Before the organization of the Westville Fire Department in 1987, the Borough of Westville was protected by two separate fire companies, the Union and Independent Fire Companies. Faced with a tight budget and a dwindling volunteer force, the companies merged into Westville Fire Department in October of 1987.
Two years later in 1989, the Westville Fire District was established due to the increased cost of maintaining the equipment and insurance. With this support, the Westville Fire Department has proudly served the community to the highest standard possible.
The mission of the Westville Fire Department is to protect lives, property and the environment, improving the quality of life and safety of the community.
"I volunteer to provide the community with protection, trust and help in emergencies."Member William H. Beckett IV
