We are located in central Monmouth County, New Jersey between the picturesque Navesink and Shrewsbury Rivers. Our members gladly give many hours of their time every year, responding to emergencies, undergoing training and maintaining equipment, all at no cost to Fair Haven residents.

We also operate New Jersey’s largest Firemen’s Fair each year, bringing joy to kids of all ages while raising funds for our ongoing activities.
