Today, our firefighters receive continual training beginning with Fire Fighter I, a 180 hour intensive course of instruction followed by regular in-house training drills once a month. Most members go to the Morris County Firefighters and Police Academy for the initial training, but have in the past attended schools in Wayne (North Jersey School), and Sea Girt (NJ State Fire School). Continuing education seminars and special courses have been presented by Rutgers University, New York City Fire Dept. members, Hazardous Materials Handling Companies, and on occasion the manufacturers of special equipment. Members also get training in Fire prevention and safety, and also bring Fire Awareness into our township school system with programs presented every October during Fire Prevention week. Most of our members continue their training at the Morris County Firefighters Academy with courses ranging from Firefighter II, to rope rescue, vehicle rescue, truck company operations, and many others covering almost every facet of the modern fire service.
Much credit must be given to the six men who started the Company, and the now 58 + members who drop EVERYTHING when the alarm sounds, responding to the call of a community in need, 24/7.
