Please come out and support keeping not only us, but Cooks open as well. We have been serving this community for over 50 years, and we plan on serving it for 50 more. Volunteer companies are vital to the business. We provide excellent care to our area, we provide a place for men and women to come and learn how to make a difference in the community, we help anyone in need, and we always have each other's back.

Tomorrow is the big day!!! We need all the support we can get to show everyone why we deserve to keep our doors open! I am asking everybody in the community and surrounding area to please show up to the government center tomorrow at 6pm and tell the county commissioners just how much you want Cooks VFD to keep responding to your homes, protecting your lake, and being role models to your children. This is our community to protect! The commissioners want to hear the community voice their opinions and I am positive that once that happens they will understand just how much the department means to the area. There is power in numbers!!!! Again that is tomorrow night 3/10/20 at 6pm in the government center (600 E 4th St in uptown) room 267. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me via email @[email protected] thank you for all of your continued to support and #CooksVfdIsHereToStay

We hope that you find something very wrong with this picture. With Turkey time almost here and the growing popularity of frying a Turkey, we wanted to remind you that this absolutely needs to be done outside at least 18 feet from a structure.

Mint Hill Fire Department

Thank you for all you have done in the past 45 years! It was a pleasure serving with your ambulance crews!

https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=717892388644779&id=111201222647235

For 45 years, the Mint Hill Volunteer Fire Department has proudly provided emergency ambulance transport service to the citizens, workers and visitors to the Town of Mint Hill and surrounding area. We are now announcing that our service will be transferring to Mecklenburg EMS Agency (Medic), which provides emergency medical services for Mecklenburg County.
The Mint Hill Volunteer Fire Department was founded in 1952 and has acted as the EMS transport service since 1974. The department provided this service at the highest level with first an all-volunteer staff, then with paid firefighters and paramedics.
We feel that the citizens we serve have been blessed to have this service available to them at a local level. We are the only fire department in Mecklenburg County that has made EMS transport service available in its response area. Unfortunately, due to ever-increasing costs, the growth of our area, and the lack of enough qualified paramedics to adequately staff our ambulances, we find it necessary to pass this important responsibility to Medic.
The fire department will continue to provide the same high-quality service, along with the personal touch that our citizens have come to expect from us for fire suppression and prevention, rescue services, and as medical first responders. We still hold to the motto of our charter members: “We are neighbors helping neighbors.” Many things have changed in Mint Hill since that time, but we are adamant that the philosophy of helping our neighbors stays intact.
It is important that those who call 911 in our response area know that the same capable and competent members of the Mint Hill Fire Department will still be the first ones through their door to help them with their emergency, whether it is a fire, rescue, or medical issue. The only difference is if transport to the hospital is required, it will be provided by Medic.
We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to all of those who continue to support our service, whether financially or for the good name that you promote for us. We thank you. Our commitment to that quality of service and personal touch has never been stronger. We are here for you, and will continue to serve you at the highest level possible.

What a fantastic morning at our new Station-2 on Rocky River Rd. Our Grand opening was attended by many citizens who took the opportunity to look around our new home. A mere 45 seconds after being “Officially” backed into quarters Engine-2 responded on their first run. Special thanks to Tin D. Lam, DDS and Food Lion for providing drinks, snacks and an amazing cake, we can’t thank you enough. Check out our Instagram @Harrisburgfirenc for videos of our first call at our new home.
