Randolph Engine Co. #5 has completed an expansion and update of the current firehouse to better serve Randolph Township’s residents and businesses. While the expansion is predominantly complete, fundraising for the project is an ongoing effort to meet the financing commitments as well as to complete some additional needs like a full facility generator for resident safe-haven in the event of an emergency, and flooring and bathroom fixtures on the 2nd floor. See the bottom of this page for ways to contribute.
The expansion of the firehouse provides more space for training and operations; enlarges apparatus bays to support the size of current-day fire engines; and is plumbed for a full facility backup power generation (when funding becomes available) to assist as an additional emergency warming and charging station in town. Additionally, updates to the lavatories brought them up to ADA specifications. And finally overall improvements to the property include new landscaping, a flagpole, and hosting of an updated and better positioned Shongum School sign.
As the firehouse and property are wholly owned maintained by the Randolph Engine Co. #5 Association, this expansion is being made possible ONLY because of the past and ongoing generous support of YOU, our residents, businesses and other fire service supporters.
Other Substantial Sponsorship Opportunities

Part of the expansion’s funding plan is the Patrons’ Memoral Wall. This black granite memorial wall is constucted and growing inside the firehouse meeting room to acknowledge, in a beautiful and everlasting way, our residents and businesses directly supporting this project. A 4×8 or 8×8 granite wall tile can be purchased for you, your family, or someone else, to commemorate a special occasion or to honor or remember a special loved one.
Businesses can purchase a tile to support the firehouse, and show all residents entering the main meeting room for events, various public elections, meetings, etc. that YOUR BUSINESS is an active supporter of the community you serve. The 12×12 Battalion level tile can even include your business’s custom logo, along with your company name and slogan, or other engraving.
This one-time tile purchase will give you a permanent place of memorial/acknowledgment at the firehouse’s active meeting room.
