We provide Fire Protection and Emergency Medical Service (EMS) to our community, as well as mutual aid services to our surrounding municipalities. All of our services are performed by your friends and neighbors—our volunteers—and are performed with professionalism and excellence.
All of our services are provided by volunteers, and we're always recruiting new members to join our department. Whether you would be volunteering for the first time or are a career volunteer, we encourage you to reach out and see how you can help your community.
Members joining the LTVFD to actively fight fires must attend and pass the NJ Division of Fire Safety Firefighter 1 Course.
Members joining the LTVFD to actively run emergency medical calls must attend and pass a NJ State EMT Course.
Anyone over the age of 16 can join to learn about the basic community service skills needed to be a firefighter or EMT.
As a volunteer department, our operational expenses are mainly covered by generous donations and community fundraisers. Every fundraiser provides the department with funds needed to stock supplies, buy new gear, and provide training opportunities to our members.
From September to May, we host an all-you-can-eat Pancake Breakfast on the second Sunday of each month. Indulge yourself with pancakes, sausage, eggs, and toast, and meet the members of our department.
Drop your gently used clothes in the collection shed next to Station 2, located on Hill Road, as a quick and easy way to support our department. Good, clean used items, including clothes, sheets, shoes, belts, purses, bedding and stuffed animals are needed. Each month, these items are collected and our department receives a small donation for each pound of usable clothing donated.
To make sure your donation remains clean and usable, please place it in a plastic bag before placing in the donation shed.
The simplest way to support our department is to give a tax-deductible donation. Monthly, yearly, and one-time donations are accepted and ensure that we can provide the best services possible. Donations can be mailed or delivered to our department mailbox at Town Hall, and all checks should be made out to Lebanon Township Volunteer Fire Department. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as linked below.
In order to make our services more available to the community, some of our common forms can be found below. Please deliver these forms to either a department member or to our department mailbox at Town Hall.
If your organization is in need of a fire and/or EMS stand-by, please complete and submit this application well in advance of your event date.
Renovated in 2016, our hall is available for your next party. Please contact us for available dates or to meet with an Officer to fill out the rental agreement form.
To apply for a burn permit for any large scale bonfires or campfires in non-commercial products, please contact the NJ State Forest Fire Service.
Many fire events can be prevented or mitigated just by being educated on proper procedures. Make sure your family has a plan to evacuate your house in the event of a fire. Every year we visit the local elementary schools to teach fire safety and prevention, and upon request we will host additional or more advanced classes.
CPR (Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation) is an important skill to know if someone nearby suddenly goes into cardiac arrest. Studies have shown maximum survivability for cardiac arrest when CPR is initiated immediately after calling 911. If you wish to learn CPR, you can request a class to be taught for your group or association.
