The old Fort Fisher Air Base fire station was two bays if I remember correctly. I was a grommet then. I think it had an old Mack CF Engine which they donated to Federal Point after they closed. I don’t think the building is still there.

When Ft. Fisher was an active operation there was one fire protection specialist (the fire chief) assigned to the station. He/she had about 15 augmentees (polite military term to tell you that you’re a volunteer) assigned to assist during fire operations. We got those people one day a month for training. Other duties for the chief were everything else that dealt with fire protection. I also had the additional duty of site safety officer. We had a 530B pumper (later replaced by a P-8D). If there was a fire they blew the base siren and everyone ran to the fire station and called operations on the phone to see where to go. It was definately an interesting assignment.
