Last night we trained with Gumtree Fire & Rescue & Wallburg Fire & Rescue on extended large diameter hose lays. We were able to get our initial water started from our on board tanks and then switch over to our supply line that was 2000’ long. With the help of the other departments we were able to flow 1750 gpm. This is one way we are always working to save our tax payers $ on insurance premiums and make sure we are able to handle fires that aren’t close to a fire hydrant. #NcFire ... See MoreSee Less
Wondering about a burn ban? The N.C. Forest Service has not enacted a burn ban but is urging landowners to think before burning yard debris. Check local burning laws. Some communities allow burning only during specified hours. Others forbid it entirely.
Dry air with low humidity and brisk, gusty winds Friday will lead to an increased fire danger across most of NC. All outdoor burning is discouraged, as flames may quickly spread out of control. #ncwx ... See MoreSee Less
