Chicamacomico Life-Saving Station needs volunteers to help celebrate 150 years of Life-Saving Service along the North Carolina coastline

By on November 2, 2023

Are you a local history buff? Are you a descendant of a US Lifesaving Service or early Coast Guard member? Are you new to the area and simply want to get involved in the community? Chicamacomico Life-Saving Station has something for you.

Chicamacomico is spearheading the 2024 celebration of 150 years of professional lifesaving on the Outer Banks and in North Carolina. We have already garnered participation and support from NPS and Black Pelican to highlight the 3 remaining stations.

We are seeking grassroots involvement to present the histories of the other stations, as well as to support a year- long series of events and presentations honoring this amazing legacy. This year-long celebration will culminate in a series of honorary events in October 2024.

LEARN MORE: Friday, November 24, 2023 from 2 – 5 pm

On Friday, November 24, 2023 Chicamacomico Life-Saving Station will host our annual Thanksgiving/ Christmas event and visit by Santa. That same day, Chicamacomico Board of Director members, staff and volunteers will be on site to answer questions and glean information from you, the general public to see in what capacity you can help us present this important history.

If you are unable to attend on that date and time, but wish to be involved, please reach out to Chicamacomico for an information packet to look over at your convenience. Call Chicamacomico at 252-987-1552 or email

This is a request for one year of involvement. If you wish to continue after that, great. We can assure you there is always plenty to do, but no obligation is attached to your willingness to support this event.

In 1874, the UNITED STATES LIFESAVING SERVICE erected stations at Jones Hill, Caffey’s Inlet, Kitty Hawk, Nags Head, Bodie Island, Chicamacomico, and Little Kinnakeet.

Of these original 7 stations, 3 remain;

  • Chicamacomico, a non-profit historical and living history site and museum.
  • Little Kinnakeet, an NPS holding,
  • and Kitty Hawk, now the Black Pelican Restaurant.
