For your post-holiday historical enjoyment, History Boy has digitized more data as scanned from the annual conference proceedings of the North Carolina State Firemen's Association (NCSFA). They're all in PDF format, and they're text searchable! Here's the landing page: www.legeros.com/history/fa, where newly added are the following:
- Secretary reports from 1910 to 1994
These are lists of member fire departments, compiled by decade. Beginning in 1930, the names of the Fire Chief is also included. Plus the Secretary for some decades. Use these reports to kinda sorta observe the development of our state's fire service. Municipal plus some commercial and institutional, then more cities and town, then the first rural departments, then more rural departments.
But with one big fat disclaimer. Not every active fire department is listed in these reports. e.g., they weren't members. The Morrisville Fire Department isn't listed in these documents, though they've been operating since 1956. Why would a particular department decline membership in the NCSFA. To be determined. Maybe readers can help here.
- Credential Committee reports from 1892, 1899, 1909, 1911, 1913, 1920
These are detailed summaries of member fire departments, including the names of officers and fire companies. Plus in the 1892 and 1899 reports, the number of men, their apparatus, and other information.
- Officers from 1888 to 2000
These are a pair of reports that list the President, Vice Presidents, Secretary, Treasure, Statistician, and location of the annual convention. The A. W. Brinson who served as Statistician from 1940 to 1962? That's Albert W. Brinson from New Bern. He's the uncle of Ed Brinson, former Swift Creek and Fairview Fire Chief and current Assistant Director of the association.
Also available on the site, which were posted in prior years:
- Statistician reports from the 1910s and 1940s
These are tabular reports with extensive, exhaustive detail on the member fire departments, their composition and equipment, and even their fires. Here's a recent blog post about same.
- Convention dates and locations from 1888 to 2008
Also includes the dates and locations for the "colored" firemen's association, where known. That's the North Carolina Colored Volunteer Fireman's Association. Their history is also included on the site.
- Tournament information, including scores from 1907 to 1941.
Also linked from the site are a pair of related resources:
- North Carolina
Firefighter Excursions, Conventions, Contests, 1868-1912
Some 650 newspaper announcements and articles about the state's firefighters and their travels to see other departments, as well as the first couple decades of annual conventions and tournaments.
Early Black Firefighters of North Carolina, Annotated
Researched and created by the late Chuck Milligan. His version was posted to AOL and is no longer available. Legeros created an archived version and has expanded the information with annotations of both text and pictures.
Lots to read and a great resource for researchers.

Do you have a stack of Hose & Nozzle issues gathering dust somewhere? That’s the North Carolina-based fire service newsletter (for a couple years) and glossy magazine (for most of its life) that was published from 1949 through at least 1980.
I’ve amassed an incomplete collection and have plans for future indexing and selected digitization. Maybe next year, maybe a future year. Right now, I’m just asking around, from time to time. Got some back issues that I can take off your hands? Just drop a line!
See www.legeros.com/history/hose/ for more information about Hose & Nozzle.Reader Mail - December 2014
Happy holidays and let's open the mailbag...
Q: I am in possession of what appears to be a logbook from [this engine] from [this department in another state] for [these dates]. Would you or anyone you know be interested in this item?
A: Contact the Fire Chief of the department, and give them first right of refusal. They'll likely be interested in obtaining same. After that, you could contact the Fire Museum Network and inquire about interest from their member organizations.
Q: What is TSU 1?
A: That's the label on the front bumper of Raleigh's reserve rescue, one
of the department's two 2007 Pierce Enforcer walk-around rescue units.
It's housed at Station 14. They're identical trucks and the other is a
front-line unit used by Rescue 1. The acronym stands for Technical
Support Unit 1. There was an earlier plan to use the second rescue as
both (a.) reserve unit and (b.) second piece of apparatus for Squad 14.
