The Oceanville Volunteer Fire Company No.1 was established December 12, 1924 by a group of local farmers and shell-fisherman concerned about the lack of fire protection available for their village.

It was the first fire company in Galloway Township and is now one of five in the Township.

Present membership consists of 35 men and women who volunteer their time to serve and protect our community as well trained firefighters.

Oceanville VFC has primary fire protection responsibility for about 15 square miles in the northeastern portion of Galloway Township and includes Smithville, Oceanville, and Leeds Point.
