12/18/2013: Mutual Aid second alarm fire on Clark Avenue in Ocean Grove

The Unexcelled Fire Company was founded in 1888, and is located in Neptune Township, Monmouth County, New Jersey.

It is the busiest of the four fire companies within the Neptune Fire Department, and responds mutual aid to many of our surrounding towns including the City of Asbury Park, Ocean Grove, Bradley Beach, Avon, Neptune City, Wall Township, Allenhurst, Tinton Falls, Long Branch, West Long Branch, Ocean Township and other local towns.

On average we respond to over 600+ fire and emergency calls per year.

Our fire company has a roster of 25 members. The firehouse (response, fire apparatus and equipment) is commanded by the Captain and two Lieutenants. The administrative section of the fire company is controlled by a President, Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary. Trustees are responsible for the building, grounds and fire company property.

We operate two rigs – a 2006 Pierce Engine and a 960008_10201868152652664_715071625_n2009 Crimson Tower Ladder. Both rigs are equipped with essential firefighting tools and enhanced rescue tools, such as Champion extrications tools, high angle rope and rigging, RIT down man air supply kit, confined space rescue equipment, gas meters, thermal imaging cameras, cribbing, power saws, and much more.

The Unexcelled Fire Company is a proud support of the community, community events and related functions. We participate in Neptune Day, Community Day at Jersey Shore University Medical Center, Community Day at Home Depot, the FF Robert J. Foti Golf Tournament, and many more.

Although the company does receive some funding from the fire district, we rely heavily on the generous donations from our residents and supporters.

The Unexcelled Fire Company takes great pride in our mission to respond to emergencies and assist our residents at their time of need.  We also respect our relationships with our fellow emergency responders – the other township fire companies, the neighboring fire companies, our friends in EMS, OEM, Police and the other support agencies.
