Fire Department/EMA - The Town of Pike Road is pleased to be able to support three well-prepared and fully-equipped fire departments. These three volunteer fire departments are well-trained and equipped with the most current tools and technology. Each department maintains a competitive ISO safety rating, reducing residents’ insurance costs. Moreover, the Town is served by a 24-hour emergency medical response including ambulance service. The Town of Pike Road provides 5 mills of property tax to support fire and rescue efforts in our community. The three volunteer fire departments that service the Town of Pike Road are: Pike Road Volunteer Fire Department, Rolling Hills Lakes Volunteer Fire Department and Waugh/Mt. Meigs Fire Department.
Road Maintenance - As the Town of Pike Road continues to grow, the need to service the roads that connect our community also grows. This task falls on state, county and municipal providers. At the municipal level, most maintenance and upkeep is related to new neighborhoods and other development, but eventually the streets will be designated as municipal. To prepare and provide for these needs, the Town contracts with a private provider and engages a municipal engineer. In addition, the Town partnered with qualified traffic engineers to develop a comprehensive traffic plan.
Law Enforcement - The Town of Pike Road works through a partnership with the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office to provide law enforcement. From regular traffic patrols to investigation service, the Sheriff’s Office has excellent coverage, great response time and a successful track record.
