Located on the Southern part of Long Beach Island, The Beach Haven Volunteer Fire Company # 1 was established in 1883, we are the oldest Volunteer Fire Company in Ocean County. We average around 270 calls per year, ranging from structure fires to water and ice rescues to fire alarms. We specialize in water and ice rescue, as well as light vehicle extrication.
It is with deep regret that the Beach Haven Volunteer Fire Company announces the passing of Life Member Leroy Rossell, after a battle with cancer. Leroy was Chief Engineer for many years. Leroy is the great uncle of our current Chief & Deputy Chief and is also the uncle & of a few other current Firefighters. Leroy is a Past Chief of Tuckerton Fire Company as well as Past Chief of Siloh-Columbia Fire Company in North Carolina where he resided. There will be services in New Jersey sometime in July. Rest Easy Brother.
Attention Home and Business Owners: The Knox Box System is available in our area. The Knox-Box Rapid Entry System is a secure emergency access program developed for property owners and first responders. First Responders across North America use the Knox-Box Rapid Entry System to prevent costly entry damage while protecting property and lives. When a fire breaks out, Knox products allow immediate entry into buildings and property without forced entry damage or delay. Property owners store entrance keys, access cards and floor plans in high-security Knox-Box key boxes mounted near building entrances. Each Knox-Box purchased by a property owner is keyed to a single master key controlled by the local responding department. Increased property damage and even total loss is a threat when property is not accessible. The Knox Rapid Entry System was developed to save property and lives.
