Be smart about what lithium ion battery powered products you buy and use! Be careful were you store them ;) As you see in this video, storing them inside your home; especially in places that are near to exits is extremely dangerous. Always purchase products that are recognized by a national testing laboratory and follow the manufactures recommendations for storage, use, and charging.

History of the Florence Twp Fire Dept

In April 1912, a pharmacist by the name of Henry O. Adams used his spare First motorized engine for Florence Township Fire Departmenttime to gather signatures from the townspeople of Florence in order to start an organized volunteer fire company. Mr. Adams’ efforts paid off and a charter was created and the Florence Fire Company No. 1 was born.

The Florence Township Fire Department operates 2 command vehicles, 2 Engines, 1 Tower Ladder, 1 Rescue Truck, 1 3000 Gallon Tanker, 2 State Certified Ambulances, 1 Boat for Delaware River Operations, 1 Fire Police Vehicle, and 3 support vehicles.

We cover an area of approximately 10.18 square miles, along with areas on the NJ Turnpike, Interstate 295 and State Highway 130. We provide Fire suppression, prevention and investigation along with EMS and Rescue services to 14,000 residents and an estimated 50,000 per day transient population using our interstates and highways.
