Training

Buies Creek Fire Dept had water rescues training at Campbell University's aquatic center. It was a time to learn and play. Members took turns rescuing each other using throw ropes and calming techniques we might need in real life scenarios.  Buies Creek's district borders the Cape Fear river, along with the aquatic center and other residential pools this training may in fact be needed due to the extreme heat. 

 


New Equipment

7-11-11 Buies Creek fire dept will be receiving a new thermal imagine camera. A Scott Eagle 320 imager with the pak-tracker feature will be the newest piece of equipment we get to use. Thermal imagine devices have a multitude of uses in the fire service from finding fire extension in a house fire to finding a person that was thrown from a vehicle.


What's New

With the new budget year underway Buies Creek has taken a step forward in providing EMS services to the people of Buies Creek. With and increase call volume and a number of changes from the state for EMS coverage chief Rose requested the Board of Directors to hire three full time shift employees. These 3 employees will handle all first duty EMS calls that come out within their 24 hours work day. They will be house at Buies Creek fire station with the hope of having a Harnett County paramedic on our ambulance in the coming months. The three new employees are:

Brian Pope (A shift) from Garner Vol. Fire Dept

Dustin Wallace (B shift) from Erwin Fire Dept

Josh Hargrove (C shift) from Lillington Fire Dept

We look forward to having these three join our Dept and seeing what the future holds.
