The Flanders Fire Company No. 1 has the responsibility to respond to fire and EMS emergencies within Mt. Olive Township, Flanders and the surrounding communities. The Company has the duty to maintain all the emergency vehicles and all the equipment used to protect the lives, the property of Flanders residents, those passing through as well as those who live in surrounding towns. The Fire Company is also responsible for attaining the best possible equipment and the continuous training of our volunteer members-- both for their safety and the safety of all whom we protect.
The Fire Company and Rescue Squad is a 100% Volunteer Department, which has approximately 40 active members. We answer approximately 1300 calls (also called runs) a year. We support our neighboring towns with mutual aid for both fire and EMS emergencies. We respond to fires, motor vehicle accidents, fire alarms, CO (carbon monoxide) alarms, hazardous material incidents, rescues and medical emergencies. The Flanders Fire and Rescue Squad response mutual-aid into Budd Lake, Chester, Long Valley, Netcong, Roxbury, Stanhope and Hackettstown to name a few. We have responded as far as New Orleans, La. to provide emergency support during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
