Welcome to Highlands Fire Department
The Highlands Fire Department is an all Volunteer Organization that proudly protects an estimated 5,000 people living in an area of one square mile. Located in Highlands, NJ we operate out of one station that protects a primarily residential area. The department consists of 50 members, but is always looking to grow. The department was founded in 1900 and is composed of two companies Columbia Hose Company No. 1 & Star Hook and Ladder Company No. 2. We answer structure, brush, car and boat fire calls along with motor vehicle extrication.

Rain moves in overnight tonight
The heaviest rain falls during the day Friday, especially between roughly 10am and 5pm, before rain winds down in the evening. The heaviest amounts look to be roughly along and just south of the I-95 corridor where a Flood Watch is in effect.
A general 1 to 2 inches of rain can be expected with locally higher amounts possible. This will likely result in some urban and small stream flooding with more localized flash flooding also possible. In addition, rises on rivers can be expected with the potential for some points to exceed flood stage. However, this will be heavily dependent on where the heaviest rain sets up
We are currently in a flood watch until tomorrow night. Please make sure you are prepared and move your cars in flood prone areas of town. ... See MoreSee Less

Busy morning for the HFD... early this morning we responded to a single car accident with roll over on HWY 36 south bound. Both occupants were transported to Monmouth Medical Center by the Highlands First aid squad. Then a couple hours later FD responded to CO alarm on Portland RD.
Please drive safe and leave extra time for travel the next few days. The weather forecast is calling for heavy rains tonight and tomorrow. ... See MoreSee Less
