In this ever-changing world we live in firefighters must be prepared to respond to emergencies that were unheard of in years past. The Nichols Hills Fire Department (NHFD) is prepared to respond to a wide range of calls from a simple public assist to a weapon of mass destruction incident. NHFD is a well-trained, fully equipped, fully paid professional department. We have one station that houses two fire engines, one brush pumper, and two command vehicles.
Approximately 4000 people live in the City of Nichols Hills and most of them will need our assistance in some way at some point in time. NHFD responds to 500-600 calls each year. These calls are very diverse in nature. They range from service calls (lifting assistance, house unlocks, ect.) to structure fires to special rescue to emergency medical calls. Our average response time to emergency calls is less than three minutes.
Rest assured that no matter what type of assistance you might require we will be there quickly to help and protect.
