It comes with a heavy heart that we regret to inform you the passing of Gerry MacPherson. Gerry MacPherson was a life member of our sister station Tinton Falls Fire Company #1 in which he served as a Chief, President, Firefighter and Commissioner during his tenure. He exemplified every trait that you look for in a man, in which not only made a model citizen for our town but also a model firefighter to look up too. He was brave, he was courageous, and most importantly he was caring to all those around him. Gerry was a sight for sore eyes, and his presence alone lit up the room whenever he walked in. Today we will be brave like you Gerry, and not by mourning you but by celebrating your life and everything you gave to this town, these fire companies and most importantly everyone that had the pleasure, yet alone honor of meeting you. Thank you Gerry for your many years of service and friendship. Rest easy brother, we will take it from here.

During this tough time we ask you to give the MacPerson family and Tinton Falls Fire Company #1 your thoughts and prayers, and we will advise you of arrangements as soon as we are aware of them.

"Firemen never die, they just burn forever in the hearts of the people whose lives they saved."

This evening, at 4:08 PM, Wayside Fire Company was dispatched to mile marker 105.0 northbound of the local lanes on the Garden State Parkway for a 3 car motor vehicle accident. Rescue 2-85 followed by Engine 2-75 quickly arrived on the scene and confirmed one patient entrapped in an SUV which was pinned up on the guardrail. After the vehicle was stabilized, power secured, and a 360 of the scene was complete; crews decided that the best way to extricate the patient was through the back hatch/truck of the vehicle. Crews used the Jaws of Life, spreaders and cutters, to force the back hatch/trunk to gain access to the vehicle and patient. Once the patient was collared and C-spine was stabilized, crews were able to remove the back seats and gain full access to the driver seat. By clearing the back of the SUV of its back hatch/trunk and rear seats the crew was able to efficiently and safely remove the patient within 10 minutes and transfer them over to Tinton Falls EMS for care and transport to the local hospital. Great job by all agencies involved today especially TInton Falls EMS, Tinton Falls PD and the New Jersey State Police.
