Decrease taxes, make our department part-time...Get more help at a HUGE saving!

Many people have expressed a similar opinion. I would suggest that in order to understand the complete scope of what our FD does and their responsibilities, people should get more information from members of the governing body or the township administrator. For example, the Springfield FD is responsible for responding to calls on the roadways too (i.e., Rt. 22 and Rt. 78), as well life threatening medical issues, since the members are parameds.

Yes, true...however there is no way to bill for service since our Dept does not transport patients in an ambulance. Kenilworth FD does the same Fire related service AND transports sick people to the emergency room and they do it all on a volunteer basis without the extremely high salaries of our Dept. Please, inquire about how much our Fire Dept does on a daily/annual basis. And our FF's are not paramedics, they are basic EMT's the same level as our First Aid Squad or like our neighbors in Kenilworth. The cost does not make sense.
