Meet The Team

Tim Karp


First Response Pond Management was created as the result of two passionate careers coming together. Tim Karp, owner and lead operator, splits his time working as a Captain with New Hanover County Fire and operating First Response. With twelve years of employment firefighting, Tim understands the importance of time management, open and honest communication, and building trusting relationships within coworkers and customers. He values you as the customer to provide thorough and detailed work when contracted on your pond, no matter how big or small the job. At First Response Pond Management, we prioritize supporting local businesses and relationships, while also ensuring equipment and products being used are the best quality for your specific pond needs.
