The Basking Ridge Fire Company and Emergency Medical Services, a 100% voluntary organization, is always looking for township residents, or those that work in the community, to join our organization as volunteer firefighters and/or EMT's as well as auxiliary members.
If you are under 18 years of age, please take special notice. Due to the current Pandemic situation from COVID-19, we must follow guidelines from the State of NJ regarding Junior Member Firefighters and EMT's. We CAN NOT entertain new youth membership, anyone aged 16-17, at this time. We will update our site when the situation changes in the future. Please hold back from submitting your information below, as we would only have to inform you of the same over the phone.
ALL TRAINING and EQUIPMENT are provided and no prior experience is necessary.
Start by browsing for an EMT and CPR course that fits your schedule. Satisfactory completion for each is not a requirement to complete on-boarding, but it is during probationary period.
