Oceanic Hook and Ladder Fire Co. No. 1
The Oceanic Hook and Ladder Fire Co. No. 1 was formed on May 22, 1879, by a small group of citizens who were interested in the welfare and growth of the community. They met in a store on the corner of Washington and Hunt Streets in the village of Oceanic, now part of the borough of Rumson. Oceanic Hook and Ladder was one of the first fire companies in this area. Our mission is to extinguish fire, protect life and property, and cooperate with the Borough of Rumson in civic improvements.
