Be Part of the Bigger Story

The Cheswold Volunteer Fire Company is a full-service fire department. We respond to all calls involving fires, medical emergencies, hazardous materials, and other emergency events that serve an approximately 26 square mile area with a population of some 14,000 within and outside the Town of Cheswold in mutual aid response areas.

Fire and Rescue Operations are staffed entirely by volunteers, with EMS being provided by full and part-time paid Fire Company personnel 24/7.

By becoming a volunteer member of the Cheswold Volunteer Fire Company, you’re joining a mission-driven organization that works with its members to achieve more in all aspects of life.

Three ways to find your place with us:
