On March 26, 2014 at 21:22, Kirkville Rescue and Minoa Ambulance were alerted for a vehicle rollover with entrapment at 6420 Kirkville Road North. Kirkville Car 2 (Bell) was first on scene along with Kirkville EMT's S. Foster and B. Foster who began immediate patient assessment and treatment. Rescue Pumper 4 and Squad 2 arrived next and utilized wedges, stabilization jacks and straps to stabilize the vehicle which was on its side with its roof pinned against a parked vehicle. An additional ambulance was called from Fayetteville at 21:35. Hydraulic cutters were used to remove the exposed doors and "B" pillar allowing crews to extricate the patient.

If your house number is not clearly legible, we may have trouble finding you in the event of an emergency call, especially at night or in inclement weather. The Kirkville Fire Company is now selling house number signs that are legible, reflective, visible from either direction, and mountable on the appropriate side of the street (particularly important if your mailbox is across the street). We encourage all Kirkville Fire District residents to purchase one of these signs for $20 including mounting post. We'll even install it for you! If you're interested in purchasing one of these signs for your home or business, and you are located within our Fire District (click here to check), then please send us an email to AddressSigns@kirkvillefire.com
Non-District residents: If you don't live in our Fire District, you can still purchase the exact model signs we're using directly from our supplier by clicking here . We recommend 4" numerals on a green sign panel. Please note that posts are not provided for orders placed through the sign company.
