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.

At about 8:11PM yesterday evening HFD was dispatched to a working structure fire on Highland Avenue. Chief, two engines, aerial, rescue truck, Fire Police, First Aid and HPD responded. On arrival HFD found flames rising above the back of the house and through the roof. Lines were stretched from the aerial and engine with mutual aid assisting with initial attack and overhaul. Mutual aid calls went out and fire units responded from Atlantic Highlands, Middletown and Sea Bright. First Aid units from Atlantic Highlands and Rumson responded. Rumson and Middletown Company Brevent Park responded and stood by our firehouse for coverage within the Borough.
Highway 36 was closed at Linden Avenue due to units stagged on the highway and a supply line stretching across the 4 lanes of traffic. Fire was knocked down and units began to clear around 10:30PM. Fire Police stayed on scene until 11:00PM directing traffic. NJDOT and State Police Incident Management Unit assisted. The Chief cleared around 11:22PM.
One resident was transported to the hospital for treatment of smoke inhalation. No other major injuries reported or damage to adjacent structures. Photos from Laurie Kegley and Ray Vargas. ... See MoreSee Less
