MADISON, NJ - Madison’s fire department is nearly two dozen volunteers strong after two new members took the Oath of Office at a July 10 Mayor and Council meeting. 

Mayor Conley said “it was an honor” to swear in the department’s new firefighters, Sean Donnelly and Matt Wexler, who, with their families in tow, promised to “faithfully, impartially and justly perform” their duties.

“At a time when it is more and more difficult to recruit volunteers in all areas, it is great to see our volunteer fire companies holding steady,” Conley said in an email. “Volunteers not only give their time on active calls but also go through nearly 200 hours training, showing true dedication to the residents of Madison.”

With these two newly-sworn-in volunteers, the Madison Fire Department now has 12 structural fire volunteers and an overall total of 23 volunteers supporting career firefighters, but the department hopes to get even larger, according to Conley.

“We can always use more volunteer firefighters,” he said.

The Madison Fire Department was established in 1881 and utilizes both career and volunteer fire personnel.
