Union Township Fire Protection
Please Note: If you are experiencing a fire-related emergency, dial 911.
Union Township is covered by four different fire departments. When a 911 call is placed to report a fire within the Township, it will be routed to the Pattenburg, Clinton, High Bridge, or Quakertown Fire Company, depending upon the fire’s location. A map showing each company’s primary coverage area is here.
The Pattenburg Volunteer Fire Company (PVFC) is located on Rt 614 and is the first responder for a large portion of Union Township, in addition to areas within Bethlehem and Alexandria Townships. Pattenburg Fire Company relies upon volunteers to provide its services, and is always looking for new members. In addition to their other duties, they perform any automobile extrication required by the Pattenburg Rescue Squad.
