Fire Department

The Camden Fire Department serves the city of Camden and the surrounding area.

The motto, “to save life and property” states the essential purpose of the Camden Fire Department’s ever evolving mission. The department physically protects from danger the people of Camden by performing firefighting and lifesaving functions with a high degree of skill and professionalism, and it is to these persons that the department is ultimately responsible.

Often because there are no other public or private agencies available, the public relies upon the Fire Department for assistance and advice in the many routine and emergency situations which develop. We are called on regularly to respond to incidents where saving lives, aiding the injured, locating lost persons and other miscellaneous needs are the basic public services rendered by the Department.
