Important Notice regarding ALL of Fairview VFD Stations
With Coronavirus (COVID-19) spreading throughout the country ,Fairview Fire Department must ensure that our personnel are protected and follow the proper policy and procedures to maintain and prevent the spread of COVID-19 within Fairview Fire Department facilities.
The goal of this plan is to protect our members and to ensure their health and safety, as well as the health and safety of their families. All safety measures possible are being taken to ensure the safety of our personnel and the continuity of operations.
Effective Monday, March 16, ALL Fairview VFD Stations will be closed to ALL NON- EMERGENCY Visitors amid the growing concerns of COVID-19, and only essential Fairview VFD Personnel will be allowed access to any our stations
Station tours, and all other NON-EMERGENCY visits involving entering our stations will be discontinued until further notice.
1. If you have an emergency and you will be driving to one of our stations, we ask that you call 9-1-1 on the way and we will meet you outside the station.
2. If you call 9-1-1 please let the dispatcher know if you or anyone in your household has flu like symptoms.
3. Burning Permits will only be issued by the online system provided by the NCFS, until further notice.
We apologize for any inconvenience but we must take strict preventative measures to protect our Emergency Personnel. If we have one person exposed to this virus, it has the potential to affect an entire shift. If an entire shift were exposed, they would need to be quarantined for 14 days. We cannot afford to have 12 or more personnel quarantined for14 days. This was drastically affect our Response Procedures.
We are following this procedure as most all of Buncombe County Government has closed their buildings to non-essential personnel to prevent exposures to our personnel so that we can continue to provide proper response to every emergency that occurs in our district.
THIS TEMPORARY PROCEDURE IS ONLY FOR VISITORS TO OUR STATIONS.

We are proud to announce that we have received our new fire engine! This engine will be stationed in our main district, and will be our primary response engine. It is a Spartan / Smeal IPS-NXT engine equipped with a 500 HP diesel motor and a 2250 GPM pump. It has seated positions for 5 firefighters, of which 4 have integrated air packs.
