ADR Fire-Rescue Riegelwood, NC


 

WELCOME TO A-D-R FIRE-RESCUE'S WEBPAGE. WE HAVE BEEN IN OPERATION FOR NEARLY 50 YEARS. THE DEPARTMENT FIRST STARTED OUT AS A VOLUNTEER RESCUE SQUAD, BECAUSE OF A TRAGGIC ACCIDENT. LATER, THE LATE JOHN RIEGEL, THE FOUNDER OF RIEGEL PAPER, BUILT THE FIRE STATION ON JOHN RIEGEL ROAD, IN 1959. AT THAT SAME TIME, HE PURCHASED A 1960 INTERNATIONAL/CENTRAL PUMPER, TO PROTECT THE CITIZENS IN THE SANITARY DISTRICT, AS WELL AS THE PAPER MILL. THE ORIGINAL TWO BAYS AND PART OF THE BUILDING, IS THE FOUNDATION OF THE 9 BAY STATION. WE ARE PROUD OF THE COMMUNITY FOR SUPPORTING US IN OUR TRIALS OF LOWERING THE FIRE INSURANCE RATING, SUPPORTING US TO GET A SECOND STATION ON LIVINGSTON CHAPEL ROAD IN DELCO, AND IN 2010, THE 3RD STATION TO BE LOCATED ON WOODYARD ROAD, IN THE TOWN OF SANDYFIELD, WORKING CLOSELY WITH ITS TOWN BOARD, TO ACCOMPLISH THIS GOAL. THE DEPARTMENT HAS BEEN BLESS WITH FUNDS FROM THE COMMUNITY TO PURCHASE THE EQUIPMENT THAT WE HAVE AND ARE PROUD TO DISPLAY IT ON OUR WEBSITE. FEEL FREE TO STOP BY AND AMAZE YOURSELF AT OUR EQUIPMENT,"FOR IT IS NOT OURS, BUT OUR COMMUNITIES."
