This month’s Birch Bay Chamber of Commerce meeting (September 18th, beginning at 11:30 AM) is an opportunity for our community to hear and learn about our great Fire and EMS services.
North Whatcom Fire and Rescue is a combination fire department, relying on both career and volunteer firefighters to provide fire suppression and emergency medical services. Our career firefighters are all medically trained to the level of EMT-Basic.
The Fire District operates from 13 fire stations with four full paid engine companies with two of those companies being cross-staffed to ladder trucks, ad one part-paid engine company. Fire District operations include fire response, emergency medical services including BLS transport, rescue, and hazardous materials response at the operations level.
North Whatcom Fire and Rescue is managed by Fire Chief, Ron Anderson. Chief Anderson reports to the Board of Fire Commissioners who provide legislative authority for the fire district.
