 About Us
 Print this page

Fairview Volunteer Fire Department is located approximately 7 miles east of Asheville, NC and covers approximately 46 square miles. The Fairview VFD was established in 1959 and later chartered in 1961.

The first piece of apparatus was housed in the basement of an old rock store which still stands beside Fairview Elementary School.

The Main Station is located at 1586 Charlotte Highway, Fairview, NC 28730. This station has been added on to twice since it was originally built with only 4 bay's. In 1997 we made our last major addition to the Main Station. Through the hard work  and efforts of the Board of Directors, Firefighters, Auxiliary and the Community, the department owed no money for this addition when completed.The addition added living and sleeping quarters, offices, larger kitchen, and brought the total number of bays up to 16.The main station apparatus consists of (2) Pumper/Tankers, (1) 4X4 Engine, (1) 4X4 CAFS Engine, (1) 75 ft Ladder, (1) Heavy Rescue, (1) 3500 gal. Vacuum Tanker, (1) Brush Truck, (1) Battalion Chief vehicle,(1) Chief Vehicle, (1) Quick response Vehicle,(1) All Purpose Utility Vehicle, and (1) ATV.

In September 2007 construction on our substation located at 799 Old Fort Road was completed and we moved in.The Old Fort Road Substation consists of (1) Engine, (1) Tanker, (1) Medium Rescue, (1) QRV/ Brush Truck.

We now have 22 career personnel complimented with Volunteers, who man the stations 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. All career personnel are certified Level two firefighters, Rescue Technician certified, Hazardous Materials Operations certified and operate at the Emergency Medical Technician-Basic Level. Some of the volunteer and part-time personnel have these certifications.  All members are currently lead by Chief Scott Jones.

The Fairview Volunteer Fire Department responds to an average of 1100 incidents per year which include fire, medical, and rescue.

We encourage anyone to stop by for a visit and tour the stations.
