New record set:
Orcas Island Fire and Rescue has set a new call volume record for a three-day stretch of 31 requests for service. The previous record, over a four-day stretch was for 32 requests for service.  However, the distinction for the four-day stretch was that only one medic, Patrick Shepler with volunteer crews handled all the calls. Five FireMedics and their volunteer counterparts staffed our new three-day record over the Fourth of July weekend.
