North Catawba Fire-Rescue was organized as North Catawba Fire Department in 1958. As the needs of our community have evolved, the services we provide have expanded. North Catawba Fire-Rescue currently has a roster of almost 50 members and offers fire, rescue, and medical services to the Baton Community, the Town of Cajah's Mountain, and the surrounding area. We have specialized rescue teams for dive, swift water, and ATV. We also have three ALS vehicles and a paramedic at the station 24/7/365. In addition to the medic, there are at least two other firefighters on duty at any time. The rest of our members are volunteers who want to make a difference in the lives of their neighbors.
