The Town of Pine Knoll Shores is in the process of hiring an Emergency Services Director who will
supervise all Emergency Services Departments. The Board of Commissioners lias been considering this
position for some time in their long range planning for the protection of the Town. The Director will assist and

of EMS, Emergency Management and Fire. With the ever-changing commissioners and volunteer chiefs, this
position will also provide the much-needed continuity with the various volunteer departments.
Pine Knoll Shores is a very fortunate community to have the caring and concerned volunteers who are
willing to give their time and skills to assist their “neighbors.” Your Board of Commissioners wants this
unselfish community spirit to continue. This position will be an asset to the very best EMS, Emergency
Management and Fire Departments in the county and state.
