CLOSTER, N.J. -- The Borough of Closter's two ambulance corps and fire departments are seeking volunteers to help make a difference in the community.
Since its establishment in 1893, the Knickerbocker Hook & Ladder Company has been staffed totally by volunteers who donate their time on an as-needed basis, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, responding to 274 calls last year.
The safety response to the needs of local residents and businesses is complemented by the medical emergency response and rescue operations provided by the men and women of the Closter Volunteer Ambulance and Rescue Corps.
The Closter Volunteer Ambulance and Rescue Corps is the only department in Bergen County -- and one of the few in the state -- that provides both ambulance and heavy rescue services.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer for either organization, information can be found on both at the borough’s website . If you are interested in providing support, but not able to make the full volunteer commitment, then perhaps you will consider supporting these emergency services during their fundraising drives throughout the year.
