Edenton Fire Chief Craig Forlines is retiring.
“This job – it's in my blood – but I figured it is time to let some new folks step up,” he said. “We've got plenty of good and qualified folks. Time to let some of the young folks step in.”
Forlines has 30 years of service on the front lines of emergency management not only as a firefighter, but as a paramedic. He has achieved top emergency management posts in Pitt, Duplin and Cumberland counties. He served as assistant fire chief in Morehead City and as Oak Island's fire chief.
