Founded in 1922, the Mebane Fire Department is an organization of dedicated professionals who are committed to serving the community by protecting life and property through prevention, education, emergency medical and fire services. Operating out of three stations, the Department covers a 35 square-mile district with a population of nearly 25,000. Each of the three stations is strategically located in areas that provide the best coverage and response to the citizens we serve.
The Department consists of 51 members, including 26 volunteers and 25 career employees who cover the department 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Those members operate a total of 13 fire apparatus, including 3 engine-pumpers, 2 engine-tankers, 2 brush trucks, 1 utility rescue truck, a 100-foot aerial platform, and 3 support vehicles. There is also a paramedic from Alamance County EMS that is housed at Station.
