The Bald Head Island Public Safety Auxiliary
Annual Report to the Community
June 22, 2020
The Public Safety Auxiliary (PSA) was founded in the year 2000 and acts as a helping hand to the BHI Public Safety Department. We welcome all property owners to join our group. Our purpose is to assist the department in times of emergency, such as major fires, hurricanes or other emergencies. One of our duties is to provide food and drink to Public Safety staff and volunteers at the emergency site and to shuttle needed supplies back and forth from the Operations Building.
The PSA also acts as a conduit for donations received throughout the year from persons aided by and thankful for the exemplary service offered by our Public Safety Department. We are a 501(C)(3) organization. We also raise funds to supplement the tax-based budgeted items for the Public Safety Department.
The Director of Public Safety gives us a wish list of things not covered in the Village budget, and we typically try to fill those needs not covered by the village tax base. Remember, all monies raised and donated go for the enhancement of our Public Safety Department.
If you are interested in joining, contact me or any of our officers. We are fortunate to have Debbie Ward as Vice President, Susan Mullen as Secretary and Nonie Williams as Treasurer. These women have served more than a year in these positions, and we appreciate their dedication and service to the Public Safety Auxiliary.
