Fire & Rescue

Welcome to Havelock Fire & Rescue! Our department is a small progressive municipal department that provides fire protection as well as an aggressive EMS system providing services at the paramedic level.

The department’s personnel consists of 18 career employees and 25 volunteers. The fire department responds to incidents inside the City limits while EMS and rescue contracts with the County to cover an area of 220 square miles. We average about 500 fire incidents a year and respond to 2,100 EMS calls. We have one 75-foot ladder truck, two engines, 4 ambulances and one medium rescue truck.

Our Mission: To prevent and minimize loss of life and property through education and experience.

Our Vision: To be recognized as the premier Department providing the highest level of service to our customers within both city and county limits.  

Our Core Values:

  • Teamwork – Working together to become One
  • Service – Highest quality available provided to all our customers
  •  Professionalism – Act and perform in everyday duties
  •  High Standard – We expect and deliver the very best
  •  Effective/Efficient – Provide the best care, equipment and services within our means
  •  Integrity – Do what’s ethically and morally correct
  •  Pride – Knowing we have tried our best in all aspects of a situation
  •  Commitment – As one unified unit, we believe in the Mission, Vision and Core Values of our organization


Crews were dispatched to 200 Shipman Rd for a report of a structure fire this morning. On arrival heavy smoke and fire were found. Two victims were rescued from an upstairs apartment without injuries and a quick knock down of the fire was made. Four units of the building were effected by fire, smoke, and water damage. The Red Cross was contacted to assist the displaced families. Crews remained on scene for a few hours doing salvage, overhaul and general clean up. There were no reported injuries on scene. Special thanks to our automatic mutual aid departments; Township 6 and Cherry Point Fire Departments for all their assistance.
