Commissioner Causey to attend ‘hose uncoupling’ ceremony, groundbreaking in Fayetteville on Monday

Sep 16, 2022

North Carolina Insurance Commissioner Mike Causey, who also serves as State Fire Marshal, will join local and state officials for a “hose uncoupling” ceremony and groundbreaking on Monday, Sept. 19, beginning at 2 p.m. at the FTCC-Cumberland County Regional Fire & Rescue Training Center in Fayetteville.

The hose uncoupling at 2 p.m. is the firefighting version of a ribbon cutting. Commissioner Causey will join state and local leaders to uncouple short sections of a fire hose to mark the grand opening of the new 24,000 square-foot building. The new facility is part of a 30-acre complex that will provide state-of-the-art training programs for fire and rescue emergency personnel.

The groundbreaking ceremony at 3 p.m. will mark the beginning of construction for a new indoor Swift Water Rescue Training Center. This will be the only indoor facility of its kind on the East Coast of the United States -- allowing first responders to train year-round for water rescues.
