Another year at the Wildwood Firemen's Convention has come to a close. A wonderful weekend of seeing the latest vendors have to offer with apparatus & gear as well as bonding with our second family. A huge thank you to our brothers from Maryland, the Chestertown Volunteer Fire Company for volunteering their time & sleeping in our quarters ensuring we had fire protection for our response area!!! They were kept busy with a number of calls for service and we greatly appreciate the help from "Station 6". ... See MoreSee Less
Snorkel 809, a 1968 Seagrave/Pierce/Pitman 75’ was originally purchased by Union City, NJ this rig was rehabbed by Hahn in 1985. It served us for 38 years until being replaced in 2010 with a Seagrave 75’ rear mount quint. While new apparatus typically receive a “wet-down” to welcome them into the department, we instead held a de-commissioning ceremony in honor of this rig’s faithful service for so many years. Many members will remember the distinct sound of the motor that could be heard blocks away.youtube.com ... See MoreSee Less
Loved that truck. Put out a lot of fire during her service.
It's sitting in a garage in NY owned by a guy named Andy Leider. He "rescues" old apparatus from the graves and tries to get them restored or over to someone that will. I have seen pictures and video of this place including a shot of 809.
809 was my favorite.....aside from the Ward LaFrance....
Great truck! Was critical in fighting fires in South River when wires were in the way.
East Brunswick's Snorkle and South River's Yellowbird were firefighting icons of the time.
Sixteen years ago we lost our innocence. We lost many, many good people. Today and everyday continue to think about those that lost a loved one that day or continue to be effected by sickness from the rescue efforts. Never forget. ... See MoreSee Less

On September 3‚ 2004‚ City of New Brunswick Fire Department Deputy Chief James D’heron made the ultimate sacrifice responding to a call‚ by giving his life to save the residents that were sleeping inside. When Jimmy arrived at the scene‚ before his platoon‚ he knew he had to warn the 15 people living in the home to flee. He couldn’t wait‚ and he didn’t. He knew that the propane tanks in this dwelling posed a severe threat to all who were inside. The residents of this home were all able to make it out alive thanks to the efforts of this firefighter. Jimmy didn’t make it out. He gave his life so that others could live‚ and that is what Jimmy was all about. #neverforget ... See MoreSee Less

Anyone who has known me more than five minutes knows that I am seldom at a loss for words, but I am still having difficulty trying to express the gratitude and overwhelming feelings my family and I have after everything that everyone has done over the past few days. The efforts of the Officers and Members of the EBIFC were beyond anything I expected, and there is no way to thank all of you enough for everything. The visits, messages, and calls were numerous. I didn't think that many people had my number lol! The outpouring of support is evident even here on Facebook, on my page, this page, and the comments people made to all those that chose to post or share something on their personal pages. The work behind the scenes to make everything go smoothly was a huge task and you guys more than rose to the occasion. I was deeply moved to see how many members and in many cases, your families too, took the time to attend the services and funeral. The members of other departments that gave of their time to help us with station coverage, flag detail, and everything else. I have never been prouder to be a member of the East Brunswick Independent Fire Company. The display of brotherhood over the last few days showed the world exactly why my father chose to give 54 years of his life to this organization with equal pride. He was glad to let being a member of the Fire Co. play a big part in defining his life, and he would be grateful to know that so many chose to remeber him in such a positive way. They say life is short, but really life is long. Long in possibilities, long in potential, long in the the impact you can have on people after you are gone. Like the old proverb says, what a person does for himself dies with him, what a person does for others can last forever. OK I'm rambling now so I will get off the soap box and just conclude by saying "Thanks".
Stay safe out there.
