The Verona Fire Department is an all volunteer fire department. This status saves Verona Taxpayers millions of dollars a year, while still maintaining the professionalism, quality service, and level of training found in any other fire department, career or volunteer. All Verona firefighters must obtain their Firefighter 1 certification, which is the basic training required to be a firefighter in the State of New Jersey.

We have one of the largest departments in the West Essex area: about 60 members, overseen by 6 elected officers. We have 2 stations, each with a non-residential company comprised of 28-30 regular members. The stations are on each side of the Peckman River. This is because in case the river overflows and splits the town in half, there is adequate fire protection for all residents. In case of an emergency, both firehouses serve as evacuation centers. We have 3 front line engines, 1 85′ Quint ladder truck, 1 auxiliary foam-equipped engine, a brush truck and a utility truck. We average around 330 calls for service per year. We are dispatched by the Verona Police Department.
