Everyone is invited to come to the department to share some of the memories of the past 50 years and celebrate wha the fire department and community has achieved.

This is a thank you to the many people who have served in the department. It is a thank you to the people who have donated funds over the years and participated in the 10 years of the annual Firemen’s Balls.  For 50 years, Ocracoke residents and visitors have been there to help when needed.
