A Brief History

The Bargaintown Volunteer Fire Company #2 was founded in 1932 with one fire station located on Mill Road. We are the second of five fire companies that were formed to create the Egg Harbor Township Fire Department, the first being the Cardiff Volunteer Fire Company #1 in 1927. Today Bargaintown has two fire stations one located at 6550 Mill Road and a second at 1 Tony “Mink” Pagano Drive to help us respond to the almost 500 calls we get per year.

NJ FOREST FIRE SERVICE PROVIDING AID IN CALIFORNIA, NEVADA, AND COLORADO

We would like to extend a thank you to all of the members of the New Jersey Forest Fire Service who are currently fighting the Carr Fire in California, the Red Canyon Fire in Colorado, and the two trucks stationed in Elko, Nevada.

“The New Jersey Forest Fire Service has a proud record of helping out western states during their time of need,” said Department of Environmental Protection Commissioner Catherine R. McCabe. “Although these fires may be thousands of miles away, our men and women of the Forest Fire Service share a deep sense of duty in protecting lives and properties when wildfires strike in other states.”

“Our crews have extensive experience in fighting volatile forest fires, particularly in the fire-prone Pine Barrens,” said New Jersey State Firewarden Greg McLaughlin. “Our crews will provide invaluable support, helping to provide some relief to firefighters who have been working round the clock to control these wildfires.”

In addition, this summer Forest Fire Service personnel have also assisted with wildfires in Nevada, Texas and Idaho.

These out of state assignments have no impacts on the ability of the Forest Fire Service to fight any wildfires in New Jersey.
