The East Franklin Township Volunteer Fire Department officially began operations on July 29, 1929, but it had its beginnings much earlier in the minds of a group of men determined to provide better fire protection for the West New Brunswick area of New Jersey. The department began with 12 members; men like Joseph Godrey and Louis Katko Sr. All of the original 12 members are gone now but they are not forgotten for what they did for their neighbors and community.
