Our recruitment drive is live!

The Ship Bottom Volunteer Fire Company is proud to announce the kickoff of our new recruitment website! We are very lucky and humbled to have received the SAFER Grant that allows our members to staff our apparatus every weekend as well as a pay per call incentive. This grant has many other perks to it as well. Big thank you to Firehouse Grants for aiding us throughout the grant process and Communications Solutions for knocking our Media Marketing out of the park! Our department has various skill sets outside of just fighting fire. If your interested in being apart of our team go to our new recruitment website shipbottomfirefighters.org and click join us! Opportunities present themselves everyday is this an opportunity you’d take?!

Fire prevention day at Long Beach Island School 

Today we had the pleasure of presenting to the students of the Long Beach Island grade school in ship bottom for fire prevention day. Fun was had by students, staff, and firefighters alike!

It’s a special community we have here. Two of the firefighters presenting today are alumni of LBI schools, and 20 of the students in attendance have parents that are either volunteer firefighters or EMTs here in the community.

Special thanks to lbi schools, surf city fire company and Barnegat light fire company for their assistance today
