Notes From Chief Kelley
Let me start by saying North Canton Fire Department has the greatest group of men and women who put their lives on the line to serve our community. I could not ask for a more professional group of fire fighters. North Canton is proud to say we have 39 fire fighters, 2 junior fire fighters, and 2 medical only members. Alot of our members are on speciality teams throughout our county. Since becomming a fire department over half a century ago I am only the 4th Chief. That speaks volumes in its self. We are always moving forward with the modern fire service. As Chief, these folks make me more and more proud as time clicks by. We have completed our audit from the NC DOI to lower our ISO Rating and achieved a rating of 5 district wide. This should save money for all our homeowners in our district. The hours and hours of dedicated work that went towards this effort paid off in a MAJOR way and to that I say THANK YOU!!! We now have recieved a SAFER Grant and a new AFG grant to replace all our SCBA's. We are currently planning on appling for another AFG grant to get replacement rescue tools next year. We cannot sit still in this dynamic industry. We always need to be moving forward and looking for ways to improve the job we are called to do. Be ready NCFD, Be safe NCFD, and hang on for the ride NCFD!!!!
-----------God Bless you and Be Safe
