Next in our series of posts about new Charitocracy OBX nominees, we have nominee KDH Fire Auxiliary, nominated by donor
John Towler. They support the mission of the Kill Devil Hills Fire Department in a variety of ways, including fighting fires. You can find the department's web site here.
A few words on Charitocracy
Firstly, for newcomers: here's how it works. Donors pool their monthly contributions, as little as $1. The cause with the most votes each month wins the pot. No matter how much or how little you contribute, each donor at Charitocracy gets one vote. This is where charity meets democracy. So please share this post (see social sharing icons at top of post) and ask your friends to join us and vote! That's how we spread the word and, as a result, grow the monthly pot. The bigger the pot, the bigger our positive impact on the world!
About nominee KDH Fire Auxiliary
Kill Devil Hills' Fire Department is a combination department protecting a coastal resort community. We are proud of our ISO rating of 3! Our staffing model consists of well-trained, dedicated career and volunteer professionals. The duty crews, or career team members, are tasked with emergency response duties 24-hours a day, 365 days of the year. They handle daily workload operations and maintenance tasks to ensure the department is in a constant state of readiness. Maintaining training requirements is also an important part of ensuring readiness, and ensuring safety requirements are met. Our reserve firefighters - volunteers - provide the necessary additional staffing and are a vital part of our emergency response model. This model is a balanced approach to meeting requirements for today's fire service.
We invite you to visit the station, come on in and meet our duty crews. Our team members will gladly show you around.
