The Crewe Volunteer Fire Department located on Hwy 460 Business, provides fire protection for the Town. The Department is currently staffed by 32 volunteers and supported by a Junior Fire Department program and a Ladies Auxiliary. In addition to their tank trucks, pumpers and brush truck, their fleet of well-equipped vehicles includes a Heavy Rescue Vehicle, a First Responder Unit and a Rescue Truck. Many of the members are trained and qualified to treat life-threatening emergencies.
Established in 1921, the CVFD is also the proud owner of an antique 1923 Ford fire engine. Among the oldest in the country, this engine still operates under its own power. It sits on display in the fire department and is often driven through town for parades and special events.
