Response & Demographics

Response & Demographics

Wilson Fire/Rescue Service is dedicated to the life safety of its citizenship. How we respond to emergency, and how we use the data collected from past experience with emergency, is a vital part of our ability to serve our customers. 

The development of specific service areas for designated fire stations is vital to our ability to respond with efficiency to every call. Our dedication as First Responders to the majority of emergency calls in Wilson is in direct relation to our designated service areas.

Now with the implication of GIS (Geographic Information Systems) technologies, we can look at the data gathered in various areas to help make our response that much better. Wilson Fire/Rescue Services, in conjunction with other local service agencies, study various areas of information. Dangerous buildings, areas of fire prevalence, flood plain areas, vehicle accident tracking, water distribution and others to help us learn new and more efficient ways to respond to, and prevent, future emergency situations.
