Captain Erik Wildanger retires from Oak Bluffs Fire-EMS
The Oak Bluffs Fire-EMS Department would like to recognize Captain Erik Wildanger who retired from the department on June 1, 2018. Captain Wildanger came to us from the Tisbury Fire Department 23 years ago. Erik joined OBFD on June 1, 1995 as a Firefighter on the Rescue Truck. Erik excelled through the ranks and became a Lieutenant of the Rescue Truck in 2007. in 2013, Erik was appointed Captain of 561 and remained a respected leader for five years.
23 years of service equals countless calls in the middle of the night, many department drills and training to help protect the citizens of our town.
As well as showing his commitment to our Fire Department, Erik also remained a dedicated member of our Firemen's Civic Association. Captain Wildanger was quite successful at raising funds for our departments annual fireworks display, our Scholarship Fund and our Firefighters Assistance Program. From all of us at Oak Bluffs Fire-EMS, thank you Captain Wildanger for all the sacrifices you've made over the many years of your service!
