FULL Burn Ban in Effect
Governor Inslee issued a State of Emergency for all of Washington state as of July 6, 2021, which includes a Burn Ban in effect for the entire state until September 30, 2021. The Skagit County Fire Marshal has also issued a Full Burn Ban as of July 16, 2021.
The Guemes Island Fire Department has made the decision that Marine Rescue is no longer a viable service that can be provided by this department. After seven years with our Marine Rescue vessel, the data shows that we are unable to respond in a manner that allows for both the safety of our volunteers, and offers a timely response to marine events.
COVID-19 cases continue to be present in Skagit County and throughout the state. Please take every measure to help stop the spread and follow the guidance and precautions available at the Washington State Department of Health's COVID-19 briefing page.
Starting April 16, all Washington residents, age 16 and older will be eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. For additional information, please see the county health site here or the DOH vaccine information page here.
