Q: What do I do when an Emergency Vehicle approaches me?
A: Pull to the right! If an emergency vehicle is approaching you from the rear please pull to the right. If an emergency vehicle is coming at you please pull to the right. With traffic being an unknown factor, it is imperative that you pull to the right when you see an emergency vehicle approaching you. This will help us reach our destinations in a safe and timely manner. Remember one minute may be the difference between life or death.
Q: How do I become a member of Northeast Cabarrus Fire Department?

Q: Is the Northeast Cabarrus Fire Department a volunteer or paid department?
A: The Northeast Cabarrus Fire Department is a volunteer organization that is supplemented by part-time employees. We have part-time personnel twenty four hours a day, seven days a week.
