Welcome to the Waxhaw VFD website. We continue to work very hard to assure exceptional service to our fire district twenty-four hours a day and three hundred and sixty-five days a year. We have many exciting updates in the works to better serve our community. Here is a list of our efforts:
- Refurbished a 95’ Baker Aerialscope from Seagrave Fire Apparatus, which now gives us access to all of the rooftops in our fire district and enhances our technical rescue capabilities.
- Taken delivery of two new Seagrave engine companies to replace two engines that were 20 years old or older.
- Began renovations at Station 27 in the JAARS center to reduce our response times to that area.
- Began the design phase for a new fire station on Waxhaw Creek Road at Quail Roost Road. This
station will lower the insurance premiums for those living in the area.
- Hired our first full-time firefighter/EMTs to provide a more consistent staffing of our stations
As impressive as these additions are, they will never take the place of working hand in hand with our community. We continue to look for opportunities to engage with our community to provide fire and injury prevention programs and information. We welcome input from the community and can be reached for non-emergency inquiries at (704) 843-4001.
