About the RBFD

The Red Bank Fire Department founded in 1872, has a long and proud history of fire fighting service.

In 2007 it celebrated its 135th anniversary. The RBFD History page describes our past and present operations within the Borough of Red Bank. This is an organization comprised entirely of volunteers dedicated to protect property and life against fire hazards. The RBFD is also responsible for first aid medical assistance and rescue operations in the community.

The RBFD is organized into the "Office Of The Chief", six fire fighting companies, a Fire Police Company and the First Aid & Rescue Squad. Further support is provided to the Department by its Scuba Diving Team, the Department's Fire Cadets and the Ladies Auxiliary.

Administrative authority resides with the Fire Department Executive Council.
