The Goshen Volunteer Fire Company is an all volunteer company consisting of 30-35 members operating from a single station located at 331 State Highway 47 North. They respond to requests for fire, rescue, and EMS assistance while maintaining a very active role in the community. Averaging over 50 calls each year, GVFC serves the 17-square-mile Fire District #4 of Middle Township and responds into the other 3 fire districts in Middle Township, Dennis Township and as far as Avalon. The Tender truck is called to cover some of our surrounding communities when needed.
Goshen is located in Cape May County, New Jersey, and is part of 64-square-mile Middle Township with 3 other fire companies and 2 rescue squads. State Highway Route 47 runs through the District for 6.5 miles, is one-of-three major highways to the busy southern shore area of our state, and gives us many MVC calls. They are primarily a small bedroom and farm community with two boat marinas.
