Ocracoke has had a quiet winter, Jason Daniels, captain of the Ocracoke Hyde County deputy sheriffs, reports.

Daniels recently gave a talk about island life to the Christian Aid Ministries volunteers who have been on the island since the fall helping to build and rebuild island homes destroyed by Hurricane Dorian.

“They had some very good questions,” Daniels said.

He also spent some time helping an islander regain his driver’s license by traveling to Washington, Beaufort County, with the man.

“I like helping people,” he said. “We’re about helping people.”

Daniels said he hopes to add a fifth deputy soon.

Daniels reported the following infractions from Dec. 1 to Feb. 15: one DWI; two damages to property; and one minor vehicle crash with no injuries.

The Ocracoke Volunteer Fire Department reported the following calls during the same period: two medical responders; one medevac; and two alarms for general assistance—one for a fuel spill at the gas station and one to help an individual who had fallen out of his boat at the NPS boat ramp.
