Legislation Proposed for Fairview Fire District

Here’s some surprising news. Local legislation has been introduced to the North Carolina General Assembly, to remove the Fairview (Ten Ten) Fire District from the governance and jurisdiction of Wake County. It was introduced on November 28 by Representative Nelson Dollar.  

Read the text of the House Bill (broken). 

Recall that the department has been strongly critical of a recent county proposal, to close Fairview Station 2 at a future date, and deliver service to that district from a new Garner fire station. 

This posting has also been posted on the Facebook side, with this discussion prompt: Readers, please unpack and react. Curious on thoughts on (a.) what will happen and (b.) what this bodes for the future of Wake County fire governance.
