If the fire has already spread, professional aid is absolutely needed, which can be rendered via helicopter or by ship. The main portable means of fire fighting equipment are the different types of hand held extinguishers. Fire buckets, for many years recogised equipment, have been replaced on all but the smallest vessels with more effective portable extinguishers- expelling water, foam, C0¨2, Halon and dry powder.

The volunteer fire companies such as the Vigilants, Juniors, Friendship, and Alerts provided protection against fire for the city. The year also marks 125 years of organized firefighting in Roanoke: February is the 100th anniversary of the opening of Fire Station No. 1, while March marks the 100th anniversary of a fully paid fire department. Roanoke’s fire service has changed quite a bit since the days of hand-pulled hose wagons and makeshift alarm bells. Being a Roanoke firefighter has always been an honorable profession.
