Responding to the Alarm – Neighbors Helping Neighbors

The department is paged to emergencies by Oneida County 911 Center and responds in a moments notice to help those in need. We respond according to established Standard Operating Procedures with the equipment for the type of emergency. Depending on the type of call, automatic aid from our neighboring departments may also be paged, and we may be called to assist our neighbors as well. Being a volunteer fire department we bring a lot of experience to the scene of an emergency, not only the experience of the professionally trained volunteers, but also the experience’s from their career jobs as well. When someone needs help, fires, rescues, medical emergencies, natural disasters, or any thing, we get the call.

The Mutual Aid boundaries that the Nokomis Volunteer Fire Department uses to assist are as follows:

North on Highway 51 to County Y

South to County S and County H

East to Highway D and County B

West to Highway 8 and YY

Highway 86 is also covered
