The Elon Fire department responds out of two Fire stations, Station 8 and Station 18. Both fire stations are staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and ready to provide fire protection, emergency medical response, public service assistance and public education. We have mutual aid agreements with and assist other agencies throughout Alamance County. We are dedicated to, and take pride in, providing the absolute best service in the most professional and courteous manner.
Our team is trained to respond to a wide variety of fire protection calls such as structure fires, vehicle fires, brush/grass fires, gas leaks, automobile accidents, and hazardous material emergencies. In order to ensure we can respond efficiently and effectively to all emergencies, our team is trained in using a variety of specialized equipment including thermal imaging cameras, self-contained breathing apparatus, multi-gas detectors, and the jaws of life to name a few.
In addition to fire protection, all of our team are trained emergency medical technicians. We regularly respond to medical calls including heart attacks, breathing difficulties, automobile accidents, diabetic emergencies, strokes, and other medical emergencies.
In the event of hazardous weather, The Elon Fire Department serves as the Emergency Operations Center for the Town. They direct the responses of first responders and work with our Town Manager to ensure the residents are safe and free from harm.
Outside of responding to emergencies, the team provides classes in fire safety, fire extinguisher use, and preform smoke and carbon monoxide detector tests. They also will attend events to explain what they do, conduct blood pressure checks, and show off the fire trucks.
