Welcome to the official website for the Plumsted Township Fire District. This website has been developed in order to satisy the requirements of enacted law A3908 requiring all Fire Districts and other governing agencies to become more transparent to the general public by providing specific information pertaining to our fire district
Basically a fire district is governed by a Board of Commissioners who are elected by the legal voters within the district at an annual election on the third Saturday in February. The Board submits an annual budget to the voters for approval at this same election. A fire tax is struck and collected by the municipality. The funds are remitted to the district four times during the year.
The Board of Fire Commissioners is responsible for fire prevention and suppression within its territory. Most fire districts contract with the local volunteer fire companies for the use of their building and personnel in the providing of fire services.
