About the Elizabeth Township Volunteer Fire Companies

Elizabeth Township has five volunteer fire companies that proudly serve its residents, visitors and businesses with 24-hour fire and emergency services protection. Our fire companies also provide automatic and mutual-aid response to neighboring communities and counties when requested. All of the Elizabeth Township firefighters are 100%volunteer.  These first responders are highly trained and dedicated residents of our community who have full-time jobs, family commitments, and the same daily routines as every resident–except when they are called to respond to a fire or other emergency. Please keep that in mind when you see our firefighters responding to fires and other emergencies throughout Elizabeth Township and other communities, they are leaving their families and are putting their needs aside to respond to your fire or emergency.

How you can help your local fire company!

  • Participate in annual fund drives. Please be generous when your local  firefighters send out their fund drive letters.
  • Attend fundraising events sponsored by the companies. These events raise money that is critical to continued fire safety services.
  • Volunteer your time and talents with your local department. People interested in being trained as firefighters are always needed, and so are people to help with bingo nights, fish fries, fundraising events, and business activities. Whatever time you have, there’s a job for you at the local fire department.
  • Mark your home clearly with house numbers at least 3 inches tall (6 inches for businesses) so that your building can be quickly located in the event of an emergency. Numbers should be easily visible and may be placed on mailboxes if directly in front of the building.
Be Smart! Fire Safety Tips


Use Smoke alarms, carbon monoxide alarms and practice fire safety every day.

  • Test alarm monthly.

  • Change the battery at least once each year.

  • Replace all types of smoke alarms after 10 years.

  • Install alarms in high places on every level of your home, in every bedroom, and next to every sleeping area.

  • Make sure everyone knows the sound of the alarm.

  • Plan your escape route and agree on a meeting place outside.

  • When the alarm sounds, get out fast and call the fire department from a neighbor’s house.

  • Once out, stay out!

  • Close your bedroom door at night.
