About Us

Woodland Volunteer Fire & EMS is a dedicated team of volunteers whose mission is to protect life and property from fire and disaster — located in Woodland Township, New Jersey. The Department covers 96.4 Square Miles with a population of 1,800 residents and currently operates out of two (2) stations. The members operate with one command vehicle, two engines, 1-4,000 gallon water tender,  and two ambulances providing the residents with both fire protection and emergency medical services at the BLS level.

 Station 1 is located on Rt. 563 in Chatsworth and houses 1 Engine, 1 Water Tender, and 1 Ambulance and Station 2 is located on Locust Avenue in Lebanon Lakes and houses 1 Engine and 1 Ambulance. The department also provides mutual aid assistance to the surrounding communities, along with participating in community events.

Chatsworth Volunteer Fire Department Station 291, was formed in 1939 in an old one bay building near Route 563 and Barnegat Road. (Originally known as Station 18-F-42.) They were given the task of protecting the 96.4 Square mile township, and its residents from wildfires, dwelling fires, motor vehicle accidents, and any other incident where people were in danger. Then they moved to its current location on the corner of Routes 563 and 532 in 1963. With Chatsworth Fire Company now in the center of town, it still had difficulty responding to emergencies on the far edge of the township, Lebanon Lakes Volunteer Fire Company & Mercy First Aid Squad were formed to answer this problem, by splitting the township and better serving the growing population.

Lebanon Lakes Volunteer Fire Company Station 292, was formed in 1969. (Originally known as station 18-F-43) by members of Chatsworth Volunteer Fire Department who resided in Lebanon Lakes Estates development and along Route 72. The members of the department built the building and purchased apparatus to assist in providing coverage for the town of Woodland.

Mercy First Aid Squad, Station 299, was started in 1972 much in the same way as Lebanon Lakes, in that the members built the building and purchased the first ambulances to provide emergency medical services to the residents and visitors of Woodland Township. Mercy First Aid Squad later built another building in Chatsworth to provide a more rapid response to the residents.

In September 2007, with a lack of membership and response becoming an issue, it was decided by the Woodland Township committee that the MFAS would be disbanded, and the property and equipment would be issued to the Lebanon Lakes Volunteer Fire Company. It was then that Lebanon Lakes EMS was founded. Lebanon Lakes EMS operated out of the Fire Department, which, in the beginning, was not an easy task.

It was during this time that the members decided that Woodland Township could be served more efficiently if all town emergency services were all on the same page. It was decided that a full merge of all three entities was needed. Through countless hours of meetings, investigations, and proposals, an agreement was reached, and Woodland Volunteer Fire & EMS was founded on January 1st, 2009.
