Haddon Fire Company Co. No.1 proudly remains the
second oldest volunteer fire company in continuous existence in
the United States.
Major milestones in our history are:
1764 - On March 8, 26 men
- being among the chief owners property and heads of families
in the village - met in the Friends Meeting House (then located
on what is now Haddon Avenue) to form the Friendship Fire
Company of Haddonfield. Each member was required to furnish
two leathern fire buckets; the company supplied six ladders
and three fire hooks. (The names of some of the founding members
will be known to current residents, as street names in Haddonfield:
Redman, Hinchman, Gill. Numerous current residents can trace
their ancestry through the founding members of the Fire Company.)
1811 - Reorganization and
name change, to Fire Company of Haddonfield.
1857 - Reorganization and
name change to Haddonfield Fire Department.
1887 - Reorganization and
name change to Haddon Fire Company No.1.
The Company currently has a complement of 52 members. In addition,
we have 10 junior members, in our Explorer program, established
in 2001. Interested in learning more? For information and
