Current Televisionin partnership with Dare County, has released a new video as part of its Destination Dare series that highlights upcoming renovation and improvement projects that three of Dare County’s EMS facilities will begin undergoing in the coming months.
Dare County EMS operates from eight stations, located at Kill Devil Hills, Nags Head, Southern Shores, Frisco, Rodanthe, Manns Harbor and Manteo, as well as the MedFlight Helicopter Hangar at Dare County Airport.
Due to the age of these facilities, as well as the increased demand for emergency services that has occurred in Dare County over the past several decades as the area has experienced an influx of residents and visitors , county officials have made renovating and upgrading these Dare County EMS stations a top priority.
These much-needed projects are expected to be completed in several phases over the next few years, the first of which includes the construction of three new EMS facilities:
- Station 1 at Kill Devil Hills
- Station 4 at Southern Shores
- Station 7 – Dare MedFlight Hangar on Roanoke Island
In addition to the construction of these new facilities, several other Dare County EMS stations will also undergo a series of renovations over the next few years, including:
- Station 2 at Manteo
- Frisco Station 3
- Station 8 at Manns Harbor
The goal of these upcoming projects is to help further improve Dare County EMS’ response to the influx of emergency calls received daily, as well as better support the department in its ongoing efforts to meet the needs of the community.
