Welcome to Archer Lodge Fire Department
The Archer Lodge Fire Department is an all volunteer fire department consisting of 45 members. We proudly protect approximately 8633 citizens living in the Archer lodge Fire district. We also provide mutual aid to our surrounding fire departments - Clayton, Thanksgiving, Cornith Holders, Wendell, and Eastern Wake. The fire insurance rating in our fire district is a DOI class 5 in a 5 mile radius from the fire station. We meet on the 1st and 3rd Monday night of every month for the required training hours and regular business meetings.
The Archer Lodge Fire Department operates with funds provided by fire tax, fundraisers, donations from the community, and funding from Johnston County. New members are required to complete approximately 150 hours of training before being placed on active duty. The department averages approximately 175O man-hours of training annually.
Each year the department holds a Fire Safety Education Day for the children, generally in late spring. The kids get to ride on the fire trucks, go through the Fire Safety House, and enjoy Sparky the Fire Dog and Smokey the Bear. Fire department personnel also visit the local schools each year teaching fire safety and distributing fire safety training materials to the students. These two functions have proved valuable at reducing fire accidents, injuries and fatalities within the fire district.
Anyone interested in becoming a member of the department is invited to stop by during one of the scheduled meetings and speak with the chief and pick up an application.
