Banner Elk Volunteer Fire Rescue is a non-profit company that provides emergency services to the citizens and visitors to Banner Elk and Sugar Mtn NC. The members are dedicated to protecting life and property by providing the community with fire safety, safety education, and fire prevention as well as providing fire suppression and assistance with medical emergencies. The members also provide mutual aid to surrounding fire departments in and out of county jurisdictions.
The goal of the department is to minimize property damage and loss of life to the citizens we protect while staying up to date with current firefighting techniques and training. The department currently has thirty four members two of which are paid by the county to be at the station during the day through the week. The paid employees assist the membership in reporting, hydrant testing, pre-planning, and lowering the NC OSFM Insurance rating. Currently we hold a split six/nine rating but hope to change that within the next year with your support and contributions. Thanks for visiting and we hope you enjoy our site.
