    FD's that I know of, going from NORTH to SOUTH, geographically:

    -Duck
    -Corolla
    -Southern Shores
    -Kill Devil Hills
    -Kitty Hawk
    -Nags Head

    On Roanoke Island,
    -Manteo

    (SOUTH of Oregon Inlet)
    -Rodanthe
    -Salvo
    -Avon
    -Buxton
    -Frisco
    -Hattaras

    Then you have Ocracoke Island, with just the Ocracoke FD.

    A very close friend is Asst Chief and Pres of the BOD at Avon if you are interested, but Avon is way south of Nags Head.

    That is a little farther than I want to commute. But thanks anyway.

    I just got a confirmed start date of my new job, it will be April 21st.

    I have about 2 months to find a house to rent and get moved down there!!

    Nags Head have a volunteer dept. but they aren't utilized much and may even be ditched in the next few years (they run 2 paid trucks, soon to be three). All the other town have good volunteer programs, including Roanoke Island (all volunteer, 2 stations), Kill Devil Hills, Colington, and Kitty Hawk (one paid engine crew, 1 station). Volunteers are alerted to all fire/rescue calls, as 99% of the EMS assist calls are handled by the paid guys. Volunteer stations are usually only toned out to EMS calls if requested by EMS.
