For over 100 years, the members of Hawthorne Volunteer Fire Department have served the Hawthorne community with pride and dedication.  We are an all volunteer organization that relies on your continued support to supplement necessary resources.
Our dedicated men and women are ready to respond to your emergencies:

  • 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, and 365 days per year
  • All times of the day and night
  • In all types of weather

They leave their jobs and their families at a moment’s notice, ready to place their lives in harms way to protect your lives and property.  Tens of thousands of man hours each year are placed into:

  • Responses to your emergencies
  • Training and drills
  • Developing prevention and education programs
  • Participating in community events

This type of dedication and commitment is tough to come by, yet it is one of the reasons that the Borough of Hawthorne is great place to live and work.  These firefighters are your neighbors and co-workers.
Please consider making a tax deductible donation to the Hawthorne Volunteer Fire Department.  We need your support to be able to continue to fulfill our mission of providing the best services in fire protection, rescue, and fire prevention and education to the citizens of our borough.  Donations made will:

  • Assist the fire companies with operating costs
  • Help with maintenance of the firehouses
  • Assure all equipment and members ready to respond at all times

Your continued support is necessary and very much appreciated.
