The annual New York State Fire Chaplain’s Conference was held April 20 to 22, 2015 at the State Fire Academy at Montour Falls.
Chaplain Bruce Foster attended the conference along with 47 chaplains from across New York State. Each day began with a time of worship followed by a full day of training. This year’s topic was “Back to the Basics”. A banquet was held on Tuesday evening followed by a memorial service for deceased chaplains held at the United Methodist Church in Montour Falls. Thanks Chaplain Foster for attending on our behalf and for all you do for us here at Kirkville Fire Company!
The Kirkville Fire Company periodically sets up a driver competency course to allow our apparatus driver/operators to practice their vehicle maneuvering skills. Personnel operate our Engines and Squad vehicles through several obstacles in forward and reverse to increase their confidence in vehicle handling, turning within narrow limits, backing, mirror usage and more.

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.
