The West Paterson Volunteer Fire Department, serving the Borough of Woodland Park, has been in existence since the birth of our community in 1914. We are a 100% VOLUNTEER organization with approximately 75 dedicated men and women. Our department consists of 3 fire companies: Company #1 (on West 35th Street), Company #2 (on McBride Ave. across from B.G. School) and Company #3 (located on Rifle Camp Road). Each fire company is responsible for maintaining their own building; including, (but not limited to), paying utility bills, roof repairs, AND maintaining the heating & air conditioning systems.
Your annual donations are collected by the Fire Department and distributed in two ways. Three quarters of your donation go directly to each company. The remainder is kept by the West Paterson Volunteer Fire Department. The donations that are received are used for the training of our members, which includes state mandated courses by certified instructors, upgrading equipment, and maintenance. This has allowed the West Paterson Volunteer Fire Department to receive a “Class 3 ISO Rating”. This rating directly affects the lowering of your homeowner’s insurance.
Thank you in advance for your generous contribution and continued support of our fire department!
