Fire Station 5

Dedicated in 1991, Concord Fire Station No. 5 is located at 170 Pitts School Road. Originally operated by the Pitts Volunteer Fire Department, the structure was renovated and expanded in 1991 as a result of an agreement between the Pitts VFD Board of Directors and the City of Concord for the Pitts Fire District to be protected by the Concord Department of Fire & Life Safety, and that all equipment, vehicles, and structures owned by the Pitts Fire District be given to the City of Concord. Thus, since 1991, Concord Engine Company 5 has been responsible for this area. Engine Company 5 is quartered in this station.

Fire Station No.5’s first due area includes the Charlotte Motor Speedway, Embassy Suites Hotel/Convention Center, Great Wolf Lodge, a mixture of residential, multi-family, industrial, commercial occupancies as well as the Hwy. 29 and Speedway Boulevard corridors.
