One of the reasons Randolph is such a great place to live is because we have so many residents who are willing to volunteer their time in various township organizations, including boards and committees that serve in an advisory capacity to the Town Council. These include:

  • The Board of Adjustment hears development applications that are outside of zoning regulations.
  • The Board of Health recommends measures to meet the health needs of the township.
  • The Economic Development Committee serves as a liaison between businesses and the departments of the township and the township council.
  • The Environmental and Landmark Committee lends oversight to the protection, development, and use of open space and natural resources within the township and the protection, enhancement and preservation of township sites and structures with historical, architectural, or cultural significance.
  • The Library Board of Trustees oversees library operations.
  • The Municipal Alliance Committee combats alcoholism and drug abuse in the community.
  • The Parks Committee acts advised on matters relating to the use and development of Parks and open space areas available within the township.
  • The Planning Board hears subdivision and site plan applications that are generally in accordance with the township’s land development regulations.
  • The Recreation Committee develops and recommends a year-round program of recreational activities for all township residents
  • The Traffic Advisory Committee works to identify and resolve traffic problems and issues within the township.

Residents interested in being considered for these committees can submit a Tap the Talent volunteer application form that can be found on the township’s website. 

Other volunteer organizations within Randolph include the Fire Department and the Rescue Squad.  Many residents don’t realize that the Randolph Township Fire Department is an all-volunteer organization. The department is served by over 125 volunteer firefighters who are provide 24-hour services from four fire stations strategically located throughout the township. Additionally, the department maintains a bureau of fire prevention which enforces New Jersey’s Uniform Fire Safety Code. The Randolph Fire Department is looking for new members. If you are interested, please visit your local fire station on any Monday night after 7:00 p.m. or contact the Fire Chief via the township website at http://www.randolphnj.org/government/fire_department.

The Randolph Rescue Squad is also an all-volunteer organization.  With a dedicated team of thirty highly-trained volunteers, the squad provides Randolph and surrounding communities with basic life support services Monday through Friday, from 7:00 p.m. through 6:00 a.m. and round-the-clock on weekends and holidays. The squad provides transport services to local hospitals and standby services at fire calls and various community events.
