Chief's Message

We proudly provide services in Fire Suppression, Fire Prevention, Hazardous Materials, Public Education, Water Rescue Dive Team and EMS First Responders.

The Fire Department has approximately 45 volunteer members ready to serve you in a courteous and professional manner. We take pride in our service delivery and we use our training and skills to assist our residents, business partners and visitors on approximately 360 calls annually.

We believe in community based fire services, the practice of having firefighters involved in many community activities and events. We also encourage our community to get to know our firefighters by visiting our fire station and community events regularly. We are energized by our partnership with the community we serve. We are a department driven by values which include honor, loyalty, duty, passion, respect, quality, and integrity.

In closing, we want you to know that the men and women of this department are honored to serve the Lake Gaston community.

Firefighters still make house calls - 911 in an emergency. Just remember, when others are running out of a burning building, our members are running in.

Thank you for visiting our site. If you have any questions please contact me at the address below.
