Fire Department

The Haddon Heights Fire Department is primarily a Volunteer Fire Department that proudly celebrated its centennial in 2004. The Department was incorporated December 4, 1904.
Over the years many innovations have changed the way the Haddon Heights Fire Department provides service to the residents of Haddon Heights as well as many surrounding communities. Although there have been many changes in the way service is provided, the purpose of the Department has remained constant: provide the citizens of Haddon Heights professional, state of the art fire
suppression service at a reasonable cost while maintaining the highest degree of safety to its members as well as those being served.
