Effective March 19, 2020: All classes scheduled at or by the Academy are suspended until further notice.

We will begin work on rescheduling classes in the interim as we learn the possible relaxation of the Governor’s Emergency Order and make the appropriate notifications as they are done. This also includes any groups and vendors scheduled to use the building.  Please contact the vendor for additional information on their classes. If you have any questions, please call the Academy at 973-285-2979.

May 19, 2020 Update: Attention all Junior Firefighters – due to the COVID-19 pandemic we unfortunately have to cancel all summer Junior firefighting classes.

However, if you are turning the age of 18 between now and September 1, you may enroll in our upcoming Firefighter 1 class that is starting July 13 thru August 14. Please be advised that we will create a waiting list of these names and there is no guarantee you will be entered into the class. You will need to submit a new registration form with proof of age and signed parental permission form.
