Richfield-Misenheimer Fire Department

The Richfield-Misenheimer Fire Department provides emergency services to a primary response district of approximately thirty three square miles that includes areas within Stanly, Cabarrus and Rowan Counties as well as the municipalities of The Village of Misenheimer and Town of Richfield.  The department was incorporated as a nonprofit organization in Dec. 1955 with the combined efforts of community groups, businesses and individuals that saw the need for a local community fire department.

Over the years the department has strived to provide for the best service possible in a proactive way to those within the community. Currently the department operates out of one station located on west Church Street in Richfield with around thirty volunteers and a paid part time staff to help cover incident response during the weekdays while the volunteers are working their full time jobs.
