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 

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.

On November 7, 2016 Kirkville Fire Company placed a 2016 Dodge/Reading Light Rescue vehicle in service as (new) Squad 2. Chaplain Bruce Foster presided over a dedication and wetdown ceremony. This vehicle replaces a 1994 Chevrolet unit that had served both our department and Minoa Fire Department well over the years but had outlived its useful service life.
Squad 2 is equipped with medical equipment including an AED, as well as wildland firefighting equipment and responds on all EMS alarms and outdoor fires.










At 7:13PM on Friday May 20, 2016, Kirkville Fire along with Minoa were initially dispatched for a large brush fire behind 6333 Kirkville Road North. Heavy smoke and fire were reported by arriving command units and It became immediately apparent that due to the lack of access roads and muddy field conditions that direct access to the fire with conventional engine companies would be impossible. Smaller brush firefighting vehicles, gators, ATVs, and dozers were requested and they arrived in force from departments everywhere including Onondaga, Madison, Oswego, Cortland, Oneida Counties and elsewhere. The Onondaga Air 1 helicopter arrived to perform water drops and aerial reconnaissance for our command staff. We thank everyone who helped out including firefighters from around the area, neighbors who offered refreshments, businesses that offered their heavy equipment, police units for handling scene access, EMS agencies for assisting with rehab and medical support, Onondaga Emergency Management and a special thanks to the Onondaga County 911 center for getting massive mutual aid to the scene and coordinating move up coverage. Great job by all. No major injuries or structure damage.
