Raleigh Fire Department (RFD) to Provide Services to Wake New Hope Area

The City of Raleigh plans to provide emergency fire services to residents of the Wake New Hope Fire Station 1 District. This change, scheduled for July 1, 2022, is expected to result in improved services with no extra cost to residents.

The Wake New Hope Fire Station 1 service area has changed dramatically since that department’s establishment in 1956, with most of it being annexed by the City. That has left small pockets of unincorporated areas of land and homes. Less than five square miles remain for New Hope Fire Station 1 to cover.
