The E.M. HOLT FIRE DEPARTMENT works together with one vision — to serve the growing population of Alamance County, NC , including the Village of Alamance, by providing fire protection and emergency medical assistance, as well as promoting the safety of the property and lives for nearly 160,000 citizens. This effort takes the cooperation of a combination of nearly 50 volunteers, 11 paid career staff and department leaders, who are firefighters and Emergency Medical Safety Technicians.
These men and women dedicate their time and skills, but more importantly put their lives on the line daily to caring and saving lives of others. Together, they ran 830 calls in 2017 and expect to see that number grow each year. Perhaps surprising, the youngest member of the squad is 14-years-old, and some members have served the department as long as 50 years.
Chief Mark Fuqua — who has been with E.M Holt Fire Department 36 years —has also been at the helm 19 years ensuring the department carries out its mission. Funding comes from different sources, including the Town, county government, tax payers and local community fundraisers. As the need for services grows, so does the need for local stations throughout the community.
Today, it’s exciting the Village of Alamance is building a third station which is expected to be complete by 2019.
