Fire assessments coming soon to Oneonta

The City of Oneonta Fire Department will be conducting a risk assessment of residences and businesses over the next few months. During this process department members in uniforms and carrying Oneonta Fire Department ID’S will be looking at the exterior of all buildings and properties in the city and town of Oneonta. The fire department will not ask to enter any residence. They will ask to enter businesses to record any special hazards that are inherent to the business. The assessment is necessary for the Fire Department to more efficiently and safely meet the EMS, Fire and rescue needs of the community.
