Dear Valued Residents and Business Owners:


The members of the Totowa Fire Department hope that this letter finds you all healthy and safe. We all know and understand the effects of the pandemic on our everyday lives. Despite the uncertainties of the present day, our members still respond when called upon for emergencies the same way we have since our forefathers founded the department. 


Last year, out of an abundance of caution, we stopped our door-to-door fundraising campaign and relied on your generosity through our mail in, PayPal, and Venmo options. This year, for the safety of the entire community, we will do the same. We hope that you can help us by donating so that our department can continue to protect our community. 


Our department has grown to 72 members who serve out of the town’s four firehouses. Each one of our VOLUNTEER members does so unselfishly, and on their own time. We respond to all emergency calls 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, no matter the weather or the circumstances. Your support helps us to provide the training and equipment that our members need to provide the quickest, most efficient response. 


WHEN IN DOUBT, GIVE US A SHOUT! Please be sure to check your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors! The normal life expectancy for a snake detector is 10 years, while that of a carbon monoxide detector is 7 years. Unsure if your detector needs to be replaced? Give our department a call and we can assist you in determining whether your detector(s) needs replacing. If either detector sounds, call 9-1-1 right away!


We thank you for your continued support - without you we cannot be effective in protecting our community. 


To make it more convenient to contribute, we have added VENMO and PAYPAL along with our usual mail-in envelopes. We thank you for your continued support. Stay safe.
