I know for a fact that

I know for a fact that employees work at the animal shelter every day of the year. A small staff has to be there to take care of the animals and pick up injured animals between normal business hours.

As for working emergency hours and getting paid - you can check it out at the NHC web-site and look under policies (New Hanover County Personnel Policies & Procedures). Emergency pay is covered in 3.17.1, 3.17.4, and 3.17.6.

NHC Policy 3.17.1 Emergency Pay Non-Exempt Employees “Non-exempt employees required to report to work or remain at work in response to the emergency shall be compensated at the time-and-one-half rate for all hours worked and shall receive administrative leave pay for that period of time constituting all or part of their regularly scheduled work shift.”
