Sea Level Fire & Rescue provides an array of services which includes, Fire Protection and Prevention, Rescue Services, Emergency Medical Services, and a Community Center.
Each member of our department receives a minimum of 36 hours of training each year on the fire side and a minimum of 24 hours on the EMS Side.  Most members receive additional training above and beyond the minimum requirements.

Fire Prevention & Education

The Fire Department provides fire suppression to our primary fire district of Sea Level.  We work very hard with our neighboring departments of Atlantic Volunteer Fire Department, Stacy Volunteer Fire Department, Davis Volunteer Fire Department, and Cedar Island Volunteer Fire Department.  We are also responsible for prevention and safety.  We have given presentations to Atlantic School and provided fire prevention information at other functions in the district.  We provide static displays throughout the community as well.  We have the children tour our station every year in the month of October for Fire Prevention Week as well.


Rescue Services

The Rescue Services includes water rescue, search & rescue, and vehicle extrication.  We are the primary source of Rescue Services for the communities of Davis, Stacy, Sea Level, Atlantic, and Cedar Island.  These services are provided by both paid and volunteer staff.    Our unique location requires us to be well rounded and knowledgeable in many aspects of rescue.

Water Rescue
We provide Water Rescue by using a 20' Carolina Skiff to protect South Core Banks, Portsmouth, and surrounding waters.  We are typically called upon to assist the United States Coast Guard.  We have provided assistance to stranded and missing boaters, injured campers, missing or injured duck hunters, and overdue boaters and vacationers.  Our rescue services have assisted local military operations in the area.  Our water rescue unit provides Advanced life support when deployed.

Search & Rescue
We have several members in our department who are certified in search and rescue operations.  We have had to search for elderly and young alike.  We also have a SAR K9 handler on staff.

Vehicle Extrication
Our department is well experienced in many aspects of vehicle extrication.  We have tools capable of handling many different scenarios.  We have the ownly route from the main land to the NC Ferry Cedar Island to Ocracoke travel through our district.  This road is covered by marsh on both sides of the road in many places.  There is poor lighting over much of this road as well.  This creates a unique driving experiance for those who are not used to the area.


Emergency Medical Services

Our Emergency Medical Service is of premiere quality.  We have advanced life support caregivers on duty each day.  Our friendly staff is always available to take blood pressures, assist with many other medical needs, and transportation to local hospitals.  We have several
