Goldsboro, N.C. — The Goldsboro Fire Department has selected James Farfour as its deputy chief. Farfour has been with the Goldsboro Fire Department for 25 years, beginning his career as a firefighter.
“I am honored to serve as the Goldsboro Fire Department’s Deputy Chief,” Farfour said. “I have been fortunate throughout my career to work alongside some great people and developed some great relationships. It has always been my honor to serve as a firefighter, and I look forward to preparing our department for the future.”
Goldsboro Fire Chief Joe Dixon said Farfour was selected from a highly competitive pool of candidates.
“Dozens of candidates from all across the United States applied,” Dixon said. “Chief Farfour impressed us with both his professional knowledge base and a palpable desire to be a part of the vision to advance the Goldsboro Fire Department to new levels of community service and professional excellence.”
The deputy chief position is a newly-created role that is the first step in the reorganization of the Goldsboro Fire Department. This reorganization of the Department’s command structure will create a more efficient workflow for administrative tasks and allow flexibility in supplementing field staffing when necessary.
