OUR CITY

We have about 6,000 full time residents, but the city is also heavily populated by tourists year-round. The peak season between spring and summer can bring in 15,000-30,000 visitors a day. The median age of our residents is 62.

OUR DEPARTMENT

OSFD is a combination fire department with 22 career personnel, including a chief and assistant chief, administrative assistant, fire inspector and 19 firefighters. The department also has volunteer members.

As with most fire departments, about 85% of the 911 responses are for EMS. The nearest ER is at Harbor Regional Health in Aberdeen, about 25 miles away.
