Whenever the subject of a fire department arises, interest invariably turns to the fire trucks and other equipment found within the department.
Perhaps this is so because it is the trucks that garner so much attention around town, whether just riding through the streets or responding with lights and sirens to an emergency call.
While on the surface it may seem like such abiding interest in the trucks is a superficial thing that is by no means the case. Cape Fear Rural Fire Department’s fire trucks represent a significant financial investment for the district, and it is right that the citizens, as well as the members of the department, take tremendous pride in them. They are your trucks, and they represent the community’s investment in the safety and welfare of its citizens.
