VOLUNTEER MEMBERSHIP/AGE POLICY
The Board recognizes the need and importance for continual recruitment of
Volunteers in order to carry out the Board's mandated responsibilities to
provide fire prevention, protection and prevention of fires within the District.
The Board further recognizes the New Jersey State Firemen's Association has
an age limitation on new fire fighters. The Board finds adherence to said
age limitation detrimental to the Fire District and therefore waives same
provided the fire fighter remains under the maximum age established by Township
Waiver of the age limitation does not, however, waive the physical requirements
established by the New Jersey State Firemen's Association which must be passed
by each new volunteer. Any Volunteer accepted beyond the New Jersey State
Firemen's Association age limitation shall be required to execute a Release
indicating he/she will not be entitled to New Jersey Firemen's Association

qualifications of the volunteers. Therefore, the Board requires that all
volunteers reside within the Fire District at the time of application. The Board also requires that all Fire Officers shall reside within Fire
District #1 during their term of appointment. The Board further reserves
unto itself the right to promulgate rules and regulations to effectuate this
