Thank you for visiting the Morehead City Fire EMS website. The Morehead City Fire EMS Department is a full service department offering: fire suppression, fire prevention, Advanced Life Support (ALS) Paramedic transport, inspections, fire investigations, and rescue of trapped victims.

The Morehead City Fire Department was established in 1906 and the Morehead City EMS Department was formed in 1958, as Morehead City Rescue Squad. On July 1, 2000 the departments were merged, creating the current Morehead City Fire EMS Department. The department protects a City district of 6.81 square miles and the Mitchell Village-Crab Point Fire District of 11 square miles, with an approximate population of 22,000 residents between two districts.
