Welcome to the Official Website for the Iselin Volunteer Fire Company #1

The Iselin Volunteer Fire Company #1 is one of nine fire companies protecting Woodbridge Township, which is New Jersey's fifth largest municipality encompassing 27 square miles and a population of 105,000 people. Our district, covering approximately six square miles, is quite diverse and includes high rise office and hotel buildings (APA, Marriott Renaissance, Days Inn), the Northeast Corridor's MetroPark train station, commercial occupancies and shopping centers, highways (Garden State Parkway, US Route 1, US Route 9), a chemical research and development facility (BASF), and residential units including apartment buildings, senior citizen complexes, and single and multi-family homes.

The Iselin Volunteer Fire Company #1 is all volunteer. We respond from two fire stations, and our members provide fire fighting and rescue services to the residents, workers, and visitors of the Iselin and Menlo Park Terrace sections of Woodbridge Township 24 hours a day, seven days per week. We have a proud 96 year tradition of dedicated community service dating back to our founding by concerned citizens in 1922.

Please take a tour of our website to learn more about your fire company and your firefighters, and get updated on our latest activities and the community events being sponsored by the fire company.

Visit us again soon to get the latest news and updates on our activities and, as always, stop by and visit us at the firehouse.
