Home Members News History Apparatus How to Join Fire Safety

Chief Shaun Dlabik and President Kris Palmer welcome you to
Lawrence Road Fire Company's homepage on the Internet.

During 2009, Lawrence Road volunteers were dispatched
to 581 emergency assignments.

Lawrence Road Fire Company was organized May 1, 1914, by residents of the Eldridge Park section of Lawrence Township, Mercer County, N.J. The original name of the organization was Lawrence Volunteer Fire Association, but even then it was often referred to as Lawrence Road Fire Company since the first firehouse (a small, wood-frame building) was built on Lawrence Road. In 1953, the organization's name was officially changed to Lawrence Road Fire Company.

Today, the fire company operates out of a modern firehouse located on the same plot of land. Designated as Mercer County Fire Station 22, Lawrence Road Fire Company provides first-due fire protection to the homes and businesses in Lawrence Township Fire District 2, as well as mutual aid to the township's two other fire districts and also to neighboring municipalities, including the state capital, the City of Trenton. The fire company presently is staffed by over 30 active volunteers, with one career firefighter (Robert Santello), who works from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Lawrence Road Fire Company's current fleet of apparatus include: Telesquirt 22 (a 2003 KME 2,000 gallon-per-minute FireStix pumper equipped with a 75-foot ladder); Engine 22 (a 1998 KME 2,000 gallon-per-minute supply pumper); Rescue 22 (a 1996 KME heavy rescue/pumper equipped with a 1,500 gallon-per-minute pump and onboard cascade system); Car 22 (a 1999 Ford Expedition chief's car); Car 22-1 (a 2004 Ford Excursion deputy chief's vehicle); two boats (Marine 22 and Marine 22-1); and a fire safety trailer.
