Tension Inside Oak Bluffs Fire Department Leads to Emergency
By JAMES KINSELLA
Following mounting dissension in the Oak Bluffs fire department, the
chairman of the board of selectmen moved this week to make the ambulance
service a separate department.
Selectman and board chairman Gregory Coogan said he made a
management decision Wednesday to split the two services, a move he said
was long overdue.
"I think there are inherent problems in the two
departments," Mr. Coogan said. "I think they have been at
odds over time."
