MISSION STATEMENT:

The mission of the Parrotts Chapel Community Fire Department is to serve all the citizens of the fire district by protecting life, property and the environment from ravages of fire, and other emergencies whether man made or natural events through prevention, public education and timely incident response.





THE PARROTTS CHAPEL COMMUNITY FIRE DEPARTMENT IS DEDICATED TO PROVIDING EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE THROUGH THE COMBINED DELIVERY OF QUALITY FIRE PREVENTION AND PUBLIC EDUCATION PROGRAMS



PREVENTION

WHY IS FIRE PREVENTION IMPORTANT?

Statistics from the Fire Protection Research Foundation shows that communities with an aggressive fire prevention program are likely to be involved in 75% less structure fires, 90% fewer injuries and 70% less property damage.

It is clear that fire suppression activities are not the only way to combat the ravages of fire-a well planned and executed fire prevention program is a less expensive and more effective way to accomplish the goal of the fire department.

Therefore, to help achieve our mission statement our goal is to minimize the risk of life and property loss from fire by controlling or eliminating hazardous conditions combined with a proactive public education program before fires occurs.
