COVID-19 Update

In order to safely protect the public and our responders, Orcas Fire has closed the building to all but essential personnel. This means that the lobby is closed to all public access, including the meeting room. Burn Permits may only be purchased online via the link below. Our emergency operations and responders are still available to respond 24/7 by dialing 911.

While we don't take this action lightly, we hope you will understand that it is imperative that those whom you depend upon in an emergency are kept safe and free from illness so that they can be there for you when you need them. Thank you for your understanding and continued patience and support.
