The mission of the Bakersville Volunteer Fire Department is to protect the lives and property of the people of our community from fires, natural disasters, and hazardous materials incidents; to save lives by providing emergency medical services; and prevent fires through prevention and education programs.

About Us

In 1956 the Bakersville Volunteer Fire Company of Jefferson Township was started. The founding members created the department because they felt the response time for any of the neighboring fire departments was just too long due to the distance they needed to travel. They started with one fire truck that was
pushed down the street by the firemen to get it started.

It is a much different world we live in today. The Bakersville Volunteer Fire Department has changed with the times. We use the most current equipment and training techniques to ensure that our community has the best protection available in a volunteer department.
