District 36 RIT (Comprised of Rapid Intervention Team Members from Tinton Falls Fire Company No. 1 and Wayside Fire Company No. 2) are en route with Engine 1-78 and Rescue 2-85 to Sunset Ave in Ocean Twp. (Wanamassa Fire Company primary) for a general alarm working commercial structure fire.
Yesterday morning, Wayside Fire Company along with Pinebrook Community Hose and Tinton Falls EMS was dispatched to Park Road for a reported victim crushed. Chief 3-66 quickly called into service and arrived on location finding one victim alert and conscious pinned underneath 6 slabs of granite (16,000-20,000lbs) inside a shipping container. Chief 3-66 then called Tinton Falls Fire Company No. 1 requesting rescue/manpower to the scene and requested additional units from Asbury Park Fire Department for their technical rescue team. Crews from Rescue 2-85, Rescue 1-86, Engine 1-80, and District 83 worked together in a coordinated effort to secure the load both inside and outside the container with Paratech Fire & Rescue Equipment. After 4 hours of stabilization and adjusting loads to reach the victim, crews were able to safely extricate the victim outside the side of the container who was then handed over to medical care and transported to Jersey Shore University Medical Center.
Chief 36-3-66 had command of the incident.
Job well done by all agencies involved!
We would like to give a huge shoutout to Tinton Falls EMS, MAB-2, MD-1, MONOC Paramedics, Tinton Falls Borough Police Department Tinton Falls Office of Emergency Management and Little Silver Fire Company for the cover assignment!

Yesterday evening, District 36 RIT (Comprised of Rapid Intervention Team Members from Tinton Falls Fire Company No. 1 and Wayside Fire Company No. 2) were dispatched to Emery Ave in Neptune Twp. for a 2nd Alarm working residential (apartment complex) structure fire. Chiefs 1-66, 1-67, 2-66 along with Engine 1-76 and Rescue 2-85 responded to the call totaling 14 RIT members. Chief 1-67 assumed RIT Command and split up crews into 2 teams being able to monitor a full 360 of the structure on both the A and C sides.
