A combination paid and volunteer organization, we man two fire stations with another unmanned station in the Laurel Ridge Community.. We have 19 paid firefighters 8 part time paid, and 45 volunteers at the present time. The department has achieved a Class 4 rating for the town’s fire protection. We provide fire suppression and prevention, rescue, confined space and search services to the community. We protect some 27 square miles which include two fire districts, the Town of Black Mountain and the East Buncombe Fire District, as well as the Town of Montreat. Several large manufacturing facilities, conference centers and state facilities are within our protection areas as well as Interstate 40 and a major railroad line.
