Box 1971 was formed with the intent to educate firemen (men or women).  By utilizing over 136 + years of experience, education, and practical job knowledge, we are able to help firemen retain knowledge and job specific skills.  



Box 1971 was named  by combining a Gamewell Fire Alarm Box, and the 1971 Mack CF600 that the company owned.  The Mack served the citizens of Raleigh, North Carolina, and is now retired.  The engine was sold in the Summer of 2016 to a private collector in Raleigh/Durham.


Box 1971  owns a Mack CF600 Baker Aerialscope 75' Tower ladder, which is used for classes.  The ladder is fully functional,  annually certified , has SCBAs, and a compliment of tools .  Tower Ladder 71 began its service in Chesterfield, Virginia; and was purchased as it was being retired from Ruckersville, Virginia.  It now has it's own Firehouse (71) at the Headquarters of Box 1971.

Favorite Quote:

"I have a dream, it's just a little dream.  My dream- and I hope that you do not find this too crazy- is that God forbid there were a fire, calling the fire department would actually be a wise thing to do.  You cannot have people, if their houses are burning down saying 'whatever you do, do not call the fire department.....that would be bad."
