Become A Volunteer
The heart of your Cinnaminson Fire District is its volunteers!!! Without the volunteer firefighters, we couldn't effectively fight fires in Cinnaminson. We couldn't respond to medical emergencies. We couldn't help at traffic accidents, and Santa would have to walk from house to house on Christmas Eve.
Prior to completing this form, be advised that if you are applying for membership as anything other than a Special Member, you must live in Cinnaminson or in a town that is contiguous to Cinnaminson. Even if you live in a contiguous municipality, you still need to live within a reasonable response distance to one of our two stations. If you must pass another fire station to respond to one of ours we encourage you to consider joining that department.
