Description
Organized fire protection in Jersey City began on September 21, 1829 with the Volunteer Liberty Engine Company One. Since that time, the Division of Fire has grown with the City. Presently, the Jersey City Division of Fire is comprised of 550 uniformed members and 50 civilian employees.


The Division of Fire maintains a fleet of 28 pieces of front line fire apparatus which include pumper trucks, ladder trucks, rescue trucks, a hazardous materials unit (HAZMAT) and a mask service unit (MSU).  View a map of station and equipment locations here. 

Fire companies respond from 17 fire stations located throughout the City. Last year, the Fire Department responded to over 18,000 fire alarms, emergencies, and requests for medical assistance. All members of the Division of Fire receive first responder training and all vehicles are equipped with automatic defibrillators.
