About Us

The Wingate Volunteer Fire Department is made up of a diverse group of men and
women who serve the Wingate and surrounding communities. We currently have
over 38 members who dedicate their lives to serving others. Our members meet a
minimum of four nights a month to ensure we are prepared for whatever situation we
may encounter.
 
The Wingate Volunteer Fire Department offers a wide variety of services that include
but not limited to fire suppression, emergency medical care , vehicle extrication and fire
prevention through education. We operate 24 hours a day 7 days a week always ready
to serve our community. Our department has seven vehicles in our fleet consisting of
2 engines, one tanker, one brush truck, one squad, one first responder vehicle and one
support vehicle. Over the last 10 years, our organization has nearly doubled our call
volume answering nearly 900 calls for service each calendar year. With such a demand
on our department, on January 4, 2010, we began to staff our station Monday through
Friday from 7:30 am to 5:30 pm with two members on a part-time basis. This program
has helped us maintain and ensure our equipment is ready for service at all times. It has
also helped us meet the challenge of ensuring that our increase in daytime call volume
is answered as quickly as possible. This program has proven itself beneficial helping the
organization but more importantly the citizens we serve.
The Wingate Volunteer Fire Department is here to serve you, our fellow citizens. I
would like to take the time to thank you for all the support you have given us making our
service so rewarding. We are always looking for dedicated members of our community
who have a desire to help others and to come join as a member of a great family, the
fire service. If there is anything our department can do for you just stop by or call us at
704-233-4137.
