Wake County Fire Services Department conducts inspections in all unincorporated areas of Wake County and in the municipal areas of Rolesville and Wendell. If you are located within a municipal area other than Rolesville and Wendell, please refer to the list below for other Fire Prevention Offices.

The Wake County Fire Code Enforcement staff provides a variety of progressive fire prevention services.

The section is charged with the responsibility of enforcing the North Carolina Fire Code, which relates to fire prevention in structures. Periodic inspections are conducted on all structures except one and two-family dwellings.

In conjunction with periodic inspections, the section also issues several different Fire Service Permits. This includes public fireworks display permits, blasting permits and others.
