Thanks for taking the time to stop by to learn more about the Mineral Springs Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department. Our fire department serves 43 square miles in Union County, North Carolina.

Our department operates out of two stations. The main station is located on Highway 75 inside Mineral Springs, North Carolina and houses 7 pieces of equipment. The sub-station is located at the intersection of Rocky River Road South and Doster Road. This station houses 4 pieces of equipment.
