Mission Statement

The Upper Hominy Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department Incorporated is dedicated to life safety, incident stabilization and property conservation. We provide fire suppression, prevention and control to the Upper Hominy and Beaverdam communities and through mutual aid to the surrounding communities. We also provide rescue and emergency medical services to the best of our ability to our communities. We also provide fellowship for our members through meetings and training sessions. We make every effort to maintain up-to-date training methods and practices. We respond to all cries for help in the Upper Hominy Fire District as well as surrounding communities no matter how large or small.


The Upper Hominy Fire Department provides Fire Suppression, Rescue Services, and Advanced Life Support Medical response to the Upper Hominy and Beaverdam communities.  We also provide response to a large portion of the Blue Ridge Parkway.  Station 1, Main Headquarters, is located on Pisgah Highway and is staffed around the clock by a Captain and one Firefighter.  Station 2 on McFee Road is staffed around the clock as well with one Lieutenant and a firefighter.
