A brief overview of the Department

Currently, the Department runs approximately 400 calls each year. Emergency Medical Services, Rescue, Fire, and Hazardous Materials Response are just some of the many emergency services that are provided to our community and surrounding areas at no charge. Our Department is located in Oneida County, NY between the cities of Rome and Utica. Our current membership roster has approximately 50 active firefighters who work hard to continue the Department's legacy of "neighbors helping neighbors" since 1900. Our fire protection district includes the entire Village of Oriskany and the northwestern portion of the Town of Whitestown, and is diverse with agriculture, commercial, industrial and residential areas. The fire protection district covers about 6 square miles, which includes several major transportation corridors, numerous governmental building complexes, and a business park comprised of light industrial manufacturing and office buildings. Over half of our fire district has hydrants that are maintained by the Oneida County Airport and the Upper Mohawk Valley Water Authority.

Our members strive to be well trained, as are the many other firefighters and emergency medical technicians in Oneida County and New York State. We share fire district borders with the following fire departments: City of Rome, Stanwix Heights, Stittville, Westmoreland and Whitesboro. Other nearby departments include: Clark Mills, Floyd, Maynard, New York Mills, and Yorkville. Because of the close proximity of our neighboring fire companies, we always enjoy the opportunity to work and train with them, to share experiences and techniques, and to increase every everyone's level of knowledge and awareness of the ever changing emergency services.
