This company was organized in February, 1872 and is the department's oldest company. A fire in April 1881 destroyed the fire house. The only equipment saved from the fire belonged to the Friendship Hook and Ladder Company No. 1.


The Friendship Hook & Ladder Company also belongs to various organizations. We are members of the North Jersey Firemen’s Association and the New Jersey/New York Firemen’s Association. The company also belongs to the South Bergen Mutual Aid Association, Zone Two, along with the rest of the companies in the department. We are also proud to be the only company in the department not to be reorganized since its inception.
