Fire Safety & Prevention
We have full firefighting capabilities using the latest techniques and equipment including Compressed Air Foam System (CAFS). CAFS enhances fire knock down by up to 700% more effectively than water alone, while greatly reducing water damage to property.
Rescue & EMS
We provide full Emergency Medical Services including a tiered Paramedic Level Response utilizing the Lisbon Fire Department Paramedics. Through a generous donation from Oconomowoc Memorial and Waukesha Memorial Hospital Foundations, we can now perform 12 lead EKG’s and transmit the information to the Hospital where the patient is being transported. This greatly reduces the time for the cardiac patient to receive definitive treatment.
VMFD does fire inspections annually for the businesses in our response area in the town and village.
