08/29/14 345 W - + 11 - 4 Former Fire Departments of Buncombe County

One of the reasons I'm excited about Brian Lawrence's book Firefighting in Buncombe County (see prior posting) is the information he's provided about former fire departments. That's a passion of mine, researching and documenting fire departments that are no longer around. Even have a database on my findings.

Needless to say, I will be parsing Brian's book in detail for details about Buncombe departments of yore. Looks like this is the line-up, when comparing his findings to mine. Will be reviewing and then updating my database.

This is awesome! Growing up in Western NC I didn’t even know about a few of these departments, especially West Asheville FD, Ridgecrest FD and Mount Pisgah Academy FD. I will definitely be purchasing the arcadia book.
