In the event of a local emergency, firefighters and EMT’s (Emergency Medical Technicians) from the Old Orchard Beach Fire Department will often be the first to respond. If you experience an emergency, call 911 immediately.
Serious emergencies include: fires, smoke in a building, life threatening situations, injuries requiring medical attention, break-ins, fire or carbon monoxide alarms continuously sounding, reporting a crime as it’s happening, if someone is hurting someone else, biking accidents, car accidents, downed power lines, gas leaks, rip tides or drowning events.
Once you have called 911, you can expect to see responders from the Fire Department arrive in fire trucks, ambulances and other emergency vehicles. Stay calm and wait for the first responders to arrive. Once they have arrived, explain the emergency to them and let them take it from there. Their job is to keep you and others involved in the emergency situation safe. They are also there to assist with injuries and illnesses, and will help to take care of medical issues, if needed.
