About Decou Fire

Picture of the FirehouseDeCou Hose Company is a combination fire department located in Hamilton Township, Mercer County, New Jersey. Our station is located on the south end of the towship about 5 mintues outside of the state capitol, Trenton. Our first due area is densely populated and highly traveled with a mix of residential and commercial structures. The structures we respond to in our area are mostly older construction with many homes being historical. We also have three major highways running threw our district which are I-295, I-195, and I-29. We operate with two engines, one special service, one utility, and one chief's vehicle. Beside providing fire protection for the Decou section of Hamilton, we also provide emergency medical care to the residents. In May 2005, the fire company implemented overnight duty crews to help response time to our residents. The duty crew sleeps at the firehouse in a bunkroom and answer calls between the hours of 10 p.m. and 7 a.m. seven days a week.
