ADR Fire-Rescue Riegelwood, NC

WELCOME TO A-D-R FIRE-RESCUE’S WEBPAGE.

IN 1950, THE DEPARTMENT FIRST STARTED OUT AS A VOLUNTEER RESCUE SQUAD, BECAUSE OF A TRAGIC ACCIDENT. THEN IN 1959, THE LATE JOHN RIEGEL, FOUNDER OF RIEGEL PAPER, BUILT THE FIRE STATION ON JOHN RIEGEL ROAD. 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. IN 1963, ACME-DELCO-RIEGELWOOD FIRE-RESCUE WAS ESTABLISHED. THEN WAS INCORPORATED IN 1973.

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 IN 2009.

IN 2011, A 3RD STATION  ON WOODYARD ROAD, IN THE TOWN OF SANDYFIELD, WAS BUILT.

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.”
