Oneida County Fire Chief's Association

 association logo 
Established  1941
The Oneida County Fire Chief's Association was formed in 1941 after the attack at Pearl Harbor at the request of then Governor Lehman. The Governor requested that chiefs associations be formed throughout the state and that a mutual aid system be formed. The Governor feared that New York State would be a prime target during the war and a mutual aid agreement would enable Fire Departments from nearby communities to move into vital areas and assist in case of emergencies. Currently the association has nearly 800 members. The Association is made up of the 51 Fire Departments of Oneida County, 9 Fire Departments from neighboring counties, past and present fire officers. The Association meetings are held monthly at different Fire Departments within the county. The Association brings to its members the latest in fire fighting training, and equipment with training seminars and an equipment show in October.
