A community risk assessment will be conducted by the City of Oneonta Fire Department over the next few months. During this process department members in uniforms and carrying Oneonta Fire Department ID'S will be looking at the exterior of all buildings and properties in the city and town of Oneonta. The fire department will not ask to enter any residence but will ask to enter businesses to record any special hazards that are inherent to the business.  The purpose of this assessment is for the Fire Department to more efficiently and safely meet the EMS, Fire and rescue needs of the community.
