Serving Tomahawk and the surrounding community since 1894.  The Tomahawk Fire Department serves a 350 square mile area consisting of the northern portion of Lincoln County and part of the southern portion of Oneida County. In addition to the city of Tomahawk, Wisconsin, the department covers all of five surrounding townships and a portion of a sixth. 

  The department carries a roster of 28, with an additional 4 'auxiliary' junior firefighters, and provides an area population of approximately 10,000 with fire suppression services and a variety of rescue services including extrication, haz-mat response, dive rescue/recovery (open water and under ice) and confined space rescue/recovery. The department also offers award-winning fire prevention programs along with fire inspection programs and an arson investigation team. 

  US HWY 51/I-39 borders the city to the east and runs north/south. US HWY 8 runs east/west across our northern border. US HWY 86 runs east/west across our middle portion. All are major freight transport routes. In addition, the Canadian National Railway runs two freight trains daily through the city with 50% of the freight being either fuel or chemicals. 

  Within our response area are one hospital, two nursing homes, five residential housing facilities for low income/elderly, one semi-chemical paper mill, three fiberglass manufacturing and painting facilities, one wood/resin composite siding manufacturer and a bulk propane distribution facility with 450,000 gallons in storage at any given time. 

  Responding to approximately 100 calls per year, the Tomahawk Fire Department continues to maintain the highest ISO rating that can be achieved by a volunteer department. We take great pride in our department and invite you to browse our site. Leave a note in our guestbook or email us if you have time - we'd like to hear from you.
