History

The initial meeting held on October 27, 1925 in the home of Harry Gross was for the purpose of organizing the Glendora Volunteer Fire Company #1.

Prior to this date the Glendora men had been members of the Chews Landing Company that answered calls in the Glendora area. On November 25, 1925 the first officers were elected and it was decided that Tuesday night would be the time to meet and is still the meeting night of the company.

The first ground purchased by the fire company was the 80’ x 100’ lot on Seventh Avenue for $ 900.00 dollars the first Chief was elected on December 29, 1925. On January 7, 1926 the Incorporation papers were completed and in July the by-laws were accepted.

*** PRESS RELEASE***
FIRE DISTRICT ACHIEVES ISO RATING OF CLASS 03

The Board of Fire Commissioners Fire District 1 and the Glendora Fire Company are pleased to share with our residents and businesses owners the following.

For many years we have been classified by the Insurance Services Office( ISO) as a class 4 rated department.

We have been working to achieve a better rating for our residents and businesses.

We are please to announce that we have achieved the classification rating of 3! On a scale of 1 to 10 with “1” being the best and “10” the worst.

Below is a brief explanation of what the meaning of the rating means to you…

RE: Gloucester Ts Fd 1, Camden County, New Jersey
Mr. Howard Brooks, Board Chairman
Gloucester TS FD 1 P.O. Box 38 Glendora, New Jersey, 08029
Public Protection Classification: 03
Effective Date: March 01, 2023

We thank you and Chief Michael Ricciardelli for your cooperation during our recent Public Protection Classification (PPC) survey. ISO has completed its analysis of the structural fire suppression delivery system provided in your community.
PPC is important to communities and fire departments as well. Communities whose PPC improves may get lower insurance prices. PPC also provides fire departments with a valuable benchmark and is used by many departments as a valuable tool when planning, budgeting and justifying fire protection improvements.
Most insurers use PPC classifications for underwriting and calculating premiums for residential, commercial, and industrial properties.
Manager -National Processing Center ISO appreciates the high level of cooperation extended by local officials during the entire PPC survey process. The community protection baseline information gathered by ISO is an essential foundation upon which determination of the relative level of fire protection is made using the Fire Suppression Rating Schedule.
The classification is a direct result of the information gathered, and is dependent on the resource levels devoted to fire protection in existence at the time of survey.

This afternoon TF81 was dispatched to a reported Dwelling fire in the area of 12th. and Central Ave. in the Glendora section.
Chief 8, Squad 88 and Quint 7 arrived in location to smoke showing from division A. Squad 88 stretched a hand-line to the front door and Quint 7 forced entry. The fire was held to the front porch area. Crews performed a primary search and removed 15 small dogs all were fine.
Squad 81 was rerouted to Runnemede for a Natural Gas leak that was flowing from a cut line from a contractor.
The fire doesn't appear to be suspicious and is being investigated by Fire District No.1 Fire Marshall.
Thanks to our Mutual Aid Partners for the assistance.

TF81 was dispatched late this afternoon for a reported dwelling fire in the Fernwood section of Glendora. 8101 reported a large black column of smoke from a mile out. SD88 was instructed to pick up the hydrant and lay in and proceed with a large caliber hand-line to the rear to knock the fire down. Crew were hampered by arching Power lines to the dwelling. The arriving companies were put to work as they arrived on location.Quint 7 stretched a additional hand-line in the front door. Fire crews from Glendora, Somerdale, Chews Landing and Runnemede rotated in and out on the hose lines and performed overhaul operations.
Only one reported injury to a firefighter and they refused treatment.
The fire is under investigation by the Camden County FM and GTPD.
Thank you to our Mutual Aid partners.

This was my Grandparent’s home for over 50 years. I loved this little piece of Glendora & I’m so heartbroken to hear this & I am truly sorry to the family who currently owns this home, my heart goes out to you & my prayers 🙏💔

We’re you guys able to save the house or is it considered a complete loss???

Anyone have any info on the family? Can we donate things to help?

So sorry to see this!!🙏😥

Thank you to everyone who helped out today!

How safe is your home?

Safety Tips

Most fire fatalities occur in your home.
Fire victims die of smoke inhalation, poisonous gases, or lack of oxygen, not from severe burns!
Cooking is the leading cause of residential fires and burns.
Careless smoking is still the leading cause of residential fire deaths.

Make sure your family has an escape plan.
Sleep with your door closed. A closed door provides safety against heat and smoke.
Install a smoke detector in every bedroom and change the batteries twice a year, use the time change as a reminder.
Crawl low in smoke. In a fire, the super heated air and toxic gases fill the room from the top down. These leaves a “Safety Zone” of breathable air about 12 to 24 inches above the floor.

Have everyone in the household listen to the smoke alarm, so they will be aware of what it sounds like.
Put matches and lighters out of reach of little ones.
