Town of Kure Beach to Hold American Cross Blood Drive

Donating blood is a way to give back. Whether you’re donating for a friend or a family member, or just because you feel it’s the right thing to do to help someone else out, giving blood can be a rewarding experience; knowing that you’ve helped change or save a life. Not to mention, blood is something most people have to spare, so when you give blood you’re helping keep blood on the shelf for those who need it an emergency. And if that’s not enough, donors get free juice and yummy cookies!


Kure Beach to Hold Adult CPR, AED, and First Aid Certification Class in March

Now is your chance to learn how you can save a life. The Town of Kure Beach will host an Adult CPR, AED, and First Aid certification class on Saturday, March 4, 2017 at the Community Center. 

The class will run from 10:30am until 3:30pm and provide the opportunity to earn an American Heart Association certification. Kure Beach’s State Fire Instructor, Jim Dugan, who has over 30 years of extensive experience, will teach the class.

This training and certification is incredibly valuable for a variety of careers and circumstances. Whether you’re a healthcare worker, flight attendant, security guard, lifeguard, personal trainer, police officer, childcare provider or babysitter, a coach, a teacher, or a parent; just about everyone can benefit from learning how to perform CPR, use an AED (automated external defibrillator), and understand basic first aid. 


Mobile Hazwagon Comes to Carolina Beach

Sometimes it’s not always easy to do the right thing when it comes to doing what’s best for the environment — like properly disposing of household chemicals and other toxic products. It can be tempting to pour solvents and hazardous liquids down the drain or on the ground, or toss them in the trash, but these waste products can be harmful to our health and to the environment if they are absorbed into the ground or into our water supply. Fortunately, New Hanover County Environmental Management and UNCW’s Sustainability Committee have partnered to bring residents a more convenient way to dispose of household hazardous waste, making it easier to do what’s right.
