At the annual Woolwich Fire Company Christmas Party, Santa and Mrs. Claus visited with the children and grand-children of the members of the Woolwich Fire Company. The annual party is to thank the families of the volunteers for their support. Being a volunteer fireman or woman means many hours of sleepless nights protecting our communities, and time away from our families and loved ones. After a dinner for the volunteers and our families, Santa & Mrs. Claus stopped by to thank the families and with gifts for the children.
The members of the Woolwich Fire Company thank our friends and neighbors in the Borough of Swedesboro and Township of Woolwich for their continuing support and wish you all a Merry Christmas, a Happy New Year, and Happy Holidays.

At the June business meeting, the fire company congratulated three new graduates of Firefighter I course at the Gloucester County Fire Academy. They are Drew Aaron, Matt Aaron and John Nastasi.
Firefighter I is the first required training for a volunteer. This course is a 152 hour training course that begins the firefighting training techniques. During this period, the member can respond to fires and drills but is considered a “probationary” firefighter and can only enter fires at certain phases and with senior members of the fire company.
The Company is proud to add these members to the active protection of our communities. Well done!
At the June 16th business meeting, the Woolwich Fire Company welcomed four new members. The new firefighter is Matthew Hesser. The new juniors are Hunter Cramer, Jonathan Roll and Nathan Villanueua.
