EMS Headquarters Building to be named for H. Mark Gore at Apr. 7 Ceremony


The Brunswick County EMS Headquarters Building will be named the H. Mark Gore EMS Headquarters Building, after longtime Brunswick County EMS employee Mark Gore, at a dedication ceremony at 11 a.m. on Friday, April 7.

The ceremony is open to all who wish to attend.

Mark Gore was one of Brunswick County EMS’s first paid paramedics, and had been with the department for more than 25 years, most recently as EMS Operations Manager. He had obtained numerous paramedic, emergency management and related designations and certifications, and was a paramedic with the Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office SWAT team for several years.

He was also a longtime member and chief of the Shallotte Volunteer Rescue Squad. Gore was a deputy coroner, a U.S. Army veteran and an ordained deacon, active with First Baptist Church of Shallotte.

After his unexpected death in Oct. 2016, the Brunswick County Board of Commissioners voted unanimously to rename the Brunswick County EMS Headquarters Building the H. Mark Gore EMS Headquarters Building in his memory.

The dedication ceremony will be held Friday, Apr. 7 at 11 a.m., near Mark’s birthday and the day he started working with Brunswick County. The building is located at 40 Naber Drive in Shallotte.
