A Half Century of Service to Wake County
Welcome to Durham Highway Fire and Rescue. We are a full service fire and rescue department located in Northern Wake County in Raleigh, NC. Serving since 1964, Durham Highway Fire and Rescue responds to emergency calls including fires, vehicle accidents, and medical calls.
We are a combination fire department staffed with 3 shifts of full-time, career firefighters (North Carolina Firefighter and EMT Certified). Our full time staff works alongside our volunteer firefighters who meet the same training standards in addition to their own full-time job and family commitments. Our department is in constant need of individuals who are willing to volunteer their time and efforts in service to their community.
