OVER 1500 FIRE GALLERIES, and 50,000 IMAGES !! The following galleries feature the fire photography of Chris and Bill Tompkins. The photos mainly cover jobs in the Northern New Jersey and Metro New York City area.
We would like to thank all the members of the Fire Departments (and from time to time Police Officers) who have extended us courtesies on the fireground to make these photos possible.
All of the galleries are listed by date. If you would rather view by municipality, just use the search above by typing in the name of the town.
While this site is mainly for information purposes, all of the photos are available for sale. Click on the shopping cart for information on photo sizes and gifts available and prices. If you are a member of the Department shown in the photo and want to purchase a copy, please contact Bill at for a discounted price.
NOTE: Many of the older images are very low resolution scans of prints. If you would like a print of one of these, please contact Bill and prints will be made from the original negatives which will produce the best possible quality. The prices are the same.
Thanks, and be safe.
