The Stoney Point Volunteer Fire Department was founded in 1964 and proudly serves not only our community, but also the City of Fayetteville, town of Hope Mills, and surrounding counties since. We are a full-service provider, and deliver emergency medical, rescue and fire protection services. Our department is internationally accredited with the Commission on Fire Accreditation International (CFAI), achieving initial accreditation in 2012 and re-accredited in 2017. Stoney Point is currently one of only two volunteer fire departments in the United States listed on the Commission on Fire Accreditation International (CFAI) Accredited Fire/Rescue Agencies Web site.
Stoney Point responds from two facilities, stations 13 and 19. We house five pumper/tankers, one heavy rescue walk-in, one 75-foot aerial device, one heavy-duty brush truck, a quick response medical vehicle, two rescue boats, mobile support air trailer, a 500-gallon foam trailer, and two prime mover units. Ninety percent of our membership consists of dedicated volunteers with a total departmental membership of over 100 personnel. Many of our members are state-qualified fire officers, firefighters, driver/operators with pump and aerials specialties, emergency vehicle drivers, and fire life safety educators.
All firefighters receive medical first responder training, while 50% of our membership is trained at the North Carolina Emergency Medical Technician level. Several more hold North Carolina Paramedic credentials.
In 2017, our fire department responded to over 1600 requests for assistance. Approximately 50% of those calls were structural, grass/woods, or vehicle fires, false alarms and service calls while the remaining 50% were emergency medical incidents and vehicle accidents. The department is supported by a strong and dedicated volunteer auxiliary providing supplementary and financial support in the furtherance of our emergency response.

Hurricane Florence is a very real and dangerous threat to the Stoney Point community. Governor Roy Cooper declared a state emergency Friday, 7 September to facilitate crop harvesting and other agricultural needs. At time of posting, Hurricane Florence is a Category 4 storm with winds in excess of 130 MPH. Florence is projected to bring high winds, heavy rain, and high storm surge to the coastal and inland areas. Unique to Florence and the hazard it poses to the Stoney Point area is a high pressure center in the Ohio valley. Forecasters have indicated this high pressure may completely stall the storm over central North Carolina, resulting in rain accumulations of 12 to 18 inches – which will result in flooding.
If you have not already begun making preparations to weather the storm, please do so immediately. This is an incredibly dangerous storm and it poses an enormous threat to the area.
