Hatteras Island Emergency Services

While many folks are used to locally funded emergency services with paid employees, such as police, fire and EMT, some of Hatteras Island's services are volunteer only. Like in the days of the Chicamacomico Life Saving Station, water and fire rescue are 100% volunteer-based, with bravely trained islanders risking their lives to save the lives of others, locals and visitors alike.
