Department of Fire
Anthony S. Goode, Chief of Fire
The Wilmington Fire Department is a career, professional fire department which was established in 1921. The department currently maintains six engine companies, two ladder companies, and a marine fire fighting force. The department is divided into two functional divisions, each under the command of a Deputy Chief; the Operations Division and the Administrative Division.
In recent years, the department has promoted a ride-along program which gives city residents an opportunity to experience the functions of the fire department and evaluate possible career decisions. In addition, department officials have shown their commitment to providing the best emergency services delivery through the promotion of continuous training, active involvement with community associations, and implementation of a Customer Satisfaction Survey.
