located in beautiful Oak Ridge, North Carolina, the Oak Ridge Fire Department has nine full-time employees and twenty volunteer firefighters. Because Oak Ridge provides service to more than 4000 residents over approximately 15 square miles, we have two full service stations. We are an ISO rated department with a rating of "6", and we are always looking for a "few good men and women" to volunteer to help us help your neighbors.
