Holly, MI – The North Oakland County Fire Authority Winter Fest took place Saturday, with firefighters taking the time to teach kids about fire safety. There were also games and a chance to check out the big red trucks and fire equipment.

According to their website: “The North Oakland County Fire Authority (aka: NOCFA) was formed in 1984. Our department is located in Holly, Michigan. Our primary response area is 69 square miles consisting of Holly and Rose Township. Our area is rural and zoned primarily residential and agricultural. Our current population is 10,112. On average we respond to about 700 calls including mutual aid calls to other departments. We provide 24/7-Fire Suppression, sidebar016growRescue Services, Hazmat Operations/Technical services; and ALS Medical Transporting. Our department has a full-time Fire Chief and Training Officer, along with 49 active paid-on-call members, including medical only personnel and scene support members.

“Beyond the residential population, services are delivered to nonprofit day/overnight camps, several state parks and recreation areas, 3 schools and the Great Lakes National Cemetery. Significant exposures within our township include 15 miles of CSX Railroad and 10 miles of Canadian National Railroad that run the complete length of our area as well as a 60,000 gallon LPG storage facility, a central distribution natural gas routing hub and a large diameter high pressure natural gas transmission pipeline.
