The Town of Zebulon Fire Department provides fire suppression, rescue, and EMT-basic medical response within the corporate limits of Zebulon and the Wakelon Fire District (which includes portions of both Wake and Johnston Counties). We proudly protect approximately 12,000 people living in a 29 square mile area from a station in downtown Zebulon.
In 2021, we were awarded a Class 2 fire protection rating within the corporate limits and Class 3 in our unincorporated area within five miles of the station. Our department is a combination department consisting of sixteen full-time paid staff members, nine part-time staff members, twenty volunteers, and up to twenty junior firefighters. Additionally, the department provides fire and life education programs, including child safety seat programs, and fire code enforcement services within the corporate limits and extra-territorial jurisdiction.
