Leland Fire/Rescue

The Town of Leland Fire/Rescue Department was originally established in 1959 as a volunteer non-profit organization. Over the years, it transitioned to a combination department. In 2017, the department became a part of the Town of Leland.

Today, the department consists of 48 full-time sworn personnel, a full-time civilian Administrative Coordinator, four part-time positions, and volunteer sponsorship staff operating out of three fire stations. We protect and provide service to approximately 37,000 residents in the Town of Leland, the Town of Belville, and parts of northern Brunswick County.
