Our Story


The Elk Creek Fire Department was formed in 1948 by local residents who recognized the need to provide the community with fire protection. Completely volunteer and dependent on donations and using WW II surplus equipment the Department provided a much needed service to the community.

In last 74 years the call volume has increased to approximately 1,325 calls per year. The department now has career, full time, firefighters that work 48 hour shifts as well as a highly trained and dedicated volunteer staff. The department has state of the art firefighting and EMS equipment as well as a love to serve our mountain community.
