The Raritan Township Fire Company is located in Hunterdon County NJ, was founded in 1958 and is 100% volunteer. It currently operates out of three firehouses and is responsible for the 38 square miles surrounding the borough of Flemington, including the life and property of over 25,000 residents. On average, the fire company responds to 600 yearly calls and participates in many community events.


R.T.F.C. Orders New Engine!


The fire company has recently put in an order for a brand new Pierce Arrow XT Pumper. This new engine will have a very similar design to Engine 21. This rig will carry 2,000 gallons of water to ensure water is nearby to areas with or without fire hydrants in the event of a fire. We are expected to take delivery of this new engine in the later part of 2021. If you have any questions regarding the new apparatus, please feel free to reach out to us on Facebook.

Probationary to Firefighter


Congratulations to Christian Callahan on receiving his NJ Firefighter 1 Certification. Christian has been with the department since 2016 as a junior and then probationary member. He has proven to be a dedicated member, helping out in any way he can. While working, going to school, and completing his FF1, he has been working hard to get his EMT as well. We are proud to welcome this new firefighter to the team.

R.T.F.C. Welcomes 2 New Members


The Raritan Township Fire Company would like to welcome two new members to the R.T.F.C. family. Dylan Brechka and Jason Chapman will be joining the team to serve Raritan Twp.


Dylan is joining our junior program and hopes to become a firefighter one day. When Dylan is not attending his sophomore year at  Hunterdon Central High School he enjoys skiing, mountain biking, and hiking. Dylan joined because he wishes to help his local community. Welcome aboard Dylan.

Jason Chapman has also been voted on, as a probationary member. Jason is originally from Piscataway and has recently moved to the twp. He is currently a part of the Newark Public School System as a teacher in Health/Physical Ed. and loves it, but hopes to take a new direction to become a career firefighter! Jason is especially fond of helping others, as seen in his current occupation. He has recently been working on his Firefighter 1 certification, however, COVID has put that on hold. While the program is expected to open back up early next year, we are excited to welcome a new member to the family and help Jason in his future endeavors.

Operation Santa Complete


Every year the Raritan Township Fire Company helps Santa spread some holiday cheer on the firetruck. Although this year has been limiting due to COVID, we are pleased to be able to continue the tradition. We are glad Santa could join us for such an occasion and we look forward to helping him visit the Twp. next year.


Happy Holidays from the R.T.F.C. Family!
