Founded in 1893, today the department has a total of twenty-seven volunteer firefighters and two career personnel. There is a firefighter on duty at the station fifteen hours a day, with the exception of weekends. The Oelwein Fire Department is involved with much more than firefighting. We do many special assignments consisting of lockouts, storm watches, carbon monoxide, confined space rescue, automobile extrication, farm and industrial rescues, unlocking dwellings, and unusual odors. The two main fund raisers hosted every year are the Fathers Day Omelet breakfast hosted on Fathers Day, and the spaghetti supper held on Wednesday of Fire Prevention week. The money made from the fund raisers is used to purchase fire and rescue equipment only.
Any person wishing to become a volunteer firefighter should contact:
