Our History

On July 1, 2017 the Bay Leaf Volunteer Fire Department and the Stony Hill Rural Fire Department consolidated and became “Northern Wake Fire Department”.  

The members of both organizations worked collectively and tirelessly toward this goal.  Northern Wake Fire Department is a new and exciting public safety organization, anchored by a combined 115 years of rich history and outstanding community service.  Both organization’s closely aligned standards and shared values have allowed us to design an even better fire and rescue organization, one that will be filled with exciting opportunities in the future.
