Oak Run First Responders and Fire Fighters
The First Responders (FR) and Fire Fighters (FF) are full-time Oak Run resident volunteers with a fire truck and emergency equipment vehicle garaged at the corner of Oak Run Drive and Lake View South, serving Oak Run and the surrounding area. They are under the direction of the Williamsfield Fire Protection District consisting of two ambulances, five fire trucks, two brush rigs, three First Responder vehicles, and a Fire/Rescue boat located on the lake. The fire district volunteers are on call 24/7. The FRs and FFs are called to 9-1-1 emergencies and are first on the scene. Fire Fighters are trained through classes held by Western Illinois Fire Fighters Association and Illinois Fire Service Institute. They are called to fires and car accidents. First Responders are part of the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) trained by the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) with continuing education in medical and first aid emergencies, CPR, and AED (defibrillator). They are called to medical emergencies, fires, and car accidents, staying with the patient until the ambulance arrives and leaves with him/her for the hospital. Oak Run is also serviced by Knoxville and Victoria Fire Protection Districts and Galesburg Hospitals Ambulance Service (GHAS).

The First Responders sponsor a monthly free blood pressure check for the community, which is held on the fourth Saturday of the month from 9-10 a.m. at the First Responder garage. They also sponsor a food drive for the FISH Food Pantry in Galesburg.

Volunteers meet on the first Thursday of each month at 7:00 PM at the First Responder garage. They are always in need of new members; no previous medical or fire fighting training required.
