Oaklyn Fire Dept
The Oaklyn Fire Department (Station 18) is an all-volunteer organization that provides the primary fire and rescue services to the borough of Oaklyn, NJ and mutual aid to many surrounding towns. We are also in a mutual aid alliance with Audubon and Mount Ephraim Fire Departments. We are dispatched to calls for service by the Camden County Communications Center.
We are a municipal fire department and operate out of a single fire station at 20 W. Clinton Avenue in Oaklyn, Camden County, New Jersey. We respond to approximately 300-350 calls annually. We are operationally led by our Fire Chief (Chief 18) and administratively, as a non-profit organization, by our President.
We are financially supported by the Borough of Oaklyn, however as an offset to taxes, we also rely on donations and various fundraising efforts throughout to year. This allows us maintain our equipment and complete capital improvements to better serve our community.
We currently operate an engine, ladder, utility, rescue boat, and command vehicle. You can learn more about our equipment in our apparatus section or by clicking here.
Membership is currently available to those over 18 years old that are willing to sacrifice their time and talents to the community. We have both firefighting and active membership categories. An application for membership can be completed here.
Our firefighter’s primary duties are to respond to emergency calls to the community where as our active members primary duties consist of fundraising and support to firefighting efforts.
We have weekly training (1st/2nd/4th Monday) and monthly meetings (3rd Monday) that are also a part of all member’s responsibilities. For more information or questions about membership please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
