Our members consist of devoted individuals from diverse backgrounds. Some are employed by the NC Department of Transportation Ferry Service while others are charter & commercial fishermen, EMTs, former educators, home builders, motel owners and tourist industry workers. They all work together to maintain a North Carolina fire insurance classification of 6.

The Ocracoke community demonstrates its pride in their fire department by providing additional manpower and supplies when needed and by participating in fire department sponsored events such as Bingo, barbecues, and our annual Memorial Day Weekend Firemen's Ball.  We welcome you to explore our website and discover more about the

The Ocracoke Volunteer Fire Department provides service for a small island community of approximately 800 permanent residents. During the annual vacation season the island population can swell to 10,000 visitors on a daily basis. This population increase presents a unique challenge to our small volunteer fire department. Working with the National Park Service and Hyde County EMS, we provide coverage for fires, accidents, medivac, rescues and other emergencies.
