Membership Information

Applications can be picked up at the Borough Clerk's office or can be obtained by calling the fire chief and requesting an application.Once membership is established all members are required to attend the Monmouth County Fire Academy. This is a 13-week training course, which will provide you with all the required training to be an unpaid professional. The course takes place on the weekends, and you can choose which day (Saturday or Sunday) you would like to go. There are also yearly training requirements, which are provided, to the membership in house.Becoming a member of the Shrewsbury Hose Company #1 is a great way to help the community and to make new friends and let's face it a great way to fulfill a childhood dream.


Fund Drive

The Shrewsbury Hose Company's annual fund drive is held during the month of May every year. Letters are mailed with a description of the past years events including man-hours and number of calls answered. A self-addressed envelope is provided for your convenience.

Many people ask why we have a fund drive if the borough provides us a budget? The answer would be that we are a volunteer fire department and there are many things that are not provided for in our budget. Such as building maintenance, grounds maintenance, and some equipment repair. Your generous contributions assist us in performing many activities beyond what the Borough supports.
