We are Volunteers

E-mail Print PDF

The Hillsdale Fire Department is comprised of men and women who volunteer their time to provide fire prevention and suppresion services to the borough. From the day we enter the Fire Academy to the day we retire, we spend a huge amount of time training. We have monthly drills at headquarters. We meet regularly with other departments to cross-train and develop strategies for safety. Many of us go to conferences within and outside NJ to learn more about fire fighting. If you think you have what it takes to be part of an elite group of individuals dedicated to serving their community, consider joining. You'll be glad you did. So will we.

Fire Department Cadet Company

The Hillsdale Fire Department Cadet Company is comprised of guys and girls, ages 16 to 17. It is designed to assist regular members of the department at fires and drills. Unlike the regular members of the fire department, cadets cannot by law, enter a burning structure, so rest easy Moms! Instead, they can “hit” or hook up hose to the hydrants, change air bottles, set up ladders, bring tools to the firefighters, and help keep track of the firefighters going in and out of the building. They have their own drills to learn these specific tasks, and can also attend regular fire department drills to learn how to work with the regular firefighters.
