Save Fairview Fire Station #2!

For over 55 years, Fairview Fire Department has been here for the citizens of Wake County NC, fighting fires, helping out in storms and natural disasters, and saving lives. Now it’s our turn to help them in their time of need.

How Can I Help?

The price of freedom is eternal vigilance. Right now the best we can do is keep an eye on our county leaders and look out for any actions that relate to our fire district. I’ll post updates to this blog from time to time letting you know what is going on and what specific actions would be helpful.

You won’t get messages very often unless there is some kind of urgent action going on. Typically it is weeks between updates.

What is this all about?

We citizens of Wake County had a narrow escape in Summer of 2018 when county employees attempted to push through a plan to shut down our Fairview Fire Station #2 that provides us emergency service. It was only a major show of force, with hundreds of you citizens showing up at the August 2018 Fire Commission meeting that turned the tide and caused them to table those plans and “study” it some more.

Right now the county is beginning its long term planning process with a work session Thursday, January 3, 2019. Stay tuned.


Your neighbor, David

Our firefighters are serve us faithfully. They need our support.
