Clinton Fire Department is located in the heart of downtown Clinton, Hunterdon
County, New Jersey. We proudly protect a population of over 2,000 covering
approximately 1.2 square miles. We run out of one station located on the
corner of New Street and Old Route 22.
The Clinton Fire Department handles all the fire department duties --
extinguishing building fires, resetting fire alarms, supplying water at
car accidents, and other miscellaneous jobs -- for the town of Clinton.
Besides covering Clinton, we also cover parts of our neighboring towns,
Franklin and Union Townships.Outside of our first due area, we respond
when requested to other parts of the county. We typically average around
190 calls per year, most of which are smells of smoke and alarm bells.
Along with responding to fire calls, we have monthly drills and meetings.
The Clinton Fire Department is always looking for new membership. If interested,
call (908) 735-8613, or better yet, stop by the station. We are always
around on Monday nights and Sunday mornings and will be happy to show
you around. If you'd like more information about becoming a member, fill
out our Information Request Form.

As you may be aware CFD is a nonprofit organization. Until recently however we were not a 501(c)3 organization with the IRS. Treasurer William Wintermute and our Accountant Brian Skelton worked diligently for over a year and CFD has finally attained 501(c)3 status. This allows us to receive matching funds from many of our donors that we had previously been unable to apply for. Our Annual Fund Drive was mailed out a few weeks ago and we want to bring this new development to your attention in case you were planning on giving and you employer offers matching gift programs.
While on the topic of our Fund Drive we want to apologize for the our arriving at the same time as the Clinton Rescue Squad. This was not intentional and was due to circumstances beyond our control. We are taking steps to avoid this in the future. As always we appreciate all of your support as we could not do our job without it. Thank you and stay safe!

We also approved our first two Juniors in the new age group, Jessica Dorf and Bailey Pyle. Jessica is a 2nd generation CFD member, her Father Walter Dorf is our current Deputy Chief.

Just after 8 pm Box 4504 Level 2 was dispatched for the Chimney Fire Responding on the box was Chief 45, Tower 45, Engine 45-1, Squad 91(Quakertown), Ladder 14(High Bridge), Pumper Tender 46(Annandale) and Clinton Rescue. PD arrived on scene and reported flames from the Chimney. Fire units were on scene in 7 minutes and quickly determined the fire was contained to the chimney. Members cleared the fire box and checked the chimney and found the fire had self extinguished. Important lesson is to check the work of your chimney sweep as this resident had just recently had their chimney cleaned. This was CFD's 8th call in the last three days. Stay safe!
