Company 5, Deep Creek Volunteer Fire Department, is committed to serving the community and County. We strive to improve ourselves and our services and uphold values of Honor, Integrity, and Respect.

Company 5 was founded in 1994, making us the youngest Company in the County. Firefighters saw a need for service to the western end of the County and thus, the Deep Creek Volunteer Fire Department was formed. The station was built with funds obtained from the community and local businesses
