Welcome to New Salem Volunteer Fire Dept


The intersection of Highway 218 and Highway 205 was officially closed as of Saturday, August 24, 2019 to install a roundabout.

We encourage everyone to spread the word to your friends and family. We are still seeing a lot of people disregard the road closure signs and driving full speed up to the intersection. This is extremely dangerous. Please use caution.  


The closure will last approximately 8 weeks. 

We have worked with NCDOT and the contractors on site performing the work to ensure we will be able to have a very short detour and not hinder our response times to our coverage areas North and East of the intersection. If you have any questions, please fill out the contact form on our "Contact Us" page. Please see the below link for more information regarding the construction and detours. 




We have also postponed our 2019 Open House until after construction is complete and the intersection is back open. We anticipate this will take place in October, but will post updates here and our facebook page.
