As Hurricane Dorian heads toward North Carolina, a local group of firefighters is heading out to help residents closer to the coast.

Firefighters from Statesville have been deployed to Columbus County, North Carolina.

The group will provide fire protection and rescue work when called upon as the region anticipates higher call volumes related to the approaching storm, according to Statesville Fire Chief Spencer Lee.

The group will be deployed until Sept. 13.
