Summer Porch Programs. Don't miss the Beach Apparatus Drill, The U.S. Life-Saving Service required all stations to practice this rescue method weekly. Chicamacomico is now one of only two places in the country— and the ONLY one to be performed by active-duty US Coast Guard personnel—that performs the complete Drill, including live black powder firing and live shot. Popularly known as the “Breeches Buoy Rescue Reenactment,” it remains the best show on the Outer Banks!
