River Vale Firefighters Online


Electrical Fires


Electrical fires in our homes claim the lives of some 280 Americans each year and injure 1,000 more. Some of these fires are caused by electrical system failures, but many more are caused by incorrectly installed wiring and overloaded circuits and extension cords. FEMA and the U.S. Fire Administration would like you to know that there are simple steps you can take to prevent the loss of life and property resulting from electrical fires.


What do we do?

The River Vale Fire Department is an organization of dedicated volunteers who are committed to serving the community by protecting life, property, and the environment through prevention, education,and fire services. We also sponsor school scholarships, town sports and participate in fundraisers and town events throughout the year.


Want to make a difference?

The River Vale Volunteer Fire Department is always looking for new members for our regular ranks (18+ years of age) and our junior ranks (14-17 years of age).
