Hunt (660x800)Thank you for visiting the official website of the City of Shelby Fire & Rescue.  Whether you are a city resident, a part of our business & industry community, a visitor with us, or simply passing through; rest assured that our cadre of professional officers and firefighters stand ready to meet your public safety needs.

Throughout its history the Fire & Rescue Department has enjoyed a reputation for excellence in service.  The department embodies a multi-faceted approach  to public safety protection ensuring; that buildings under construction adhere to modern safety standards (engineering), safe practices and habits are taught in our community (education), that existing buildings in the city are maintained in a safe condition (enforcement), and effective intervention is mobilized when incidents occur throughout the city (emergency response).  These four service delivery pillars come together to form the community-risk reduction model which asserts that successful communities are places where its citizens can feel safe and secure (economic vitality).

The Fire & Rescue Department joins other city departments in contributing to Shelby's quality of life, its cultural fabric, and business friendly environment.  I invite you to click on the headings to the left to learn more about the people and resources of the  City of Shelby Fire & Rescue.

 With best regards,


William P. Hunt MPA, EFO, CFO
