Since 1972 the core values of Pride, Honor, and Integrity have been the influence of sixty+ members. Sherrills Ford Terrell Fire & Rescue exists to service the residents of the district through Life Safety, Property Conservation, and Hazard Mitigation.

 Responding to calls for nearly 9,700 residents in the area of over 45 square miles with 117 miles of shoreline of Lake Norman, this department relies heavily on volunteer and career firefighters. With the growth that has been seen and the projected growth in southeastern Catawba County, the calls for help will increase. In response, the Sherrills Ford - Terrell Fire & Rescue keeps a steady watch on the growth and makes sure that we stay proactive instead of reactive.


We encourage you to look at the information contained in this web-site and also encourage you to ask us questions about your Fire Department.

Again, we are here to help our residents in their time of need.
