Wildland Fire Preparedness

As hotter and dryer weather is upon us, so is the threat of wildland fires.  The Candler community is all too familiar of the possibility of wildfires in our area over the past years.  Now is a great time to prepare your home and property to remain safe from the possibility of an out-of-control wildland fire that could cause threats to you in the urban environment.  Spring and fall are typically our worst threats for wildfires in WNC so it's never to early to begin preparing to not be overwhelmed when a real threat is upon us.




The Upper Hominy Volunteer Fire & Rescue Department is looking for volunteers who are interested in becoming a firefighter.

If you are looking for an opportunity to serve your community, feel free to come by one of our stations or give us a call.
