Orcas Fire and Rescue is holding a second town hall meeting on Thursday, March 7, 6:30 p.m. at the Eastsound Fire Hall to address questions about possible involvement in a marine operations group. The following topics will be touched upon.
• How should OIFR be involved in the operations, maintenance and expenses for the Marine Operations User’s Group?
• To what extent should the Fire District provide or pay for services outside of the district’s boundaries?
• How should the district operate and fund: medical transport to the mainland; marine search and rescue operations; assistance to other islands whose residents do not provide financial support to any fire district; should the district seek reimbursement for any of the services mentioned above?