With extra or additional rescue equipment. Don't know the current status
of that plan. Squad 15, incidentally, staffs a second piece of
equipment, a tractor-drawn trench rescue trailer that's parked behind
the station. Click to enlarge:
Q: I saw your site with Civil Defense apparatus and thought you might like to see Birmingham, Alabama's 1953 Reo rescue truck. Purchased on a 50/50 matching grant, it managed to stay in BFD until about 2000. It was last stationed near the airport and filled to the brim with stretchers for use at a crash at the airport. Then it was sold as surplus and languished in a car lot for several years before being refurbished. The truck was then donated to the Southern Vintage Fire Apparatus Association (Southern SPAAMFAA chapter). Along the way she lost her roof access ladder, extension ladder, and stokes basket, but we are lucky to just have her. Here she is... Click to enlarge:
A: Great looking rig! Thanks for sharing the pictures. We had a blue-over-white Civil Rescue truck in Raleigh. It stayed on the roster until 1980 or abouts. Was apparently sitting somewhere in Raleigh and later photographed in 2011 being towed to a local scrap yard. The truck sat around for a few months and was finally scrapped. We didn't learn about same until the following year. Read the blog post with that unfortunate news.
Raleigh Times story from March 14?, 1956. Plus inset photo from the North Carolina State Archives, courtesy of the News & Observer. Story by Trow Ford about Morrisville's first fire engine, a converted "war surplus tank truck" that had been placed in service the prior week. Was housed in a "small garage behind Jones and Sears store." They also installed an "air raid siren" the week before. It was donated to the fire department by "Civil Defense."
The truck was purchased for $175 last spring. They moved the 750-gallon tank "farther back on the chassis" and "rearranged the pumping system." They purchased $1,500 of equipment for the rig, including hoses, ladders, and lights. The truck was equipped with 500 feet of 1 1/2-inch hose, and 400 feet of 3/4 inch hose. That was the minimal county requirement. "Skirting" was done by Parrish Body Works for $500. Painting was done by Neville Paint Shop for $23. Everything else was done by firefighters or townspeople. Total expenditure, $2,500.
The fire department was organized one year earlier. They had 17 active members by the time of the story, plus one honor member, Willie Hester, a local blacksmith who did the welding on the truck. Click once or twice to enlarge:
Get your red cars right here! Reader David Raynor shares these vintage film prints of Raleigh Fire Department chief's cars. Let's see if we can date these. Say, late 1980? Ford Crown Victorias of unknown vintage. Readers? Last picture is a full shot of the chief's buggy. That's Fire Chief Sherman Pickard as Car 1. Click to enlarge:

Thursday's special-called meeting of the Wake County Fire Commission was notable for three reasons.
First, Fire Services Director Mike Wright introduced the strategic planning that his office has started doing, toward the future of the fire service in Wake County. Second, recommendations were presented on the cost share study that was recently completed. Third, Director Wright addressed his recently announced retirement of December 31, named his interim replacement, and received well-deserved praise for his time in office.
Allow me to attempt a recap. We'll go backwards, starting
with Mike Wright. I've had pleasure of making his acquaintance in recent
months. We've sat down and talked shop, and he's shared his perspectives on the
fire service from thirty-plus years of experience.
Meet Mike Wright
Wright was raised outside Miami (in a town actually called Swamp Water), and first learned about the fire service through his neighbors. They were Miami firefighters. Career guys. Then his family moved to the Triad, and he learned about volunteer fire departments. In high school, he became friends with a Junior Firefighter at Pinecroft-Sedgefield FD in Guilford County.
The rest, as they say, is history.
After high school, he was hired as a career member of PSFD. One year later, he was hired by Greensboro. That was September 1984. He was one of some thirty-five (!) hired. He continued to volunteer with PSFD through the late 1990s and then began volunteering at Colfax FD.
He reached the rank of Fire Equipment Operator in Greensboro, before leaving in 2004. His last assignment was Ladder 5. By that time he was also Fire Chief at Colfax. He held that position from 2003 to 2004. The split also gave him great balance. He loved riding the rig and did that in spades in Greensboro, while his administrative interest was fanned at Colfax.
(Biggest fire while working at GFD? April 13, 1985, when "the entire downtown burned." He'd just come off probation. They emptied the city so companies could go downtown. County units were called to cover, which was unprecedented. Before then the "vollie trucks" stopped at the line and didn't enter the city. Wright was coming on shift the next morning, so he didn't get called back. The other off-duty shift got to fight fire. He remembers a lot of overhaul and rolled hose.)
But by 2004, Wright was ready for bigger things. He heard General Norman Schwarzkopf speak, who said, paraphrased, "if you're tenured but not advancing, you're being a bit selfish by not helping to take care of the younger members of your organization." And he and his academy mates had children who were becoming firefighters. He wanted to help them.
