In the middle of one of the coldest winters on record, sometimes it’s comforting to look ahead and remember warmer times are just around the corner.

The Town of Kill Devil Hills is pleased to announce the release of “Kill Devil Hills Ocean Rescue,” a video highlighting the excellent work of the men and women who protect the Town’s beaches over the course of a busy summer season.

The video shows our lifeguards in action: everything from responding to emergency calls to helping out marine life.

Follow the lifeguards as they assist patrons in distress, contend with inclement weather, and try to keep the Town’s beaches safe for everyone to visit and enjoy.

This video breaks new ground in the Town’s ongoing campaign to bring important information to the public.

While entertaining, the video also seeks to educate the viewer about common beach hazards such as rip currents and heat exhaustion.

The video also serves as a recruitment tool for individuals who may be interested in working with Kill Devil Hills Ocean Rescue.

This project was entirely produced by Kill Devil Hills Police Sergeant John C. Towler, Jr. Kill Devil Hills Ocean Rescue will be aired on the Government Channel, cable channel 191, and also appears on Kill Devil Hills’ YouTube page, If you have any questions about the video or would like to speak to the Kill Devil Hills Ocean Rescue Supervisor, David Elder, please contact the Ocean Rescue office at (252) 480-0080.
