A Message to the residents of Morristown


The members of Morristown Professional Firefighters (FMBA Local#43) strive to make each experience that a community member has with us a pleasant one as possible. Usually, it is at some of the most difficult times in your lives that you encounter us.  Other times, it is hopefully on a much less stressful occasion. 


Each of us hopes that you value our services, as much as we value your support of us.  Locals #43 & 243 understand that since September 11, 2001, the economy has not been on as solid of footing as it was prior to that date. 


We understand that your tax dollars need to be spent in a way that is not wasteful. On average, Morristown homeowners pay around $1.40 a day for our services including salaries & benefits. If you own a smart phone, you pay $3.40 on average a day for it.


We need for you to understand that the events of 9/11 also brought on many changes for us and the Fire Service as a whole. Increased threats have resulted in greater demands on us as your first line of defense. Fire prevention, education, emergency medical service, and advanced technical training have become increasingly more important in our lives as your First Responders. We are asked to respond not only to the usual community emergencies, but now to natural disasters and potential  acts of terrorism as well.


Let us assure you, we have maintained a strong grasp of the new expectations that are upon us, and strive to give the residents of the Town of Morristown the best possible and affordable service available.


We at FMBA Local #43 believe its an honor and a privilege to serve the residents of the Town of Morristown. We are here to help 24 hours a day/7 days a week/ 365 days a year.


Thank you for your continued support.
