Thank you to Stations 21, 19, and 12 with your assistance on the multiple structure fires yesterday, 1/19/15.
Congratulations to our new Board of Directors elected at the Annual Meeting on February 7th, 2013. Staci Griswold and Jerry Jones were elected to 3 year terms.
As of July 1st, we’ve welcomed 1501 into service. She’ll be our first out truck on in district structure fires, our mutual aid truck for Mocksville, and will be our company transfer apparatus.
We’d like to thank Cooleemee Station 14 for assisting with Ladder 14 on our call yesterday. It was a big help. Hopefully one day we can repay the favor.
We want to say a big “Thank You” to everyone who came out and supported our recent BBQ Chicken Fundraiser. It was great to see such great support from our community.
Red flag warnings are issued for many of the NC Piedmont for 4/10/12 until 20:00. If possible, all burning of debris should be avoided until conditions change. For more information, go to:
This Saturday, April 14th we’ll be hosting stations 12, 19, and 21 for a live burn off Phelps Way. The preburn class is Monday, April 9th at 19:00 and is mandatory if you wish to participate in the live burn.
EMS Con Ed for the rest of 2012, DCCC FF 1 and 2 Classes, and announced Fire College dates have been added to the Calendar of Events.
On Friday, March 9th, we took delivery of a 1993 Ferrara Spartan Engine that was purchased from Lowell Volunteer Fire Department in Lowell, NC. This truck will replace tanker 1506, is a 10 man custom cab, has a 1000 gallon poly tank and a 1250 gpm Hale pump. We are in the process of outfitting it and hope to have it in service in a couple weeks.
As of 2am last night, we officially “sprang” forward an hour. If you haven’t moved your watches ahead, this is a friendly reminder to go ahead and do so! Looks like Spring is finally arriving. Also remember to change your smoke detector batteries.
