A Word From Fire Chief Ben Major

ChiefBenMajor_webThe City of Fayetteville is an outstanding community in which  to live and work, and take advantage of the many opportunities for family fun.  One of the goals of the City is to ensure a safe and secure community. The Fayetteville Fire/Emergency Management Department consistently works with internal and external stakeholders to ensure a collaborated effort in ensuring a safe and secure community.

And in the event that a disaster occurs, we strive to mitigate the incident with reliable and professional services.
