Montgomery Township Volunteer Fire Co. #2 Open House
March 28 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Montgomery Township Volunteer Fire Co. #2 has been serving the Southern part of Montgomery Township since 1946. The protection area is one of the most diverse in New Jersey, encompassing rural farmlands, Intense residential developments, multiple schools, an airport, a railroad, miles of highway, high-tech industries and possibly your home. None of the members are paid for their services. Current members are your neighbors, and they come from a diverse background including high school and college students, teachers, dentists, welders, horse trainers, plumbers, business managers, retirees and much more. The common thread is that they are all very friendly and willing to help the community. Their efforts not only keep you and your property safe, but also provide other services such as fire safety training for children and allow for reduced fire insurance rates for this fire district.
