Town of Clayton Water Tower at Sunset
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 facilities, physical fitness room, dayroom, kitchen, bedrooms.  We even have  and even 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, Fire Support 1/Boat and water rescue equipment, our Reserve Engine, and an ATV used for rescues in remote areas or at congested areas during events. Our Trench / Collapse unit is also assigned to Station 1. 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 East, Clayton NC 27520

Opened in 2000, Station 2 has three bays, a day room and an office. In 2007, it was expanded to include sleeping quarters, a kitchen, and an extended bay. Station 2 is the home Squad 2,  Engine 2, Brush 2, and an ATV used for wild land firefighting. Station 2 covers five acres and is used in conjunction with the Town of Clayton Parks and Recreation Department. The area behind the station serves as a training area, and also includes the Town's newest water tower.

Staffing

Each station is fully equipped for full-time personnel that work 24-hour shifts and part-time personnel that work 12-hour shifts.   Station 1 is home to a Battalion Chief, Engine 1 and Rescue 1 staffing and our Administrative personnel (Fire Chief, Deputy Chiefs, Fire Inspector, and Admin Support Specialist). Station 2 is home to Engine 2 staffing. To save the Town money the firefighters do all the cleaning of the building and maintain the engines and equipment, unless repairs are needed from outside vendors.
