    Not All Heros Wear Capes

     Through this time of uncertainty and seemingly constant change, we have given endless adulation to hospital staff and first responders all over the country, and rightfully so. However, have we paused to think of the people holding our own county together?

    Despite adjusted best practices and high standards for performance, these departments have risen to the challenge. They have put the needs of their community first and tirelessly altered their understanding of how they practice and innovated new solutions to ensure that the citizens of Craven County continued to receive the services on which they depend.

    Our Health Department Nurses, 911 Communicators, Social Workers, and Deputies have been tireless in their pursuit to keep us safe, both from COVID-19 and other threats. So, let's take a moment to thank them for choosing every day to lace up their boots and walk out of their homes so that we can be safe in ours.
