The Township of Gloucester is served by six separate Boards of Fire Commissioners, known as Gloucester Township Fire District #1 through Gloucester Township Fire District #6, and five separate volunteer fire companies. If you have an emergency requiring a fire department response, immediately call 9-1-1 and they will dispatch the appropriate resources. If you need to contact a fire department for non-emergency purposes, such as scheduling a Smoke / Carbon Monoxide Detector inspection, obtaining an incident report copy, or seeking information about career and volunteer firefighter opportunities, it’s important to first identify the appropriate fire district / fire department.

Fire Safety Tips
- Smoke Detectors recommended on every level of the home.
- Change your battery when it’s time to change your clock.
- Test your detector once a month.
- Clean Smoke detectors using a strong vaccuum or compressed air.
- Place detector within 10 feet of sleeping areas.
- Have a qualified professional check all fuel burning appliances, furnaces, and venting and chimney systems at least once a year.
- Never keep a car running in a garage. Even if the garage doors are open. Normal circulation will not provide enough fresh air to relibly prevent a dangerous buildup of CO.
- Always monitor the stove. Never leave the stove.
- Turn pots/pans handles inward to discourage curious toddlers from reaching up and grasping at the handles.
- Keep a lid handy. If a fire erupts on the stove, put a lid on it. A larger pan will work, as will baking soda, or an extinguisher.
