Stonebridge is about six miles from the Fleetwood Fire Station so the POA of Stonebridge decided to have water tanks installed in case of the unfortunate likelihood of a fire. To date they have completed 3 water tank installations. The tanks were filled with water and landscaped. Each installation has 6 tanks with about 1,000 gallons of water in each. The committee inspects all water tanks on a regular basis. Total available water is 18,000 gallons plus the pond near the entrance to Stonebridge as water sources for firefighting. There are plans for another water tank to be installed this year and also for emergency exits to be made.
Elevations begin somewhere in the 3,400 range and climb to 4,600 on the highest ridges. Homes are nestled in trees, some offer streams with small waterfalls while the homes atop the ridges offer breathtaking long-range views of the surrounding Blue Ridge Mountain.