("Maybe administration wouldn't be so bad," he was thinking one day at a house fire, as the younger guys were working less of a sweat pulling ceilings.)
(Sneaky scan from history book in Legeros library)
From Greensboro to Guilford to Wake
He left Greensboro (and Colfax) in late 2004 to become Deputy Director of Operations for Guilford County. The position was later changed to Deputy Director of Emergency Services. This was a reclassified position created as a head of county fire services. No, Guilford didn't have its own fire department. Rather and like Wake County in some regards, it was a collection of private fire departments. Plus the two cities (Greensboro and High Point).
The position was sorely needed. The county didn't really engage with the fire chiefs and their departments. Sure, the Fire Marshal's office was active with ISO and code enforcement. But things like mutual aid or standards of cover were left to the departments to work out. Which became the purview of the county firefighters association.
Wright worked in that position for nine years. Some of his efforts and project participation including merging the city and county fire department dispatching centers. That was a huge project that included creation and adoption of a county-wide number system (hello!). Guilford County also placed a "flying squad" in service during his tenure, a manpower unit that responded to structure fires anywhere in the county.
(Biggest fire in the county that he saw? Eastern Guilford High School, which burned in 2007. There over 100 responders that day, and maybe twelve fire departments. Initially he was Safety Officer. As more chiefs arrived, he was assigned to PIO after about an hour and a half.)
Last year, Wright brought his talents to Wake County. He started working as the new Fire Services Director on November 12, 2013. And he started talking with folks. Meeting with fire chiefs. Talking to boards of directors. Asking questions. Listening. Hearing.
And as he's been collecting information, he's been building a strategic vision. Which is simply "what's best for the citizens of Wake County." That's a compass point he's used throughout his career. When you're making difficult decisions for agency, he's fold of saying, you can frame it a single question: what's in the best interest of the citizens?

Research complete. Read about the histories of the fire departments at Fort Fisher Army Air Field, Fort Fisher Air Station, and Fort Fisher Recreation Station.

Narrative revised from December 9. Four vintage photos also added. Still collecting more information. From the 701st Radar Squadron (RADS) Facebook group, here are four vintage images from the 1980s. See this photo album for larger versions. Credits unknown. Click to enlarge:
What's happening with the airport EMS station project, you ask? The station was closed on October 14, 2014. EMS 34, EMS 35, and Medic 95 were relocated to the Lynn Road EMS station. That is, they start their day at same. EMS 34 anchors at WakeMed Brier Creek. EMS 35 anchors at Pleasant Valley Shopping Center. Medic 95 also sort of anchors at that location.
As for the building, that's the former Bay Leaf Station 3 / Six Forks EMS / Six Forks Rescue / Six Forks Fire Department building. Ownership of the 12,642 square-foot structure and its 1.09 acre parcel transferred to the county on September 19, 2012. Read more history in this prior posting.
The address of the airport EMS station is 6901 Mt. Herman Church Road. That's right before one of the airport's runways start. (Awesome views of incoming aircraft. They're right over your head.) As the aforementioned prior posting also notes, the three-bay building will cost $1.25 million. Estimated 4,084 square-feet, including supervisor's office, four-bed dorm, kitchen, and day room.
We're told that completion is estimated in June or July. Only changes to plans is a slight shift of the building. The thing's been moved a little to the northwest, to get out of the flight line restrictions. Demolition should be starting now. The property is owned by the Raleigh-Durham Airport Authority. They've had the land since June 21, 1990.
The former EMS building was built in 1972 and opened in 2005 as a Six Forks EMS station. Unsure the former tenants. The airport acquired same in 1990. Couple neat loading docs on the side and rear. Doubtfully will be missed. See exterior pictures of the building, from the other week.
Out of Town Firemen Man Stations For Chief Lloyd's Funeral - February 1955
Found this interesting clipping from February 28, 1955, after Raleigh Fire Chief Alvin B. Lloyd died off-duty. He passed away at Rex Hospital on February 25. Died of a heart ailment. Reported the unidentified newspaper:
Out of Town Firemen Man Stations Here
Firemen from all over North Carolina were in the city yesterday for funeral services for Raleigh Fire Chief A. B. Lloyd, who died Friday afternoon at Rex Hospital from a heart ailment, and to relieve local firemen in order that they might attend.
