Congrats to one of our own here on his promotion from Firefighter to Master Firefighter. Calvin Rowell put in a lot of time and hard work to achieve this goal and we look forward to watching him grow even more into the leader he is. Glad we get to work along side you, keep up the great work! -theOcho

** Master Firefighter is our driver position, when needed, the Master Firefighter can ride up to the Captain position.

Join us in congratulating recently promoted Calvin Rowell! He is now proudly serving Station 8 as a Master Firefighter.

Our friends over at NHCFR Station 16 got an upgrade today 😉.... just teasing, but it’s nice to be able to have a great working relationship with our neighboring department. While they were operating on a gas leak for multiple hours, Engine 8 went to stand by and cover their district. Teamwork is what the fire service is all about. 🇺🇸 #theOcho

Station 8 would like to wish you and your families a happy Thanksgiving! Being in this profession, sometimes we have to spend our holidays at the firehouse. Fortunately we are allowed to have our wonderful families join us. This year Captain Mike Kraft and his family adopted three marines to bring along for dinner. They supplied ALL of the food for us and our families. Grateful for this fire family! #thankful #wilmingtonnc

Station 8 last December worked with crews from New Hanover to remove a patient from a burning structure. This video was put together to bring awareness to the importance of company level training and to give the public a better idea of the conditions we face when we are inside. #firecam #trainyourprobie #ffprovinggrounds #readymove

One of the tough parts about being so close with your crew is it’s tough when it’s time for one to move on! It was a bittersweet shift for us on C Shift as it was FF Keller’s last ride with us. We loved working with him and created some great memories as a crew. He has been transferred to Rescue 2, C shift. We hate to see you go but are proud and excited to watch you continue to grow as a great firefighter! Goodluck and stay awesome! 🤙🏼🇺🇸 #station8makesyougr8 #theocho #wfd

Station 8 C shift is sending off a good man to another assignment. Shawn Johnson came to us straight out of rookie school eager as can be to learn and get involved. He had a really exciting probationary year, earning himself a Life Saving Award, Unit Accommodation Award, and the Medal of Valor. He put in a lot of work and inspired others at the station to get out and work hard, especially when it came to our workouts....(😑) We are very proud of you and want to wish you success with your new assignment on Engine 7 C Shift. You will be leaving us as not as a Probie but as a well deserved Firefighter. You will be missed. #ochoforlife #stationgr8 #readymove

Strong work this morning by C-Shift crews! First due E3 arrived with fire blowing out the 2nd floor A/B corner, stretched a line and made the push. E2 stretched a back up line and advanced to assist E3. R2 handled primary, Truck 8 laddered the structure and vented the roof. E8 established RIT, B1 took
Command and S2 established safety. Great job by all crews!! No civilian or firefighter injuries.
