01/01/10 90 W, 1 I - + 17 - 9 Winter Park Public Hearing Notice, 1985

Here's a random artifact from the classified section of the Wilmington Star-News on May 19, 1985. The Winter Park Fire Department asking all county taxpayers to attending a public hearing relating to fire tax allocations. WPPD served areas outside Wilmington from 1951 to 2005. Their station-- or last station location-- was at 4601 Park Avenue. They had a 6,000 gallon tractor-drawn tanker that was hard to miss, when passing through town. Still researching that area's former fire departments. More later.

One other interesting bit about Winter Park. After closing, the department donated their remaining funds ($114,527!) to Cape Fear Community College, to purchase firefighting equipment for the college’s new Public Safety Training Center that was built in 2007.
