Buies Creek Fire Department

January In Review

Wednesday, February 3, 2016  January was a busy month for the members of District 8. Members ran approximately Thirty-Nine fire related calls for service. These calls ranged from the normal bells and smells on campus, to MVA's, structure fires, mutual aid responses, as well as winter storm related calls for service. Members also ran approximately One Hundred and Forty Eight Emergency Medical calls for service. Hats off to all the members who contributed numerous hours staffing the station during these winter calls and also responding to these emergencies. January was a great start to the new year and we're looking forward to what the new year entails!  Check out our link below to see our 2015 Year in Review!

Buies Creek is Expecting a New Ladder

Tuesday, February 2, 2016  Buies Creek Fire Department has approved funding for a new 1.1 million dollar 105' Pierce Platform. This apparatus will replace the current 1987 Pierce Arrow Platform we operate. The new apparatus will feature state-of-the-art equipment, and will also represent a black and orange paint scheme to show our continued support for Campbell University. This is one of only two ladder truck companies in the county and will benefit the citizens of Buies Creek and surrounding communities. To read more about the story, Check out the Dunn Daily Records article on the new ladder truck.
