Letter to the Editor: Shout-Out to the Baileys Harbor Fire Department on its New Fire Station

Congratulations to the Baileys Harbor community on its new fire station! As a member of the Baileys Harbor Condo Association, I’ve followed the Baileys Harbor Fire Department’s efforts from early on. I was impressed with how Chief Brian Zak, Assistant Chief Eric Peil and their team carefully weighed every step in the process, from selecting the right location and designing an efficient and effective floor plan, to focusing on the health and safety of the department’s personnel. 

As the director of national fire-station design conferences and awards programs for 21 years, I know the Baileys Harbor Fire Department has done an excellent job to provide for its personnel and to better serve its community and the surrounding area.
