Welcome the Town of Clayton, North Carolina

Two stations with a growing area to cover.

Station

Station 1 - 325 West Horne Street, Clayton NC 27520

This station opened in 2005 replacing the much older original Station 1 that was part of the 1927 Town Hall building that now sits empty at 231 East Second Street. This modern station serves as the department headquarters and houses administrative offices, training room, physical fitness room, dayroom, kitchen, and bedrooms.  We even have a laundry room where we can wash our own turnout gear, which saves the Town the money by not sending our gear out for cleaning. The station includes six bays and is home to Battalion 1, Engine 1, Rescue 1, Engine 12, Rescue 12/Boat and water rescue equipment, our Reserve Engine, and ATVs. We also have the air machine here used to fill the tanks with compressed air that we sometimes need for breathing in fires or other hazardous situations.

Station 2

Station 2 - 800 NC 42 Highway, Clayton NC 27527

Station 2 is the home to Engine 2, Engine 22, and Brush 2. Our Trench / Collapse unit is also assigned to Station 2 .Station 2 covers five acres, serves as a training area, and also includes the Town's newest water tower which also has design features to assist in our training delivery (a "dummy" fire department connection-FDC, and multiple working platforms, at various heights, and anchor points).
