Make a New Year Resolution that will change your live and save lives in 2022 – become a volunteer with the Firefighters of Gloucester Township. Our volunteers are trained to keep citizens and property safe, to bring calm to the most chaotic situations. We love what we do.
The Firefighters of Gloucester Township are comprised of four local fire companies: Blenheim, Chews Landing, Erial and Glendora.
“There are huge benefits to being a volunteer firefighter,” says Blenheim Firefighter Anthony Siciliano. Volunteers are exposed to skills and experiences that open doors to a career as a first responder or medical professional. It fosters leadership skills, builds your resume and creates friendships that will last a lifetime. “Becoming a volunteer firefighter changed the direction of my life,” says Siciliano. “And it still does.”