Members of the following fire department stood by at stations in Raleigh to answer any alarms that might have come in: Cary, Greensboro, Wilmington, Durham, High Point, Winston-Salem, Apex, Burling, Greenville, Rocky Mount, and Goldsboro.
Assistant Chief R. L. Matthew expressed appreciation [on behalf] of Raleigh firemen for the courtesy and help given them.
Chief Lloyd's obituary as published in the February 26 issue of the News & Observer:
Chapel Hill's New Blue Beast
Raleigh Fire Chief Dies
Alvin Brown Lloyd, 63, chief of the Raleigh Fire Department, died of a heart ailment at Rex Hospital here about 12:35 o'clock Friday afternoon.
Funeral services will be held Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock at the Edenton Street Methodist Church here. Officiating will be Dr. Howard P. Powell, pastor of the church, and the Rev. Charles K. McAdams, assistant pastor. Burial will be Montlawn.
The following members of the fire department will serve as pallbearers: R. L. Matthews, J. M. Burnette, J. W. Godwin Jr., J. B. Keeter, J. G. Harrison, and R. C. Lassiter.
Chief Lloyd entered the hospital Feb. 18, three days after suffering a heart attack, and remained there until his death. He had first been troubled with a heart aliment a few years ago.
Born in Granville County, he was the son of Duncan McRae Lloyd and Margaret L. Lloyd. A veteran of World War I, he was a member of the American Legion, Raleigh Post No. 1, and the Edenton Street Methodist Church.
Chief Lloyd, who joined the Raleigh Fire Department July 26, 1919, had more years of continuous service than any member of the department. Promoted to lieutenant in 1926, he became a captain the following year, second assistant chief in 1939, first assistant chief in 141, and acting chief in 1950. He was appointed chief April 1, 1950, succeeding W. R. Butts, who had resigned.
Chief Lloyd belong to the International Fire Chiefs Association, the State Firemen's Association, and the State Fire Chief's Association. He was a past district vice president of the latter organization.
Surviving are his wife, the former Miss Gladys Reeves of Madison County; a son, Harold Brown Lloyd of Granby, Quebec, Canada; two daughters, Mrs. J. K. Neely of Lafayette, La., and Mrs. Francis C. Edwards of Raleigh; four grand children; two brothers, G. Cleveland Lloyd of oxford and J. Frank Lloyd of Raleigh; and two sisters, Mrs. Lee Rogers of Creedmoor, and Mrs. H. E. Shaw of Raleigh, Route 4.
Downtown Chapel Hill posted this photo on their Twitter feed on Saturday. That's the newest piece of apparatus for the Chapel Hill Fire Department. Named Tac 52. Military surplus 6x6 transport truck obtained through the NC Forest Service VFAP Cooperative Program. Outfitted with a skid-mounted suppression package.
Will serve as a brush unit for wildland interface fires, as well as support for storm response and special events. Should be a boss for flood rescue. Recall that there's an area of town on the east side that's prone to flooding during severe storms. Believe it's presently housed at the shop.
Photographed during Saturday's holiday parade. As the tweet states, needs a nickname. Blue Beast? Big Blue? Ram Tough?

Apex Announces New Fire Chief
As this News & Observer story reports, the town of Apex has found their new Fire Chief. From Rocky Mount comes Keith McGee. He's a lifelong firefighter who started in high school in Wilkesboro. He's been a member of the Rocky Mount Fire Department since 1991, and presently (or now formerly) their Operations Division Chief. McGee was chosen out of 164 applicants from across the nation. He'll start later his month.
Retiring is Fire Chief Mark Haraway, who's led the department since June 2002. He's also been key contributor to the Wake County Fire Commission. Haraway was formerly Fire Chief of Elizabethtown, from January 2000 to June 2002. His fire service career also included the ranks of Captain at Wilmington (1995-1999) and Engineer and Training Officer at Wrightsville Beach (1990-1995). He's retiring this month after over thirty years in emergency service.
