Emergency Services at Fort Worden

We had a little too much excitement last week. The good news is that there was no lasting damage done...

We needed to call 911 from the school and we discovered some wonderful things. Fort Worden has an extended 911 system which means that any 911 call from any of the Fort's building goes straight to Jefferson County Dispatch and the local Emergency Services. The 911 call is also flagged to the Rangers and other trained staff at the Fort. Within minutes of the call there were helpful Fort staff at the scene and I'd been called at home to notify me of the event.

The Fort is also equipped with AED (defibrillators) and other first aid equipment.

This makes us additionally glad that we are located at Fort Worden.

Our sincere thanks to the EMTs of East Jefferson Fire and Rescue and the responding staff at Fort Worden.
