Voorhees Fire District No. 3 has been consolidated from an independent body to a fire department operating under the direction and management of Voorhees Township. The consolidation was approved by both the Voorhees Township Committee and the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs Local Finance Board after the Board of Fire Commissioners received a vote of “No Confidence” from the Voorhees Fire District’s own union and an external fire expert cited numerous problems within the Department.

Voorhees Police Chief Louis Bordi will oversee the district’s transition until a traditional fire chief is hired to oversee the Voorhees Fire Department. Budget savings are anticipated within the first year of the transition.

Voorhees Township is confident this consolidation will result in meeting and exceeding the safety needs of our residents, first responders and business owners.
