Welcome to Onondaga County Volunteer Firemen's Association

 The Onondaga County Volunteer Firemen's Association was organized in July 1899 and is recognized as one of the oldest county firemen's associations in the United States.  A group of men from eight Central New York villages met to discuss and propose an association of firemen to further the cooperation between existing volunteer fire departments.  Skaneateles hosted the first OCVFA convention in 1899 where the by-laws were formulated.  At that time there were 23 departments in the county.  Presently there are 57.  We have functioned with a comprehensive mutual aid system since 1936.

     Today's firefighter is trained in many complex emergency and medical services, treating accident victims, natural and man-made disasters, hazardous material incidents, rescuing people from burning buildings and working with multiple agencies and their personnel at the scene.

     Members from all the Onondaga County volunteer fire departments, as well as ambulance services and other public safety agencies are invited to attend our monthly meetings held on the 3rd Wednesday of most months.  Please check the meeting schedule for meeting dates and locations.
