The Westside Hose Company is the Red Bank Volunteer Fire Department's newest station, coming in at just over a century old. Incorporated in 1909, the station covers the entirety of the west side of Red Bank along with its sister station, the Union Hose Company.
The company's fire engine, Engine 96, comes with several features, including a 500-gallon tank, several ladders (among them an extension ladder) and several hoses, among other features.
Red Bank's fire department is an all-volunteer outfit, with six stations spread out in various neighborhoods throughout the borough. In all, the department boasts a volunteer base of about 150 firefighters, although it is always looking for new recruits. Volunteers can visit the borough's website for more information about how to apply to become a member of the Red Bank Volunteer Fire Department.
