Flanders Fire Co. #1 and Rescue Squad
The Fire Department has the responsibility of keeping up with all Federal, State, and local laws, procedures, and policies that oversee the Fire Service. The Fire Department also has the duty to maintain all the Fire Engines and all other equipment used to protect the lives and property of the Flanders residents as well as those who live around our town. The Fire Department is also responsible for attaining the best possible equipment and the continuous training of our members – both for their safety and the safety of all whom we protect.
The Fire Department is a full-time Volunteer Department which has approximately 50 members. We answer approximately 900 calls (runs) a year. We respond to fires, motor vehicle accidents, fire alarms, CO alarms, haz-mat incidents and rescues.
The Flanders Fire & Rescue Squad also responds to other towns in need (Mutual-Aid). We help cover towns like Budd Lake, Chester, Long Valley, Netcong, Roxbury and Hackettstown.
