Mecklenburg County Emergency Services is responsible for providing Fire and EMS services throughout the county and mutual aide to surrounding counties. Mecklenburg County's Fire and EMS services consists of 9 volunteer fire departments, 4 EMS, and 2 first responders; with the coordination between the Mecklenburg County Emergency Communication Center and all the Emergency Services in the county, they provide highest quality of care possible to our citizens.

Mecklenburg County Emergency Services strives to stay up to date with the latest technology to better service our community as well as the most up to date training for our responders. 

The Emergency Services Coordinator works with all the agencies to ensure that all Federal and State guidelines are being followed at all times. The Emergency Services Coordinator is also the contact person during disaster/large scale incidents in the county. The Emergency Services Coordinator also works with the Mecklenburg County Emergency Communication Center in alerting the citizens of weather disasters,missing persons, and other important emergencies throughout the county. This is accomplished with a system cal Alert Mecklenburg.

The Emergency Services Coordinator has the ability to send out weather alerts and other important information through Alert Mecklenburg. To learn more or sign up click on the Alert Mecklenburg above or call Stacey Allen at 434-738-6191 ext. 4219 and she will sign you up over the phone. 

Additional Services

Along with Fire and EMS services the county also coordinates with Air Ambulances (Helicopters) to help for extreme cases that our local hospitals are not equipped to handle. This includes Medflight, Duke, Centra, UNC, Wake Med and many others. 

Three of our local volunteer fire departments also have rescue boats to provide life saving rescues on the lake. These have been vital in helping the community stay safe while enjoying our beautiful water. 


As always the Emergency Services department encourages the community to contact Mecklenburg County Emergency Communication Center or 911 for all your emergencies.
