Community Services

Education about Fire Safety

We prevent fires and save lives by educating about fire safety. Oak Harbor Fire Department's fire prevention education program encompasses a wide variety of activities for citizens of all ages. We are availalbe to assist with your needs -- from community events to station tours. The best way to fight fires is to prevent them from happening. 

CPR/First Aid Training -- while we do not maintain regularly scheduled CPR/First Aid cources, we do have qualified instructors and are happy to schedule a class for your organization or group. If you are an individual seeking CPR Training, you have options -- contact us to join the next class, check with the Island County Fire Districts to see when their classes are offered, contact Heartbeat Safety Center (a local business offering CPR training). 

Blood Pressure Checks

Stop by the Fire Department anytime for a free blood pressure check! Learn more about why you may want to monitor your blood pressure at the American Heart Association.

Fire & Life Safety Inspections

Businesses and public places are inspected annually by Oak Harbor Fire Department personnel. The inspections are free and pro-active toward fire safety. During an inspection the crew will look at fire alarm and fire sprinkler systems, fire extinguisher placement, exit signs and egress accessibility, and we make sure we know who to contact if there is an emergency in the building. The inspections provide an opportunity for our crews to familiarize themselves with each building in town and see what they may encounter during a fire at the site.

We also help new businesses meet fire codes requirements in conjunction with the National Fire Protection Association Standards (NFPA).  

Smoke Alarms

Smoke Detectors and CO2 Detectors SAVE LIVES! If you need assistance with your smoke alarm (determining placement / replacing battery) contact us at (360) 279-4700.

Drug Disposal

Disposing of over-the-counter and prescription medication properly will help ensure that it doesn't harm a person, animal, or the environment. Oak Harbor Police Department coordinates drug take-back events and maintains a collection box available 24/7 in their night lobby. Prepare your medication for disposal by removing all pills from original packaging and placing them into a zip-seal bag. The City's collection box cannot accept liquid medication. Learn more about how to dispose of unused medications from the Federal Drug Administration:
