This is the old 854 on scene of a bus accident
In 1961, the Mount Airy Rescue Squad was established. The first station was at Cherry Street and Renfro Street. The first truck was a Civil Defense truck and it only cost $6,200. That year the department responded to 5 calls. In 1965 the department moved to the old railroad depot on Granite Street. In 1970 the department moved to the current building on Frederick Street and responded to, on average, 200 calls a year. The department began holding fundraisers to buy a new truck that cost $100,000. The Great Flood of 1979 was a natural disaster that everyone will remember. In the early 1990's another disaster struck the city. Carolina Propane had an accident with a small leak that lead to an explosion. In 2008 an airplane crash in Holly Springs resulted in the death of 6 people. 2011 was the 50th anniversary of the Mount Airy Rescue Squad which unveiled the newest rescue truck, a 2011 International. In the year of 2011, the department responded to 1,875 calls. Calls rose to over 3,000 in 2015.
