A Duplin County volunteer fire department has been awarded a grant of $24,185. The grant for Faison Fire and Rescue comes from the 2024 Volunteer Fire Department Fund from the State of North Carolina. Fire Chief Carlton Lee Kennedy plans to use the funds to purchase more equipment that is needed. “Fire and rescue organizations protect our communities large and small across North Carolina, but sometimes their budgets don’t grow with their responsibilities,” said State Fire Marshal Brian Taylor. “Our emergency service personnel should be supported with the best equipment and supplies needed to do their jobs correctly and safely.” Faison Fire and Rescue has been awarded a total of $258,409.85 from the Volunteer Fire Department Fund since the program began in 1988.
