Norman Fire Department

Levi Scott Wilkins - February 5, 1987 - September 22, 2023

On Friday, Sept. 22, our NFD family & community lost firefighter Levi Wilkins in a rock climbing accident in the Wichita Mountains. While only 36, Levi lived BIG and set an example for how to live a fulfilling life.

Levi Scott WilkinsHe was the most incredible husband, father, son, brother, firefighter and friend. He approached life with a full heart and desire to push himself to the limit in all kinds of ways.

Born on Feb. 5, 1987 to Steve and Sharie Wilkins, Levi was raised alongside his brother Jake on "The Hill" where four generations of his maternal family all lived. He graduated in 2005 from Edmond Memorial High School where he played trumpet in the marching band and met his high school sweetheart Emily at the age of 16.

After earning a bachelor's degree in German from TCU, Levi and Emily married in 2009. He worked for the Norman Fire Department and was active in several alpine, urban search and rescue, as well as church organizations while also raising their three children, Nora, Wyatt and Owen. Levi was the driving force in planning global family adventures, as well as his own ice climbing and alpine excursions on some of the world's most famous peaks. Levi was no stranger to challenging journeys. Upon being diagnosed with rare adrenal cancer in 2019, he endured nine months of intense chemo, surgery and severe bone pain which left his once-capable body broken. Once in remission, he celebrated by often waking up at 4 a.m. to run or climb stadium stairs to rebuild muscle before working a 24-hour shift at the fire station. He was determined to build back his body to be able to work as a fireman without restriction, run marathons and once again reach the highest summits - all things he accomplished through years of grueling work and discipline.

Levi often vocalized how every day was a gift. His own words captured it best:

"Being in a wild space is incredibly healing to me, and climbing is cathartic. It's my art. Perfecting the ability to move through vertical terrain is no different than a singer developing her voice, or a painter learning about lines and shading. It's an act of creation, and one I find necessary to live from a place of love rather than fear."

Levi refused to be defined as a cancer patient. Continuing to push himself through marathons and outdoor experiences was a critical part of transitioning from the mindset of a patient back to that of a survivor. It brings his family peace knowing he spent his last day doing something he loved - climbing. Levi leaves behind an inspirational legacy that lives on in the many lives he positively impacted.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations in Levi's name to First Descents so they may provide more cancer patients with life-changing experiences through outdoor adventures. Family and friends are also encouraged to share photos and stories of Levi at leviwilkins.memorial for his children and loved ones to cherish in the years ahead.  

Norman Fire Department Achieves Highest Possible ISO Public Protection Classification

"I'm incredibly proud of our Fire Department for joining this elite group of fire departments in the U.S.," said City Manager Darrel Pyle. "Our firefighters and city staff work tirelessly to keep our residents, businesses, and visitors safe."

The City of Norman Fire Department joins the ranks of only 388 fire departments across the nation with a Class 1 Public Protection Classification.  The City of Norman is proud to announce that its Fire Department has received a Class 1 Public Protection Classification (PPC) rating from the Insurance Services Office (ISO). ISO ratings assess local fire departments' readiness by classifying a community's ability to suppress a fire.

An ISO fire score rating is determined based on how well a local fire department can protect their community. Some Insurance companies use the score to help set property insurance rates, as a home or business that is less likely to be severely damaged or destroyed by fire costs less to insure. The Class 1 rating, which is the highest possible rating, validates that the City of Norman Fire Department provides residents, visitors, and businesses with industry-leading fire protection services.  

"I'm incredibly proud of our Fire Department for joining this elite group of fire departments in the U.S.," said City Manager Darrel Pyle. "Our firefighters and city staff work tirelessly to keep our residents, businesses, and visitors safe."  

This accomplishment was a team effort that included the City of Norman Fire Department, Dispatch Center, Public Works Department, and Utilities Department, and with community support through Public Safety Sales Tax funding for fire equipment and apparatus.  

"The Norman Fire Department staff has worked tirelessly over the last four years on this project, which was made possible by the Public Safety Sales Tax. Our apparatus replacement program over the last three years made a big impact in this audit. It is truly incredible that we were able to significantly better our rating without adding any new fire stations since the last audit, and I believe this is one of the biggest accomplishments in NFD history," said Fire Chief Travis King. "We are hopeful this will have a substantial positive impact on insurance rates for the residents and business owners of Norman. I want to thank the Council and the Community for supporting the PSST. City Manager Pyle supported our efforts and was a big help getting us across the finish line.  PSST is not just a tax. It's an investment that will be paying dividends to the community."  

ISO is an independent organization that evaluates fire-protection efforts in communities across the country. The organization collects information on communities and analyzes the data using its Fire Suppression Rating Schedule. This Fire Suppression Rating Schedule evaluates four primary categories of fire suppression – fire department, emergency communications, water supply, and community risk reduction. Fire services are ranked between 1 and 10.  

The Class 1 ISO rating will rank the City of Norman Fire Department as one of only 388 Fire Departments in the U.S. that are both accredited and have an ISO Class 1 rating.
