$4.158 million Resilient Communities Award Grant Announcement

Kingwood Township has been awarded $4.158 million dollars to build an Emergency Services building by the State of NJ's Resilient Communities Grant program.

The Township of Kingwood in collaboration with the Kingwood Township Vol. Fire Company No. 1 and the Kingwood First Aid and Rescue Squad will reconstruct an emergency services building on the property of the fire company's station 2 located at 621 County Road 519. The existing 30' wide by 50' deep 2 bay building will be replaced with a 68' wide by 90' deep 4 bay building. Features include a 40,000-gallon rainwater recapture system for use in fighting fires in the township, a temporary emergency evacuation location, and 4 apparatus bays that will house equipment from both our fire and EMS providers. This new building will allow for a reduction in response times for our residents. This strategic choice to have Fire and EMS Equipment placed in both the Northern and Southern part of the townships will benefit our entire community for many years to come.

More information will be presented at regular intervals at the township committee meetings as the project develops. Our immediate next steps are to work with the Resilient Communities team on the grant award agreement and acceptance.  Once accepted, the township has 3 years to complete the building.  Our intent is to complete the project by the end of 2025 barring any unforeseen delays.

Collaboration and partnership community wide is bringing great things to Kingwood. Have a passion for improving our community?  Fill out the Citizen Leadership Volunteer form on our website and volunteer for one of our many committees.

Residents of Kingwood Township, please be aware of the following safety precautions during power outages:

  • Do not approach or attempt to handle downed trees or wires, as they may be energized.
  • If you encounter a downed powerline, immediately dial 911 to report the hazard.
