::Raleigh Fire Dept. Revisits The Past

By R.Gregg, Raleigh Chronicle Editor In Chief
Tuesday, May 22, 2007

RALEIGH - Last Saturday, the Raleigh Fire Department celebrated its past as it welcomed retired fire department veterans and their families at the Keeter Training Center off of Wilmington Street.

The day-long event allowed Raleigh's current fire crews to meet with retired firefighters and learn from their years of experience and maybe hear some harrowing tales of fighting fires in Raleigh's past.

At the same time, retired firefighters got to see the latest in high-tech gear including the Raleigh Fire Department's fire-fighting equipment such as ladder trucks, the hazardous materials tractor trailer, swift water rescue boats, urban rescue teams, decontamination tents, and more.

Of course, the department's older collection of vehicles were among the most popular exhibits including fire engines from the 1920's and 1950's.

It was evident from the smiles and friendly greetings that many of the fire department retirees had not seen each other in years, so the opportunity to meet again with fire fighting brothers and sisters was a precious time for the fire department family.

In addition to lots of great outdoor exhibits, the department had a history room with newspaper clippings, photo displays, and even videos.

Firefighters and their families also enjoyed a great barbeque lunch with desserts provided by the families.  The firefighter grill crew had started cooking at 3am that morning in anticipation of the large Raleigh Fire Department family. 

Whether they served in the past or whether they go in harm's way currently, the Raleigh firefighters and their families continue to have strong ties throughout their decades of service to the citizens of Raleigh.  ::
