Douglas Okanogan Fire District 15 EMS officially broke ground for their new station addition last Tuesday, September 27, 2017. The Fire District 15 EMS station is located at 412 W. Indian Ave., Brewster.

The Okanogan County Commissioners, along with several other members of the community, EMS staff and volunteers, as well as, Fire District 15 Commissioner Chair, were on hand for the ceremonial first shovel scoop.

The new addition, which is being funded by an Department of Commerce Community Development Block Grant, will enable DOCFD15 EMS to enhance their response capabilities, as well as, provide the community a location for shelter in the event of an emergency. The work will include renovating the existing building as well, which will add sleeping quarters for our on call personnel covering EMS shifts at night. This will improve response times.

Construction of the new EMS addition will begin the first week in October.
