The Emerald Isle Fire Department oversees the Town's beach lifeguard program, and all Fire and lifeguard personnel receive extensive water rescue training and respond to numerous calls each summer. The period from July 22 - August 1 included dangerous ocean conditions, and was particularly busy for water rescues. Town staff rescued a total of 84 individuals during this time period, and participated in numerous educational interactions with beach visitors.
The Town is proud of our water rescue team, and greatly appreciates their heroic efforts!
