About OBIFD

The Orr's & Bailey Islands Fire Department serves all of Orr's and Bailey Islands and portions of Great Island east of the Mountain Road bridge and south of Stevens Corner Road on Route 24, including Long Point, and Mountain Road east of the Ewing Narrows bridge.

We are an all-volunteer department, with members serving as firefighters, fire ground support personnel, emergency medical technicians, drivers and community volunteers.

Our Main fire station is located on Harpswell Island Road on Orr's Island. It houses one fire attack pumper truck, a 2,000-gallon water tank truck, a heavy rescue/utility truck and a rescue ambulance.

Another station on Harpswell Island Road on Bailey Island is home to a second fire attack pumper and a brush truck.
