Volunteer Firefighter Stipend Program


Evesham Township Fire District No.1 Volunteer Firefighter Stipend Program Application

Evesham Fire-Rescue is a combination fire and EMS agency recruiting NJ-certified firefighters to join our organization and participate in our Volunteer Firefighter Stipend Program.

Evesham Fire-Rescue provides coverage to a diverse residential and light commercial area covering 30+ square miles area protecting 50,000 residents. Service is provided with a fleet of modern apparatus responding from one of our three well-equipped stations. Evesham Fire-Rescue regularly responds on mutual aid assignments in Burlington and Camden counties and is also a participating agency with the Burlington County Technical Rescue Task Force.

The Volunteer Firefighter Stipend Program provides incentives for volunteer members staffing in-house fire crews during weeknight and weekend hours and when participating in other activities, such as training and public relations events. Volunteer members can earn between $100 and $800 per month, with the stipend distributed monthly via direct deposit. Volunteer participation is permitted to fluctuate based upon member availability, and incentive amounts will vary month to month based on a member’s participation level.
