Flanders Fire Co. #1
and Rescue Squad
The Flanders Fire Department has the responsibility of keeping up with all Federal, State, and local laws, procedures, and policies that oversee the Fire Service. The Department also has the duty to maintain all the emergency response vehicles (both fire and ems) and all other equipment used to protect the lives and property of the Flanders residents, those passing through as well as those who live in surrounding towns. The Fire & EMS 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 & EMS Department is a full-time Volunteer Department, which has approximately 30 active members. We answer approximately 900 calls (runs) a year in the Flanders area. We support our neighboring towns with mutual aid for both fire and ems emergencies. We respond to fires, motor vehicle accidents, fire alarms, CO alarms, haz-mat incidents and rescues.
The Flanders Fire & Rescue Squad responds Mutual-Aid into Budd Lake, Chester, Long Valley, Netcong, Roxbury, Stanhope and Hackettstown to name a few. We have responded as far away as New Orleans, LA to provide emergency support.
