Recently the Ocean Beach Fire Company has seen a spike in calls for service and a drop in applications for responders. Currently this has effected our ability to answer alarms as quickly as we would like to.  Many of our responders are coming from the mainland since being displaced from their homes after the storm.  We have developed a plan with our surrounding fire companies in order to protect our community effectively.  Since 1951 Ocean Beach Fire Company has been a keystone to it's community and a group that our community has come to appreciate and rely on when they have an emergency.  In order to do that we rely on the community to get involved and then take the needed steps to become a responder and aid us in this mission. WE NEED YOU NOW MORE THAN EVER!   Without more members of the community stepping up this keystone we have all come to know and depend on may not be there too much longer. Please consider applying now by going to the apply now tab on the left of the website or stop by the station on a Tuesday night at 7pm. We have Full Time and Part-Time/Seasonal Positions AVAILABLE!!


Ocean Beach Fire is looking for new members to become part of our team and join over 60 years of tradition serving the beach areas of Toms River including Ortley Beach, Monterey Shores, Ocean Beaches 1, 2, 3. Chadwick, and Silver Beach.  OBFC also provides mutual aid to the other shore communities on the barrier island. If you are a full time resident of any of these areas, Toms River Fire Department offers many financial incentives as a volunteer. No experience is needed and all training is free. 

Attention career and volunteer firefighters with second homes at the beach. Consider lending your talents as a seasonal firefighter at OBFC. With the increase in population during the tourist season, we can use extra help with fire suppression, water rescues, dive calls, and other water related incidents. Your participation is not limited to just the summer months and we encourage year round involvement.

If interested, please visit the station on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of each month at 7 pm or anytime the station doors are open. Any member will gladly talk to you about joining the OBFC family. You can also leave a message at 732-793-7601. We hope to hear from you soon!

Stop by the firehouse and see any member
