Fire Chief’s Message

Summer has ended, school is back in full-swing and the Bainbridge Island Fire Department continues to celebrate the completion and opening of your Fire Station 22. Station 22 is now staffed 24/7 and responding to our community’s fire and emergency medical services. Thank you to all those who attended the grand opening on September 28th.

The entire staff has been gearing up for the highly anticipated 26th annual Pancake Breakfast & Fire Truck Rides event. The Pancake Breakfast is a long-standing tradition and a great opportunity for us to meet and connect with the community. Please join us on Saturday, October 12th from 8am to noon for one of Bainbridge Island’s fall favorites!

The October 2019 Fire Prevention Week’s campaign, “Not Every Hero Wears a Cape. Plan and Practice Your Escape!” works to educate everyone about the small but important actions they can take to keep themselves and those around them safe. Please check our website Home Safety Tips and create a home escape plan with all members of your household. Make sure everyone knows what to do in a fire and is prepared to escape quickly and safely.
