Smokey Bear Has Been Located



Broad River Volunteer Fire & Rescue is pleased to offer its community a place to dispose of used cooking oil. The container is located beside the main station in a well lit area and available 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Blue Ridge Biofuels will routinely empty the container so that the oil may be used for other purposes. There is a sign located at the bin which should answer any questions. We hope everyone will take advantage of this recycling program and tour the station while you are here.




  Can emergency responders find you Day & Night? Help us to better serve You. Please ensure your home has a visible address marker. Markers are available at the Fire Station and can be made while you wait. The life they save may be your own. Under Buncombe County Fire Prevention Code all homes are required to have visible address numbers.
