As the Winter Storm approaches, please remember to keep your dryer vents and natural gas meters clear of snow. Accumulation of snow and ice can cause these devices to malfunction which could lead to damaging your appliances or worse. Please keep yourself and your family safe.

Help us help you. If you have a hydrant near your home, please clear a path to and around it. Taking a few minutes to clear a hydrant before it is needed could make all the difference in an emergency. Thank you!

Members of District 36 RIT (Comprised of RIT members from Wayside Fire Company #2 and Tinton Falls Fire Company #1) went to Middlesex Fire Academy to practice and advance their RIT techniques. They practiced and drilled on scenarios such as a firefighter falling through a floor, a firefighter lost and confused, and a firefighter with injuries and low air. By training in these simulated environments with smoke, heat and cold weather, our RIT team is able to be prepared in case a scenario like this ever arises. The drill was a success and we would like to thank the Middlesex Fire Academy and its instructors for having us along with Tinton Falls EMS South who stood by to make sure our members were safe.

Members of Wayside Fire Company #2 went to Middlesex Fire Academy to practice and advance their fire-ground skills through foam drill training. Crews worked together on hose-line advancement and fire suppression techniques with the use of foam (foam is used depending on certain fires to either extinguish or suppress fire). The drill was a success and we would like to thank the Middlesex Fire Academy and its instructors for having us along with Tinton Falls EMS South who stood by to make sure our members were safe.

Sunday evening, at 10:45 PM, District 36 RIT (Comprised of Rapid Intervention Team Members from Tinton Falls Fire Company #1 and Wayside Fire Company #2) were dispatched to Ocean Ave in Sea Bright for a 2nd Alarm working fire in a taxpayer structure. Ladder 2-90 and Engine 1-76 along with Chiefs 2-66, 2-67 and 1-66 responded to the scene. Crews (totaling 15 members) were able to split into two teams of 6 and 7 members on the A side and C side of the structure while 2-66 had RIT Command located at fire command. Crews stayed on location providing RIT coverage until 2:00 AM Monday morning. Great work by all agencies involved on the quick rescue of one individual that was entrapped and the aggressive and safe fire attack to control the blaze from spreading.
