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 80โ€™ x 100โ€™ 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.

If your still out stay safe. Feel free to check out the local weather and follow us for more info for tomorrow

Last year Gloucester Township Fire District 1 was the host department for a regional AFG grant. We teamed up with Magnolia FC and Blenheim FC to replace our aging and out of date SCBA.

On September 8th. 2022, We received notification from FEMA of the award in the amount of $438,990.00 in total. The federal share was $ 399,081.81 and our portion was $ 39,908.19 to be split in three equally between our three departments.
In total we received 57 SCBA 114 Air cylinders, 57 masks and 3RIT packs.

2 weeks ago, the order shipped from Scott to the vender DIVAL Safety and was dropped off to Glendora. Everything was sorted and delivered to our partners. Tonight, Gloucester Township Fire District 1 hosted the regional training event we received training from DIVAL Safety. The class was well attended. We expect the new SCBA to be in service by the end of the month.
We would like the thanks the Chiefs for getting the information and to Firehouse Grants for another successful grant application.

For what reason the person was at fault or mechanical problems. I hope there was no injuries and People Have another chance to learn from their experiences. Thank you for being there and helping and sharing this.

Across the street from my old house and yes the car was speeding

I grew up on this street... speeding is an understatement. Lucky they didnt kill someone driving on a residential street like that.

Wow. Lived on that street seven years. Glad no kids got hurt.

Knuckle head

Can’t understand how this happened on a residential street with a speed limit of 25 mph๐Ÿคฆ‍โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿง๐Ÿค”

For all who needs to know steering link broke had no control of car

During last night's storms we staffed 2 pieces of apparatus and handled 4 incidents for trees down on wires and 1 on a attached garage.
We remind you trees touching power lines can transfer voltage to whatever it comes in contact with!
When in doubt.. Don't!
Leave it to the professionals.
Power lines in Glendora are handled by PSEG.

How safe is your home?

Fire Prevention

Did you know?

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 โ€œSafety 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.
