Your Asbury Park Fire Department is a full service professional organization. Our highly trained personnel provide a wide variety of services to meet the needs of our residents and visitors.

All Asbury Park's fire apparatus are staffed with skilled, cross-trained firefighter/emergency medical technicians who provide basic life support skills and fight fires.

We staff 1 Engine Company, 1 Truck Company, 2 Basic Life Support Ambulances, and a Duty Battalion Chief.