Congratulations to both! Welcome to Wake County, Chief McGee. And see you on the proverbial other side, Chief Haraway.Presenting a History of the Morehead City Fire Department
Announced a new page of historical information: www.legeros.com/history/morehead-city. Landing page is a basic web page. Research documents are PDF files. Three of them: apparatus, infrastructure, and timeline. Why Morehead City? That's is my adopted hometown. Moved there at age fourteen from Minneapolis. Their history has increasingly interested me as the decades have passed.
First dipped my toe into the subject in 2005, for the first of a series of "Then and Now" articles for FireNews.net. The series was based on Sanborn Fire Insurance Map information and compared the composition of fire departments around North Carolina between the 1900s-1910s-1920s and present-day. Also around that time a visit was paid to the Carteret County History Place. Obtained old photos, some notes, and a retrospective from 1951 published in the News-Times.
Fast-forward a few years and a few blog posts later. Compiled this timeline in September. Was a good start, but too short. Enter Captain Jamie Hunnings and his historical information. We commenced a long-distance collaboration. Primary sources included the aforementioned article and fire department centennial celebration brochure from 2006. Remote research was conducted, with bits and pieces found via Google searches. Particularly about major fires and notable incidents.
Added some images, including vintage pictures from Jesse Chaplain from Beaufort (from a prior posting) and apparatus photos from Lee Wilson. He's done great work capturing their rigs during annual beach visits over the last couple decades. The site still needs more images. That's something for someday. Maybe we'll see some submissions from readers or MCFD. But the historical information is tight 'n' right. And ready for feedback, from anyone with edits or additions or questions.
Historic Fire Trucks at Historic Oakwood This Weekend
The 43rd Annual Historic Oakwood Candlelight Tour is this weekend in downtown Raleigh. This year, the Society for the Preservation of Historic Oakwood is also saluting the firefighters who have also helped preserve property and save lives within the district. Raleigh Fire Department Historian Mike Legeros recently researched same and found some 125 working fires and over 200 smaller fires, from the late 1880s to present day. Read this blog posting to learn more. Or view his research documents: single-page summary (PDF) or full-report (PDF).
Four pieces of fire apparatus, from both Raleigh and local collectors, are planned to appear at the event, with the oldest on Saturday from 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. They'll also have 1950s model at the Tucker on Saturday. The following day will see a 1960s pumper. Engine 3 will also be visiting at various times during the weekend. The fire engines will be parking along the tour route.
The tour is Saturday and Sunday, from 1:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. each day. This is the 43rd annual tour. Twelve properties are available for viewing. See this tour map for more information. Or learn more on their Facebook page.
Car vs. Apartment Building, Driver vs. Jail
As this WTVD story reports, the deck and one wall of an apartment building at 4500 Oak Meadow Lane was destroyed around midnight, when his Jeep SUV left the roadway and struck the structure. The driver fled the scene (e.g. backed away and drove off) and was found at his home shortly after the crash. Says the story, the vehicle "had a busted windshield, scrapes, and still a large amount of debris" piled up on the hood. Including "nails, wood" and "even yard gloves from a storage shed." The driver was arrested. As the joke goes, but maybe he blew his horn first. See also this WRAL story.
Photographer Lee Wilson provides a couple local apparatus updates this week, via photographs from Corinth Holders Fire Department in Johnston County and Holly Springs Fire Department. As for other updates, readers are welcome to share their news. We posted an apparatus update for Wake County in October. What other updates do folks have, both here and in the greater Raleigh-Durham area?
Here's Corinth Holders' new Engine 3, a 2014 Spartan ERV MetroStar 1250/1000. Delivered to Station 1 on Wednesday, October 10. And yet another Spartan ERV for our area. They're making definite inroads in the central Piedmont! See more photos.

Here's Holly Springs' new Ladder 255 (renamed from Ladder 2, story there?), a 2001 Spartan Gladiator/Baker Aerialscope 2000/95-foot. From William Cameron Engine Company in Lewisburg, PA. See prior posting. Has been repainted red over black from its original eye-catching dark yellow. Photographed yesterday at Station 1. Still having equipment added and more lettering and striping. See more photos.
Also, Lee reports that the town's new Squad 1 was placed in service on Wednesday, October 10. That's a 2014 Spartan ERV MetroStar rescue pumper 1500/750/25 that was delivered in September. See prior posting.
