MILLTOWN FIRE DEPARTMENT
The Milltown Fire Department was incorporated on Feb. 22, 1911 as The Eureka Fire Company No. 1. In 1922, this Company was disbanded and two new Companies were Incorporated:
Eureka Engine Co. No. 1 located on South Main Street which currently houses 2 Engines.
Eureka Hose Company No. 1 located on Cottage Avenue which currently houses 1 Engine and 1 Ladder.
We are also the proud owners of a 1921 American LaFrance 750gpm Pumper, which is used for parades and shows.
The Milltown Fire Department is governed by a Board of Fire Officers consisting of the Chief, Deputy Chief and Assistant Chief. Each company has a Captain, 1st Lt. and 2nd Lt. who run each fire house.
We are a volunteer organization and our equipment is funded by the Borough of Milltown.
Several fund raisers are held throughout the year to support the fire department treasuries. These funds are used for membership expenses, to support community activities such as sponsorship in the Milltown Little League and to support various charities inlcuding a scholarship for high school seniors.
