Oak Harbor is growing mainly to the southwest
Station 82
a second fire station has been part of the City's long-range strategic plan since the 1990's

former leaders recognized potential for SW growth and believed it to be the logical location for a second station

will increase level of service to residents in the southwest and northwest quadrants

will provide better fire service to all oak harbor residents

better coverage = better insurance rating for the City = potential for lower insurance rates
We work well with neighboring ems agencies
we provide better service and reduce risk by maintaining mutual aid agreements
