Station 1 replaced the former Fire Station 1 located at 801 Evans Street. This station sits about 1/2 mile from the intercoastal waterway. Hurricanes and flooding were major issues with the station design. The structure was designed to withstand winds of 125 m.p.h. and special hurricane shutters were designed to protect windows and doors and a reinforced room was also added for extra emergency shelter.
Station #2, built in 2012, is the newest functioning fire station in Morehead City, replacing the old Fire Station 2 at 3308 Arendell Street. The new station houses the Department’s Administrative Offices, a Conference/Training Room, and the Department’s Workout Room. It also quarters a satellite Police Station and a County Magistrate’s office.
Fire Station 3 was placed into service in 2007 through a partnership with Wildwood Fire Dept. Cooperation between the two departments has allowed for faster responses and improved services in the western end of Morehead City’s Fire district.
