The China Grove Fire Department currently has a part-time Fire Chief, and a full time Assistant Fire Chief.  The  Fire Department is a combination of full-time and part-time employees and a number of volunteers that are responsible for fire protection, rescue services, and emergency medical first response within the Town limits. The Fire Department strives to improve the quality of life for Town residents by providing public education and ongoing training for firefighters.

The primary goals of the Fire Department are to:
  • Reduce and prevent the loss of life and property damage
  • Improve the outcome of patients
  • Quickly rescue trapped victims
  • Protect the environment from destruction
Fire and Rescue Training 
We train every Monday evening at 7:00 pm. We alternate training locations each week with Bostian Heights Fire Department. The first Monday of each month, we offer medical responder continuing education classes for our personnel and for other emergency service agencies. The other Monday evenings, we train in all aspects of fire and rescue techniques.

It takes someone with a special desire to do something important for the community, someone with courage and dedication, who is not afraid of hard work, and is willing to accept the challenge of a difficult job. We are seeking individuals that are energetic; self-motivated and have the willingness to learn new things. Excitement, adventure, camaraderie, the satisfaction of getting the job done, and the pure excitement of rolling down the road in a fire engine to help those in need...YOU just might be the person we are looking for. 

If you are this kind of person, you are needed as a volunteer firefighter. In you are interested in joining, please feel free to contact the Fire Department for more information.
