The Irvington Volunteer Fire Department was founded in 1952. Before this time, there was a group of men who were part of a men’s club. This group of men decided to start a volunteer fire department to help the community. This involved many hours of collecting donations and finding people to join. Once they had enough money and volunteers, they started the fire department.
Today we provide fire fighting, extrication, and BLS/ALS services to our community. We are a 100% volunteer non-profit organization serving a population of about 20,000 people. We currently respond to over 600 calls a year. (80% EMS runs, 20% FIRE runs). We strive to keep our membership around 30 people, but are always open to accepting new applications. Irvington VFD currently has an ISO rating of 4/8.
Our apparatus consists of the following: 1 off-road first response fire truck, 1 pumper, 1 tanker, 1 aerial, and 2 ALS ambulances. We also have a command/utility vehicle. We have one fire station and it is located on the northwest edge of Omaha, in Douglas County. It is located about 1 mile north of 90th and Blair High Road.
Our department is part of the Tri-Mutual Aid Association, Nebraska State Volunteer Fire Association and the Nebraska EMS Association. Irvington VFD also works closely with other local fire departments, Douglas County sheriffs, and Immanuel Hospital.
Irvington Volunteer Fire & Rescue has been around for more than 65 years serving the community and we thank you for all of the support.
