Thank you for visiting the Elon Fire Department’s web page!  It is our goal that the contents of this site provide the citizens of Elon, guest, students and residents throughout our district with helpful information about the department and the services we provide.

The Elon Fire Department is a combination department made up of 18 career staff, 10 part time staff and approximately 25 volunteers.  Our staff operate out of two fire stations and respond to approximately 1,900 calls annually.  Our primary fire district covers about 11 square miles and we also provide mutual aid assistance to other fire departments throughout Alamance County.  Elon Fire Department provides fire protection, emergency medical response and public service assistance to a diverse district.  Our primary response district consist of the Town of Elon businesses and residents, Elon University, one large retirement community, two assisted living facilities, Elon Elementary School, Interstate 85/40 and a number of businesses and residents in our rural area outside of the Town limits.

The Elon Fire Department is very proud of our Insurance Service Office (ISO) Public Protection Classification.  The North Carolina Office of State Fire Marshal conducts an evaluation of fire departments throughout the state and rates their performance, training, emergency responses, equipment, stations and other areas of emergency services and rates them with a number from 10 down to 1, with 1 being the best.  We are very proud to say that we are an ISO Class 3 fire department.  This rating helps both our business owners and residents of the Town of Elon with discounted insurance premiums.

Currently our department has a total of 14 pieces of apparatus: 4-Engines, 1-95’ Aerial Truck, 1-Rescue Truck, 1-Tanker, 1-Brush Truck, 3-Command Vehicles, 2-Utility Vehicles and 1-UTV.
