Citizen’s Advisory Group

The San Juan Island Fire Department and San Juan EMS would like your input on the advisability of the consolidation of the two organizations. The elected Boards of Commissioners of the two agencies, working with the town of Friday Harbor, seek to appoint a five member advisory group to continue with the evaluation of some type of consolidation of the two agencies. This work should include, but not be limited to the legal and financial considerations.

Interested community members should forward a letter of interest to be delivered by 5 p.m. on April 23, 2018. At their regularly scheduled meetings in May the Fire Department, EMS, and the Town of Friday Harbor will each select one individual from the pool of interested citizens. Those three appointed individuals will then select two more members to the Advisory Group.

The Citizens’ Advisory Group’s work will be supported by the Fire Department and EMS administrations and have funds available to engage consultants and subject matter experts. A schedule for the development and delivery of a final report will be developed with the Advisory Group once they have been seated.
