Kings Mountain is located on Highway 74 and Interstate 85, west of Charlotte, North Carolina. Kings Mountain is a growing town of about 10,000 people in 10.5 square miles. The fire department prides itself on being dedicated to the community it serves. We have a staff of 11 full and part time personnel and 25 volunteers and have an average of over 400 calls per year, with most of those being incidental calls. I have been with the department since 1974 and am proud to be associated with the dedicated men and women that we have on staff. Most of our members have numerous certifications.

We currently offer such services as free smoke detectors, educational classes, training for industries, a confined space entry team, tours of the fire house, and tours of our fire museum. We also host a Kansas City Barbecue Society (KCBS) BBQ cookoff each year in April. This event brings in cooking teams from all over the US.

We have a Mayor, City Council and City Manager which governs us, and thanks to the support of our city government we are a progressive department and are currently working on adding more full time personnel.
