Our friends at Ferrells Fire Rescue in Nash County pass along photos of a unique special unit. Below is FireDog One, a mobile hot dog stand that's the brainchild of Ferrells Fire Rescue Auxiliary President Robbie Tippett. During the department's last fundraiser, a golf tournament at Zebulon Country Club, a stationary hot dog stand served hungry golfers. This worked well for those near the stand, and not so good for those out on the course. Robbie was in charge of the event, and had an idea: make the hot dog stand mobile.

Some weeks later, he spotted an EZ Go XI-875 Industrial Burden Carrier at a government surplus warehouse on Garner Road. The Auxiliary purchased same and provide Robbie with a budget. The unit is nearly completed, and is expected to make its first public appearance at a Ferrells Firemen's Day fundraiser this Saturday, Sept. 19. For those in and around rural Nash County, the fire station is located at 9589 West NC 97 in Middlesex. And serving BBQ pork and chicken, too! Click to enlarge:
