History

By Richard Cheu – East Franklin Firefighter

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.
