Found on FireNews, a new fire station is rising in Havelock in Craven County, reports this Havelock News article. The $3.1 million "west end" station is located on Highway 70, and the entrance to the Tucker Creek subdivision. Ground was broken in March, and construction should take a year.

The article also informs that the town has received loans and grants totalling $900,000 for an ambulance, and the fire department's first ladder truck. HFD has accepted a bid from E-One, and the quint will be housed at the new station. The ambulance will replace an existing EMS unit.

Learn more about the Havelock Fire Department, including their history. They were organized in 1967, so the community was no longer dependent on either Cherry Point or Newport fire departments. There's also a page about the new station, which includes ongoing construction photos.
