Caswell County Volunteer Fire Departments
Caswell County Fire Protection Service District
This is why the Caswell County volunteer fire departments are numbered.
Until 2017, Caswell County's volunteer fire departments were disorganized. They had no number and were funded locally (by stew and BBQ sales) and received no county money. Yanceyville and Milton had separate taxing authority. Oddly, so did Casville.
Fire Protection Service District
Fire Protection. The service district consists of an area that is 428 square miles in size. There are currently ten (10) Volunteer Fire Stations and two (2) sub-stations in close proximity to the District that are staffed with by volunteer personnel and equipment at each station.
The stations are strategically located to ensure the appropriate equipment and response times are for the best of the community that it serves. Each station is equipped with at least one Engine Company and one Tanker that are staffed by volunteers to provide protection from all fires in the district.
