BOOK DONATIONS NEEDED
Do you have books that you are looking to get rid of? Don't throw them out! The Emerson Fire Department has partnered with New Legacy Books to either give those books a new home or have them recycled. We have placed a book deposit bin in front of the firehouse directly across from Hillman Field. Your donation of used books will benefit their new owners and the Emerson Fire Department as well.
The bin is open 24 hours a day and 7 days a week on the south side of the firehouse.

Anyone wishing to obtain a NJ State Exempt Fireman flag for placement at the gravesite of a deceased Emerson Exempt Firefighter can stop by the firehouse on any Monday night after 7:30pm or by calling 201-261-2242 and leaving a message. We have flags in stock that we will gladly supply.
