Our thoughts and prayers are with The Turkey Fire Department, in Sampson county.

It is with a heavy heart and great sadness that I have to announce the Sudden and unexpected passing of one of our own. LT Andy Butler.
Andy never knew a stranger. If anything needed to be done he would come he was friend to many of us and he Loved his Fire Station I am at a complete loss for words and hoping this is just a bad dream which I know it isn’t. This is something I never thought I would have to do as a Chief ever it is surely going to be different around here not seeing Andy at lunch everyday or every afternoon when he got off work or just the occasional phone call saying ( Chief what’s up you need any help or hey let’s go to 40 and get something to eat ).

Please pray for Andy , his family and keep the Members and Staff of Turkey Vol Fire in your thoughts and prayers in the coming days

Thank you for your service and dedication Andy I will surely miss you my friend. ( Chief )

@ 1125 on Thanksgiving morning, while others were preparing to eat lunch, Kenansville Fire dept responded to a reported smoke alarm inside of an occupied apartment. Upon arrival, the homeowner met our Engine-3 crew, reporting a kitchen fire. Investigation revealed an already extinguished fire, thanks to the AES in the apartment. This is proof that not all alarms are false. Today, we are thankful that this fire was no worse than it was, and happy to report no injuries.

MILITARY TRAINING IN KENANSVILLE, ROSE HILL SEPT 27 - OCT 15

The 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit will conduct a training exercise
on military installations in Virginia and North Carolina from Sept. 27 to Oct. 15, 2020, as part of regularly-scheduled training in preparation for an overseas deployment.

Training events will take place in South Boston and Chase City, Va., along with Kenansville, Rose Hill, and Elizabethtown, N.C.

This exercise has been coordinated over the past eight months with the following entities: elected officials (federal, state, county, city); law enforcement agencies (federal, state, county, city); fire and Emergency Medical Services agencies (county, city); and private and corporate property owners and managers.

Training of this type has occurred on military installations since 1985.

This training will most likely be unnoticed by the majority of the population. The public can expect to possibly see or hear the following: military aircraft overflying the area, a limited number of military vehicles in the area, and role players (Marines) in Middle Eastern attire at selected sites.

The daytime activities (8 a.m. to 6 p.m.) are unobtrusive and the nighttime activities (6 p.m. to midnight) will also be unobtrusive but may consist of: helicopters flying over the area, Marines, and Sailors on the ground at isolated areas, and blank gunfire. During the training events, local law enforcement may cordon training areas for a limited period of time to ensure that military personnel, vehicles, and aircraft do not interfere with civilian activities and vice-versa. Road closures will be kept to a minimum (with regards to location and duration).

Local citizens should not approach any of the military personnel. Every effort has been made to isolate the Marines and Sailors from the general population so the training scenario can be executed without mishap or interference.
