    Post Max Age For A New Jersey Vol

    Is there any " Max Age Limit " for new members looking to become volunteer firefighters in the state of New Jersey . I know that most departments you must be " 18 years old " as a minimum age to join !.....

    The State Association will not accept anyone over 45 I believe. Of course, that does not mean they can't join a department and be active, they just won't be a member of the State Association.

    For your family when you die. I think the burial benefit is up to ~$7000. Other than that, none that I can recall. I know I have 2 guys in my company that were over the age when they joined.
