Long Description:
Cologne Volunteer Fire Company (CVFC) is located in the Township of Hamilton (Atlantic County) New Jersey. This fire company is composed by approximately 26 active members (20 Firefighters, 1 Engineer, 3 Lieutenants, 1 Captain, 1 Assistant Chief and 1 Fire Chief) which dedicate their own time and sometimes resources to save lives and protect the property of those in need. As a 100% volunteer fire company the CVFC firefighters are part of the 823,350 volunteer (2005 USFA statistics data) across the nation that perform fire suppression duties and provide emergency services to local communities.

The Cologne Vol. Fire Department was started in the December of 1958. The first meeting was held in Herman Leipe Jr.'s cellar. We became incorporated in 1960 and shortly thereafter, our first firefighters began construction of our Firehouse. The land upon which the station sits was donated by the Leipe family and Harry Schaab. Before the building was completed, the men who dreamed and worked hard for this company were already having drills with the Laureldale Vol. Fire Co. At that time, the Chief of Laureldale was Charlie Skinner and Asst. Chief was Bob Skinner. Source: (visit link)
