Since 1962 the Dallas V.F.D., which consists of approximately 24 active firefighters, has proudly served the area by providing fire protection for the town, and mutual aid for neighboring communities.

Mission
Dedicated to the fire protection of children, adults, senior citizens, businesses and property, the department's mission is to respond to, and mitigate, emergencies involving fire and entrapment of people, as well as provide fire prevention education to local schools and businesses. The department also assists with several community events and sponsors the popular annual Dallas Christmas parade.

Awards
In recent years the Dallas Fire Department has been awarded several federal and state grants, including Homeland Security’s “Assistance to Firefighter's" (AFG) and the “Fire Prevention and Safety" Grants, and NC Dept of Insurance OSFM Volunteer Firefighter's Grant. The Town of Dallas and the department actively seek all available grant monies in order to provide the best service possible for our citizens.

New Educational Programs
Recently the department introduced two innovative fire safety public education campaigns: "Fire Safe Kids" and "Fire Safe Senior Buddies".

These educational programs consist of demonstrations, fire drills, inspections and special literature aimed at fire safety for young children and senior-citizens. The safety techniques are taught at local day care providers, kindergarten through second grade classes and senior-citizen living facilities.

Dallas V.F.D. Updates
In order to accommodate the growing needs of our fire department, as well as provide the community with better fire protection and a much-needed meeting facility, the town and the fire department have been working on plans for a new facility for many years. On May 31st, 2009, long-awaited plans became reality when an Open House was held for the official christening of the new Dallas Fire Station.
