The Fire Commissioners have established a subcommittee made up of representatives from Chesterfield Hose Company, the Crosswicks Fire Company, and Commissioners from both district 1 and 2. Former Chesterfield Fire Chief Brian Wilson pointed to a reduction in the number of volunteers as the reason for the interest in consolidation.

Now, the Township Committee will hold a special public hearing on December 27th at 6:30pm regarding the consolidation of the two fire districts. WBNC News will be there.
