Serving our Town with Pride and Enthusiasm

The Landis Fire Department is comprised of paid staff (full-time and part-time) and volunteer members. The fire department operates out of two stations which house 3 engine companies, 1 ladder company, a brush truck, a squad company, a hazardous materials unit, a mobile light tower, an antique fire engine, and staff vehicles. The department serves approximately 4,900 citizens, expanding over 5 square miles of territory, including 45 miles of roadway. The Landis Fire Department responds to all fire service calls within the municipality and fire district, to include the East Landis Fire District.

The Landis Fire Department was recently awarded an improved Insurance Service Office (ISO) Rating of a Class 2 for both its municipal and rural service districts.

Knox Box Secure Systems

Do you own a commercial business? Do you have an elderly family member that lives alone? Knox Box Secure Systems gives the availability for fire departments to make easy access to your business or home without damaging your property.

Save yourself time and money by not having to replace doors or windows that firefighters may have to force open to get to a loved one, to silence a fire alarm, or to stop a leaking sprinkler head.

Knox Box Secure Systems allows fire departments to retain a key to access your Knox Box at your home or business to gain access to one or more keys that open your doors on the property.

Contact our Knox Box Secure System program coordinator, Captain Charles Sheeks, for more information.

Burning of Trash

The burning of trash is always prohibited.


Citizens should note that the burning of leaves, grass, and other such materials is also prohibited within the Town of Landis because the Town of Landis provides debris removal of limbs and leaves, provided they are placed at curbside during designated times of the year.

Citizens who live outside the Town of Landis and do not have debris removal services, should first acquire a burn permit from the North Carolina Forestry Service prior to any planned burning.
