Clyde FD now has in operation a new emergency warning device. This siren will sound if there is any emergency situation that requires an evacuation of the public. This siren was used in 2004 during the floods we encountered. If this siren sounds during severe weather, it will indicate that the water level for the pigeon river is getting to its highest level before running over the banks. At which time the public living on or close to the Pigeon River should seek higher grounds. PLEASE REMEMBER NOT TO DRIVE OR WALK IN HIGH WATER , OR WHERE WATER IS CROSSING THE ROADS.

Burning Permits
Clyde Fire Department is a certified burning permit agent meeting the requirements of the NC Forest Service. These permits are issued to residents in the community for disposal of yard accumulation debris only. There is no charge for the permits and they are available every day between the hours of 08:00 and 5:00 P.M.. The permits do not permit someone to burn machine piled debris. If a resident needs to dispose of machine piled debris they should contact NC Air Quality Control for a valid permit. Burn permits can be made online from the NC Forest Service. CLICK HERE

Child Safety Seat Inspection Station
This service is provided by appointment only. Motor Vehicle Crashes account for nearly 42% of all unintentional childhood injury-related deaths. One method for us to help reduce this percentage is formal education to parents and caregivers on the proper installation of child restraints and correct harnessing of the child in the seat. Parents are encouraged to call the station between the hours of 8:00 P.M.. and 5:00 P.M.. to schedule an appointment with our technician. Each technician has a national certification in Child Passenger Safety and are trained to educate parents and caregivers on the many different vehicle belts systems, many different car seats on the market, and the Best Practice Recommendations for children riding in car seats

Fire Prevention Education for Elementary Schools 
Each October is fire prevention education month. Each year we provided education on fire safety tips to Elementary School aged children. The department has a very active fire prevention team that chooses different topics each year to educate the children on. The children really respond well and enjoy the show. The on-duty firefighters follow up with classroom visits and ask the children questions about the show; this technique really reinforces the behaviors learned to the children and allows us to see how well the presentation methods worked.

Knox Boxes
These security boxes are placed at business and residences for after hour access for the fire department. These secure boxes are mounted to the buildings and the master keys or door access keys are placed in these boxes and locked by the department. The department has a Knox box placed in each of our first out engines. Anytime that there is a request for the key to be unlocked it is documented on a recording tape and we have access to who has asked for the box to be unlocked. The only keys are located in these vehicles. If a business or residence changes a master key they have to call into the department and schedule a time for us to come out and unlock the box. This system helps the departments to gain rapid access to the building without causing damage to the building or residence. The firefighters are then able to extinguish any fire or investigate fire alarm activation. Before this system the firefighter could only do a walk around of the building and they wait up to 45 minutes or longer for a key holder to arrive and then unlock the building.

Pre-Incident Fire Plans
Our department does pre fire plans on commercial occupancies within our fire district to gain knowledge and information of special hazards and situations. The on-duty personnel schedule a time that the owner/occupant can meet with them to do a walk thru of the facility to let the personnel become familiar with the building and grounds and to ask any questions that they might have of the facility. These are not fire inspections of the facilities. Fire Inspections are done by the Haywood County Fire Marshal’s Office not by individual fire departments unless the department is incorporated within a city or town.

SRT/ Water Rescue
Clyde Fire Department has members that are trained to various levels in water rescue from swift water to calm water and includes the use of rafts. This team is used by our department and by other agencies in need of specialized resources for swift water rescues and water rescues.

Stations Tours
Station tours are available to the public at any time. Please call 828-627-8842 to schedule your group or personal tour of our station.
