Many volunteers initially joined District #1 to make friends, seek fulfillment in their personal lives, or set an example for others. Regardless of your reasons for volunteering, Toms River Fire District #1 is here to help you build essential skills to carry with you for life.
See why we continue to show up and protect the citizens and guests of Toms River:
"I was looking for something to do while retired. I've found the comradery, the training, and serving my community is the real reason I continue to volunteer."
“I volunteer because I love to help others. I feel great being able to be a part of a solution and see the end result.”
“I have an opportunity to change people’s lives and make the community a safer place, while being challenged to grow mentally and physically as an individual.”
“I give my best to help those that are at their worst.”
“I volunteer to give back to my community. To ensure their lives and homes in our communities are safe.”
“Giving back to the community and the comradery of the department is why I volunteer.”
