Below is the Havelock Fire Department's
West End Fire Station that's being completed on Highway 70 at Tucker Creek. As this FireNews article reports
, completion is due in March. The $3.5 million, three-bay station will house the department's first ladder truck1
, an E-One quint that's due for delivery about the same time. HFD has also taken delivery of a 2009 Ford E-450/Wheeled Coach ambulance. Medic 234 is one of four paramedic ambulances operated by the city. And it's the first such red rig. The others are white. The $110,000 vehicle included an additional $50,000 of equipment, including an AutoPulse unit that can perform chest compressions. Like the E-One in production, the new Medic unit will also be stationed at the new station.

1What aerial apparatus has the fire department at the Cherry Point Marine Corps Air Station operated over the years and decades? As their web site indicates, they currently have three stations, with apparatus including two pumpers, a telesquirt, a heavy rescue, and a light rescue/brush truck. Then there's the Crash Fire Rescue department, which has its own station and equipment, correct?
