The City of Bayonne Fire Department protects a city of approximately 70,000 residents
in an area of about 3 square miles. Another 2.5 square miles is occupied by heavy
industry and the Peninsula at Bayonne Harbor. This area is made up of high density
housing, a dry dock, a cruise port and other commercial facilities.
The Bayonne Fire Department has 161 members as of September 28, 2011. A four group system
is employed and the members work a 24 hours on/72 hours off schedule (42 hour work week).
Five (5) engine companies, three(3) ladder companies, one (1) Rescue Company, and one (1)
Battalion Chief are strategically spread among 5 fire stations for suppression operations.
In addition to fire suppression the department is also responsible for fire prevention and
education, origin and cause investigations, hazardous materials response, and all technical
rescue situations. In an effort to augment the municipal emergency medical service, all Engine
and Ladder Companies and Rescue Company 1 are CFR-D (Certified First
Responder-Defibrillator) companies and respond as CFR-D companies. Beginning with the
1999 probationary class, all future Bayonne Firefighters will be EMT certified.
