Financial Information


This fire department was formed as a non-profit fire department that contracts with Lincoln County to provide emergency services to the citizens located within and passing through the fire district. This fire department is not a government agency, which means we are not required to abide by North Carolina open records laws. Despite that fact, the Board of Directors and fire department management find it necessary to provide the public with as much information as possible so that anyone interested in the financial and operational functions of their fire department can view this information with ease.

In order to make such information readily available to the public, the Board of Directors and fire department management have included their IRS Form 990s for the last (3) three years on this website page for review.

Annual Budget

The Board of Directors and fire department administration feel that fiscal transparency is a key element in community interaction and trust. Our department contracts with Lincoln County to provide fire protection and emergency response to the citizens, and visitors, within our district. 

Our department relies primarily on the funds received from fire tax collection. As stewards of the community, we feel it is responsible to let our citizens see how those funds are expended.
