According to a report from WBTV, the Salisbury (NC) Fire Department (SFD) will dedicate its new Fire Station #6—the Monroe and Isler Fire Station—on Sunday, March 7.
The station is named after SFD members Justin Monroe and Victor Isler, who died in the line of duty in 2008 fighting a fire at the Salisbury Millworks. Located at 310 Cedar Springs Road, the new station will house a training wing, the hazmat team, and the fire operations staff.
Planning for the new station started in 2017 to service areas in the growing, southern part of the city.
The families of the fallen firefighters will be present at the event.
A virtual “Open House” link will be available on the City of Salisbury Web site where “attendees” will be able to tour the fire station online. For more information on the dedication, visit salisburync.gov/Fire.
