Support the Basking Ridge Volunteer Fire Department

Every year for the past 100 years, the Basking Ridge Fire Department has set up a Christmas Tree on the Basking Ridge town green on the Saturday following Thanksgiving (source: Mr. Local History Project).  


Setting up the tree, of course, is in addition to the important main service that the Fire Department provides to the Bernards Township community.

Here are two ways to support our 100% volunteer Basking Ridge Fire Company No. 1.
