Salisbury City Fire Department to have new station groundbreaking

SALISBURY — The Salisbury Fire Department will have a groundbreaking ceremony Tuesday for the new fire station No. 6 at 3 p.m. The ceremony is open to the public. The new fire station will be located at 310 Cedar Springs Road, Salisbury.

The station’s primary fire response district will be the incorporated areas south of the Mid-Carolina Airport. The city purchased the property specifically for the fire station project in early 2017. The station will be named in honor of fallen firefighters Vic Isler and Justin Monroe. The men died while battling a 2008 fire at Salisbury Millworks.

Monroe, 19, who was a firefighter with the city of Salisbury, was also a volunteer with Spencer Fire Department and a lieutenant with Millers Ferry Fire Department. He started his career as a junior firefighter.

Isler, 40, was a volunteer in Long Island‚ New York, for many years and worked for the New York Fire Department as an EMT. He assisted at ground zero after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11. He fulfilled his dream of becoming a professional firefighter with the Salisbury Fire Department.
