Welcome to Highlands Fire Department

The Highlands Fire Department is an all Volunteer Organization that proudly protects an estimated 5,000 people living in an area of one square mile. Located in Highlands, NJ we operate out of one station that protects a primarily residential area. The department consists of 50 members, but is always looking to grow. The department was founded in 1900 and is composed of two companies Columbia Hose Company No. 1 & Star Hook and Ladder Company No. 2. We answer structure, brush, car and boat fire calls along with motor vehicle extrication.

HFD Robert Wilson Toys for Tots

Sunday, December 22, 2013  This year’s HFD Robert Wilson Toys for Tots drive was a great success. With the effects of Hurricane Sandy still lingering with the families of Highlands the kids were overly grateful for a day of fun with Santa. In HFD tradition all kids left the firehouse with at least two toys in their hands and of course lots of sugar via cookies, candy canes and hot chocolate. We thank all of our sponsors this year, to name just a few: Yorktel, Watnong VFW Post No 3401 and Bay Ave Bakery & Café.

HFD takes Delivery

Friday, August 30, 2013   The Highlands Fire Department is proud to take delivery of the NEW 17-90. We commend all of those who worked so hard on this project. The last time HFD took delivery of new apparatus was 18 years ago with the addition of 17-77 and the last time we took delivery of a ladder truck was 35 years ago! We are extremely excited to put her into service. The next step will be training to get all personnel up to speed with the new technology that is incorporated into this piece of apparatus.
