(Town of FH Press Release) -Fire Chief Vern Long resigned his position effective October 18, 2010. It was a mutual decision and one both parties believe is a positive step and one that will allow the Fire Department to continue its focus on the goal of providing services and protecting the citizens and property of our community.

Chief Long’s resignation comes on the heels of considerable media attention regarding safety protocols and training. In light of this, it was mutually agreed that Chief Long would resign in order that the Town may turn its focus to reassuring appropriate safety and training protocols continue to be used.

The paramount concern of the Town of Friday Harbor and the Town of Friday Harbor Fire Department continues to be the public health, safety and welfare of all of its citizens. To this end, the Town and the Fire Department remain committed to providing services the public can rely upon and trust.
