Red Bank Fire Department proudly protects 12418 people living in an area of 6.5 square miles. We operate out of 2 stations that protect a primarily residential area. Our department is a public department whose members are on a combination of paid and volunteer status.

The City of Red Bank Fire Department was organized in 1971. Prior to that fire service was provided by a private concern on a subscription basis. Funding for the department comes from city taxes. The RBFD operates out of 2 stations, which are manned 24 hours a day. The membership consists of members who work full-time as their career, members who receive compensation for working part-time shifts, and volunteer members. All members are treated equal and all members carry pagers inorder to respond to alarms when needed. The equipment currently consists of 4 engines, 1 hose truck, 1 rescue truck, and 2 staff vehicles. The RBFD is also a member of the Tri-State Mutual Aid Association.
