Day 2 of Driver Operator Day for NHCFR Engineers. This was the day for A Shift FFAOs to review skills and learn the same skills that were taught yesterday. We observed a moment of silence and spoke some emotional words remembering Captain David Heath on this 7th anniversary.

Remembering Captain Heath on this day. #NHCFR

Nice graphic that's making the rounds on the anniversary of David Heath's death. The New Hanover County Fire Rescue Captain--and former Raleigh FD member, 1996 to 1999--died of a heart attack while participating in training on October 14, 2013.

Is the burn ban still in effect for our county?
I am a Crisis Coordinator with Citizens Assisting Citizens, but I was also a volunteer firefighter and EMS worker, in Nes Hanover County, for several years. I wanted to pass this along, in hopes that our community might be able to help this Department in some manner. https://www.facebook.com/660749010618311/posts/4024883797538132/?sfnsn=mo&extid=z15XEKSUvyNmVLYG
Vinyard Plantation in Porters Neck loves our Fire Fighters! Thank you and God Bless you all! Ogden Station at Porters Neck
Tonight my neighborhood, NorthChase, will be “Lighting up NorthChase” with red and blue lights, on our homes. We are doing this in honor of those lost on 9/11 and also as a show of support for our first responders. We want you to know we appreciate you and realize that you have been under tremendous stress for months. We want to make our Firefighters aware we are doing this, so they can ride through and possibly bring their families to see the lights. We will keep them on display for at least 3 days. God bless every single one of you! ❤️🚒❤️
Send some trucks our way today if you can!
Thank you to NHC for making a birthday special. My 5yo thanks you and totally made this a memorable birthday. We thank you for your service and wish you a safe tour.
Why are first responders, when 911 is called, refusing to go into buildings?
