Camden Fire Department, organized in 1869, was the first career department in New Jersey and is among the oldest departments in the United States. Though rich with history, Camden Fire has always been on the forefront of fire innovation. Back in 1916, the department was the very first in the nation to own a fleet of fully-motorized fire apparatus in a day in age when most large cities were still operating on horseback.
Understanding the Dangers of the Job
When flames smolder and rise – as black smoke fills the blue sky; a noble few with courage and valor run toward the chaos. These heroes who we call firefighters pledge to take care of families in their community in the face of destruction. Firefighting is undoubtedly one of the most honorable professions, yet also one of the most inherently dangerous. Risks of burns, smoke inhalation, and building collapse are very real dangers dealt with on a daily basis. However, air pollution remains a serious threat to the lives of firefighters nationwide. Throughout the course of duty, firefighters have an increased likelihood of asbestos exposure, which can result in serious illness – including mesothelioma, a severe form of cancer.
