Abstract:
Before 1960, fires on the Hatteras Island were attended to by concerned villagers who would save what they could. But the people realized that there needed to be something else they could do. With the help of some regional fire chiefs and money raised by the community, a fire house and engine were finally on the Island. Now the fire department consists of 50-60 well-trained fire fighters and five pieces of fire fighting apparatus from the villages of Buxton, Frisco, and Hatteras.
