of Red Bank Fire Department
The City of
Red Bank Fire Department was organized in 1971. Prior to
that fire service was provided by a private concern on a
subscription basis. Funding for the department comes from
city taxes and $821,505 was budgeted for fiscal year 2007.
Red Bank Fire Department in 1971
responds not only to fires, but also provides rescue services,
hazardous materials response, service calls and public education
programs. During 2006, the RBFD responded to 678 alarms.
Due to the actions of the department, an estimated $159,078,265
worth of property was saved in the city.
The RBFD operates
out of 2 stations, which are manned 24 hours a day. The
membership consists of members who work full-time as their
career, members who receive compensation for working part-time
shifts and are paid on call, and volunteer members who receive
no compensation for services rendered. All members are treated
equal and all members carry pagers in order to respond to
alarms when needed.
