Along with providing fire protection and emergency medical services within the municipal boundary of the town, the fire department  has mutual aid agreements with neighboring communities, including the Omro-Rushford Fire Department and  provides staffing for the City of Oshkosh during large fires within the city. These agreements are part of MABAS (Mutual Aid Box Alarm System). The agreements help ensure no one department is being depleted of all their resources, apparatus during one event and can also respond to other calls as necessary.
