Congrats to JimandLinda on being FTF!!

In my job as a 911/dispatcher, I interact with many police and fire agencies. I have started a series by placing a cache near the fire stations to honor the many volunteer and paid departments I have the privilege to dispatch on a daily basis.

The Town of Oshkosh Fire Department responds to structural and wildland/grass fires to preserve life, property, and the environment. The department is equipped with one attack engine, one pumper, one tanker, and one light rescue truck. Firefighters are trained to NFPA standards and are certified by the State of Wisconsin to Level I, Level II, or Officer. Safety and fire code inspections are available.

The Town of Oshkosh Fire Department maintains a 24-7-365 on-call staff of ten First Responders to provide BLS (Basic Life Support) level emergency medical care. When situations warrant, ALS (Advanced Life Support) Paramedics are dispatched to assist First Responders with care and transport of patients with life-threatening injuries or illnesses. ALS is a mutual aid service provided by Gold Cross Ambulance and the City Of Oshkosh Fire Department.

First Responders are certified by the State of Wisconsin and undergo constant training to maintain and update field skills. Certification also requires mandatory bi-annual refresher courses in BLS and CPR(Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation).

The Town of Oshkosh Fire Department provides a variety of rescue services including:

Extrication - freeing trapped persons from vehicles or other machinery.

Confined Space - removing trapped or overcome persons from tanks, silos, and other enclosures

Lost Persons - locating missing persons, vehicles, or aircraft in joint effort with law enforcement agencies.

RIT - rapid intervention team for firefighter rescue
