Green Creek Fire Rescue was organized in 1964 as a Volunteer Fire Department to serve the community.
The first fire station was at the Green Creek School in the old agriculture building. The Green Creek Ruitan Club helped to start the fire department.
the new fire station was built on the corner of Green Creek Dr and NC Hwy 9 where it still sits today. This station now serves as the headquarters of operations for Green Creek Fire Rescue.
a substation was built on Chesnee Rd to help serve the southeastern area of our district.
Green Creek Fire Department started providing Medical First Responder services to the community.
Green Creek Fire Department also added a BLS or Basic Life Support ambulance to our fleet to better serve our citizens.
We became Green Creek Fire Rescue. We are progressing with the needs of a growing community to also provide more services related to rescue.
We currently have an ISO rating 6/9E. Property owners within 5 road miles of either station are within the protection class of ISO 6.
As you can see from our Call statistics we jumped up 99 calls from our previous year, With this growth we have began staffing two personnel to our main station from 8-5 when most of our volunteers are at work, with this we have improved our AVG call response time from 10:11 to 6:11 which may not seem like a long time, but when you or a loved one is in need it can feel like a eternity.
Even though GCFR has paid staff we are always looking for Volunteers if you are at all interested in becoming a FireFighter,Emergency Medical Technician Or a Rescue Tech please do not hesitate to stop by our fire house or call us (828-863-2100) we are always excited to have new faces from our community at our station.
