Run Card for New Hope Woods Fire

Here’s the run card for New Hope Fire Department’s major woods fire last week, on Wednesday, May 29.

Some 50 acres were involved, and threatened some residential structures. The resources included 60 firefighters, 34+ pieces of apparatus, and a complete EMS box alarm with 16+ EMS personnel. 

The first units were dispatched at 5:02 p.m., with a fast-moving outside fire found in the area of an electric power transmission line easement, between Mitchell Mill and Old Milburnie roads. 

Command was located the Old Milburnie side, with New Hope Car 1 as Incident Commander, Rolesville Car 2 as Accountability, and Eastern Wake EMS District 6 as Medical Branch command.

Rolesville 203 was Operations Command, near the center of the fire. Wake Forest Car 6 and Battalion 3 were Aviation Branch, providing drone support starting about 60-70 minutes into the incident. 

Within 90 minutes into the incident, staging was moved to nearby New Hope Station 2. Medical monitoring and rehab was also established at that location. The New Hope FD Ladies Auxiliary also provided food and drinks to the weary firefighters. 

See photos from Legeros, of the support operations at the fire. He arrived about 45 minutes the incident started.
