Our Story

South Whidbey Fire/EMS was established as Island County Fire Protection District #3 by local community volunteers in 1950. Still relying heavily on our team of volunteers, we proudly serve the citizens of South Whidbey Island. We changed our name to better reflect the service we provide.

We are an active department. We conduct extensive training and educational outreach, while also answering an average of five emergency calls per calendar day. In 2021, we responded to 2,860 emergency requests: Fire, Medical, Marine, & High Angle Rescue calls.We have six stations located in: Freeland, Bayview, Langley, Saratoga, Clinton and Maxwelton.

Our district covers 57 miles of shoreline and 66 square miles of South Whidbey Island.South Whidbey Fire/EMS is rated by Washington State Rating Bureau as a Class 7 for fire protection, which means better insurance rates for most of our community homeowners.
