Medical Emergencies:

Pamlico Rescue, based in Bayboro, responds to medical emergencies for all of Pamlico County and, for serious cases, provides  Advanced Life Support (ALS) and ambulance service for the County.

In the Southeast Pamlico VFD and Arapahoe VFD areas, a team of First Responders provides medical treatment until Pamlico Rescue ambulance arrives on the scene.

For major trauma cases Eastcare will airlift patients by helicopter to appropriate trauma centers.


We need volunteers for fire departments and for rescue. If you are 18 years or older, have a high school education and want to help, contact any of the fire and rescue squads or contact the Emergency Management Coordinator at the Pamlico County Courthouse for information on how to join.

Can we find you?

Your house or apartment number should be clearly visible from the road so that our emergency response team can find you at 2 o'clock in the morning.
