Hampton Township Fire & Rescue

September 22, 2014, Andover, NJ — This week, our Andover office spotlights Hampton Township Fire & Rescue, marking 15 years of service in 2014.

Hampton Township Fire & Rescue was founded in March 1999 as Hampton Township Volunteer Fire Department, with 10 members signing the incorporation papers. After 9 months of hard work by the volunteers and township officials, the department officially began responding to fire calls in January of 2000 under the direction of Chief J. Klein. In May of 2000, the department moved into its new firehouse on Halsey Road, where it housed three emergency vehicles, all of which were blue. In the department's first year of answering calls, members responded to about 100 calls for assistance.

In 2002, the town and department collaborated with local residents to build a second firehouse on Kemah-Mecca Lake Road near Crandon Lakes. In January of 2004, the need for emergency medical services was recognized, and the town helped the fire department establish its own rescue squad, changing the name of the department to Hampton Fire & Rescue, Inc.

With a membership of more than 60 firefighters, fire police, first responders, EMTs, and auxiliary, the department is more than capable of meeting the needs of the township residents and neighboring communities through mutual aid.

In celebration of its 15 year anniversary, Hampton Township Fire & Rescue is hosting the 94th Annual Sussex County Fireman's Association Inspection Day & Parade on October 4, 2014. Festivities for the parade will begin on Saturday, September 27 with the department's traditional hose laying contest, in which members of local fire departments will compete in a relay race connecting lengths of hose and a nozzle to a fire hydrant in the hopes of knocking down a target with the resulting spray. This event takes place at 11:00 AM at Lowe's in Newton. There will be refreshments and souvenirs for sale.

The parade itself will take place in Hampton Township on October 4 at 1:00 PM. It begins on Garrett Drive and ends at the Hampton Township Park. Following conclusion of the parade, refreshments will be available. Trophies will be awarded at approximately 5:00 PM. Public parking for this event is located at Kittatinny Regional High School, with road closures beginning around 12:00 PM.

Other upcoming fundraisers include:

  • Christmas tree and wreath sale – November 28 through December 23
  • Easter Flower Sale 2015
  • Pancake Breakfast with the Easter Bunny
  • Mother's Day flower sale
  • Spring Community Flea Market
