Corolla Fire & Rescue provides fire protection and rescue services to the Corolla community.  The area served within Currituck County, it is known as Fire & EMS District 6 and CFR is known as Station 6.  CFR’s coverage area runs 14 miles from the Currituck County line at Pine Island to the first mile of the “beach strand” area just north of the North Beach Access Ramp above Ocean Hill. While Corolla is only about ½ mile wide at its widest point, the sheer length of its coverage area necessitates that it have two fire stations so that no property within the area is more than 5 driving miles from the nearest fire station.  The beach area north of District 6 is known as Carova.  Carova VFD (Station 7) services Fire & EMS Fire District 7.  The total Currituck Outer Banks beach area covers 24 square miles.
