The City of Red Bank Fire Department was organized in 1971. Prior to that fire service was provided by a private concern on a subscription basis. Funding for the department comes from city taxes and $1,074,905 was budgeted for fiscal year 2017.

The department responds not only to fires, but also provides rescue services, hazardous materials response, service calls and public education programs. During 2016, the RBFD responded to 874 alarms. Due to the actions of the department, an estimated $2,496,356 worth of property was saved in the city.

The RBFD operates out of 2 stations, which are manned 24 hours a day. The membership consists of members who work full-time as their career, members who receive compensation for working part-time shifts and are paid on call, and volunteer members who receive no compensation for services rendered.

The equipment currently consists of 4 engines, 1 hose/service truck, 1 rescue truck, and 2 staff vehicles. When an emergency occurs that will require more resources that the RBFD has, extra help will come from surrounding departments, which are in an agreement with one another to provide extra assistance. This is known as a mutual aid agreement and the RBFD is a member of the Tri-State Mutual Aid Association, which consists of more that 49 metro area departments.

The members of the RBFD are State Certified Fire Fighters. Included in the membership are Rescue Technicians, Hazardous Materials Technicians, Paramedics, and Emergency Medical Technicians. The members are continuously going through training in order to be efficient and abreast of the latest strategy and tactics. This is necessary in order to provide an effective, well-coordinated fire department with standard methods and procedures of operation.
