About the Association
The Madison FMBA provides support to many local charitable, educational, and youth organizations. Recent contributions include "Walk With A Veteran", Where the Angels Play Sandy Playground Project and Kalaediscope of Hope Foundation. The Madison F.M.B.A. also provides a scholaship to two graduating Madison High School students every year.

Madison Fire Department has also utilized the state F.M.B.A. sponsored program called Fire Is. This is a five part video series that was developed by Dr. Frank Field along with his son Storm and daughter Allison which helps students understand the real danger of fires and proper ways to survive a catastrophic house fire. This program is taught at our schools every October during fire prevention. 

The State Firemen's Mutual Benevolent Association

The state organization was first organized and established on December 11, 1897, at the 1st FMBA annual convention which was held in Jersey City, New Jersey. At that seemingly uneventful gathering, whereupon only 6 original member locals - Jersey City, Paterson, Hoboken, Newark, Trenton and Camden, united to incorporate under the banner of the FMBA. Thus birth was given to a new era in the history of the career fire service in New Jersey.
