Interim Fire Chief

A Word From Interim Fire Chief Mike Hill


The 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. As stated in our mission we are committed to the preservation of life, property, and the environment through effective public education, fire code enforcement, and emergency response. We continuously aim to eliminate or reduce preventable incidents that can have a negative impact on our citizens, the community, and visitors. And in the event that a disaster occurs, we strive to mitigate the incident with reliable and professional services.


The proud men and women that make up the Fayetteville Fire/Emergency Management Department are dedicated to providing efficient and effective services. And I greatly appreciate the team effort and our investment in the future of our organization. As always, we continue to move forward serving the citizens with R.E.S.P.E.C.T.!
