Volunteer Opportunities

Strong communities are created with the assistance of committed volunteers.  In Ewing, many opportunities are available for talented and dedicated residents to contribute to their community.  Residents can volunteer for an appointment to a Community Board, Committee or Commission; assist with a number of our emergency services; clean up a park or trail; teach a computer class, or call a senior bingo game.  The possibilities are limitless.  

Volunteering is also a great way make new friends in town, as well as to receive those intangible rewards that come from giving back to your community.  This page lists some of our typical volunteer opportunities.  If you have a talent or skill and would like to serve, please fill out our volunteer application.  Appointments to the Township’s Boards, Committees, and Commissions are limited by statute and may not always have open positions, but there may other way to use your talents.   Please file a volunteer application with Township Administration to be considered for openings.  You can also contact Township Administration at (609) 883-2900 x7605 if you have any questions.

Boards, Committees, & Commissions

There are over a dozen boards, commissions and committees in Ewing Township. Board members are volunteers and appointed by the Mayor. Residents interested in volunteering their time and experience to one of these boards can submit an application. For more information about the role and responsibilities of each appointed board please check the Township Boards, Committees and Commissions webpage with a link to each board.  Call the Mayor’s Confidential Secretary at (609) 883-2900 x7647 for additional information about securing an appointment.

Ewing Police

Neighborhood Watch is one of the oldest and best-known crime prevention concepts in North America. It empowers citizens to become active in community crime prevention efforts through participation in Neighborhood Watch groups,  well organized groups of concerned citizens which assist the police by effectively becoming the eyes and ears of the community. For additional information see the Ewing Police Department Neighborhood Watch page with contact information.

Ewing Volunteer Fire Houses

Ewing has three volunteer fire companies that provide fire protection around the clock, 365 days-a-year, the Prospect Heights Fire Co., the Pennington Road Fire Co. and First Aid Squad and the West Trenton Fire Co. 

Beginning in January 2018, the Pennington Road Fire Co. and First Aid Squad will be staffed 24/7 by career firefighters and EMS staff.  However, the Prospect Heights Fire Co.and West Trenton Fire Co.  are still actively recruiting for new  volunteer members!  All training is provided free of charge. Individuals who are interested in joining should visit http://www.joinewingfire.com for further information. Some people join to be a firefighter and others join to be a fire police officer or a member who wants to contribute to the operation of the firehouse.

Membership is open to anyone age 16 and above who is an Ewing Township resident and a U.S. citizen. A member must be over the age of 18 to be considered a full firefighter. Below the age of 18, a member is part of our junior firefighter program, which permits the member to participate in almost every aspect of training, and a semi-limited role in actual incidents. Consider being of service to your community!
