Each year, the Fire Department hosts an open house during fire prevention week in the month of October. The food is always great and there’re many activities for adults and children to participate in, including taking a ride in a fire truck.
The Fire Department regularly visits the schools to teach the children about fire prevention and what to do in the event of a fire.
In the past, the Waverly Fire Department has executed a mock car accident at the high school for the schools SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions) club. This event not only showed students what the Fire Department, Sheriffs Office, and Life Flight do in the event of a vehicular accident, but also taught students the severity of driving while intoxicated.

The Waverly Fire and Rescue department received a donation from Just Wright Sharpening of Lincoln donating a Wag’n O2 Fur Life pet oxygen kit to the department in January 2018
“Wag’N O2 Fur Life is an educational and public safety company dedicated to providing pet oxygen masks to first responders across North America to help them save animal lives following structural fires,” said Jim Wright.
The company is donating one kit a month to volunteer departments throughout 2018. Waverly was the first on the list.
