HANOVER TOWNSHIP — Whippany Fire is always looking for dedicated members. All training and equipment is provided and anyone over the age of 16 is invited to apply.
Members are expected to live within Hanover Township (or the immediate vicinity) and complete the Firefighter 1 training course at the Morris County Public Safety Training Academy within one year of joining and to maintain themselves in shape capable of handling the rigorous demands of the job.
Volunteering with the Whippany Fire Department is one of the most rewarding volunteer experiences you will find. Our volunteers come from a variety of backgrounds. We have members from law enforcement to the trucking industry. Our volunteers are parents and students. Our volunteers have careers and families, yet they give of their time and talents freely, to help answer the call of those in need.
Members dedicate their time and talents to answer hundreds of emergency calls each year. In addition, they attend monthly business and training meetings, help with fund raisers, keep vehicles, buildings and equipment, clean and in working order, and all the other “behind the scenes work” that goes on.
This is not meant to scare off would be volunteers, but to give you a sense of what the dedicated men and women in your community go through for you and your family. The reasons people volunteer vary, but the outcome is always the same…help and compassion toward our neighbors and families, and a gift back to the community.
The Whippany Fire Department is located at 440 State Route 10, Whippany.
