08/17/10 204 W, 1 I - + 10 - 8 How Many Airport Fire Stations in North Carolina?


You knew this question was coming. So how many crash-fire-rescue stations are around the state? Here's what parsing the Carolinas Fire Page list of fire stations finds, along with some from memory. And some Wiki pages and FAA airport diagrams, linked below. All are PDF format.

How much would RFD love to take over the RDU stations to keep up with Charlotte?
Spanky - 08/18/10 - 15:11

That was talked about (informally) way back when. But since RDU is owned by Raleigh AND Durham, as well as Wake and Durham Counties, that could get complicated. I’m pretty sure that the city of Charlotte owns CLT. That’s why they provide the ARFF service, much like Chicago, Atlanta, etc.

Raleigh can’t take over the airport due the fact that RDU is a township of a sort. The ARFF business is very complex in many ways. The City of Raleigh would not want the many headaches that comes with it. But it would be nice to have more ARFF personnel at the airport per shift.

Do airport fire dogs go “arff?”

There would have been a CFR station at New Bern since Piedmont Airlines used to fly in there. Probably no more than a small twin agent unit at the time, but they would have been required by the FAA to have CFR equipment on the field.

Yes, as I recall, their main terminal building has an apparatus bay for what I think is a small twin-agent unit. At least, what I recall seeing parked in there some years ago. The airport is known as Coastal Carolina Regional Airport.

For extra credit, which three airports were known, respectively, as Grannis Field, Stallings Field, and Simmons-Knot Field?
DJ - 01/10/11 - 13:49

Grannis Field was the former name of Fayetteville Regional Airport, which changed sometime in the 70’s, I think?

Stallings Field is now known as Kinston Regional Jetport, or the Global Transpark Airfield — depends on who you talk to.

That last one, I’ve never heard of. And I have flown a whole lot of places here in North Carolina over the years. But 2 out of 3 ain’t bad, so sayeth the song.

Simmons-Nott was the New Bern airport. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coastal_Car..
