The Odebolt Fire Department was first organized in the spring of 1880 and consisted of 40 volunteers and a hook and ladder outfit. Today the department continues to serve Odebolt and surrounding area with volunteers from the community. The Department celebrated its 125th year in June 2005.
Equipment includes full gear and air packs, hazardous material gear, and environmental hazard gear. The department uses water and chemicals for extinguishing blazes.
Vehicles include 1997, 1995, 1976, 1972 and 1968 Fire Trucks; Water Tanker; Rescue Unit; Slide-on Pumper, and a 1926 Antique Chevrolet Fire Truck.
The Odebolt Unit 81-44, Sac County Ambulance was started July 6, 1978. The first ambulance was donated to the service by Marvin and Margaret Stock in 1981. In the fall of 1995, this ambulance was given to the Odebolt Fire Department and the county purchased a 1994 Ford modular ambulance for Odebolt. The county-owned vehicle is housed in a city-owned building which was remodeled in the spring of 2001, adding much needed space.
The Odebolt Unit is a "Provisional-I" service and the Life-Pak 300 defibrillator is used. Squad members are on call for twelve hour shifts; each shift has three persons on call at one time.
