Have you ever considered giving back to your community? Do you enjoy helping others? If so, you should consider a position with the Berkeley Heights Fire Department. The Department is always looking for volunteers.
The Berkeley Heights Fire Department responds to approximately 800 calls for service each year. These calls range from assisting members of the public with their fire protection system to multi-alarm structure fires. Members are also highly trained in a variety of technical rescue fields. Berkeley Heights firefighters are prepared for incidents involving vehicle extrication, confined space rescue, trench rescue, and hazardous materials. Berkeley Heights firefighters also meet every Wednesday to train with life saving equipment and learn about the latest in firefighting techniques. All members are provided with the necessary equipment and training at no cost. Every new firefighter is required to attend a State mandated Firefighter I course in order to be considered a certified member.
Membership to the Departmentís Junior Division is open to high school students between the ages of 16 and 18. Junior members respond to incidents and assist with non-hazardous tasks both during training and actual calls. All Junior members are also afforded the opportunity to attend a special Junior Fire Academy held each year in Morris County.
