To become a firefighter you must first fill out an application, once approved you will then have to attend a Basic Firefighter I course through an approved fire academy. The Firefighter I course is paid for by the Fire Company and is usually held twice a year. These courses run for approximately 6 months on Tuesday & Thursday evenings and about five (5) Saturdays (Burlington County). At the completion of Firefighter I, the candidate sits for a state test to obtain the certificate from the State of New Jersey.
To become an EMT (Emergency Medical Technician) you must first fill out an application, once approved you will then have to attend a Basic EMT course approved by the state. There are a couple of ways to obtain your EMT depending on your schedule and available courses. This course is at no charge to the member.
All continuing education and additional courses related for the services that we provide are paid for by the fire company.
Although the initial training is involved to get started, many volunteers have used this basic training and additional courses to become career firefighters and EMT's.
Besides answering calls, members perform duty crews, check out the vehicles to become proficient in the operation of different types of firefighting and emergency medical equipment, in house training, fund raisers, building maintenance, safety stand bys at different types of events through out the town and surrounding communities.
