On Thursday October 6th, our Junior Firefighters joined other surrounding departments at the Monmouth County Fire Academy for a hands on night of skill practice. Our Junior progam is designed for those students between the ages of 16 – 18 looking to give back to the community as well as looking towards a possible career in Emergency Management whether it be career or volunteer. We have a young crew that is highly motivated and will possibly join the department upon their 18th birthday.

Our young kids had the opportunity to climb on the equipment while asking questions and just have fun. Special thanks to all who participated and be on the look out for a bigger event next year!!!
Tuesday evening members from the Millstone Township Fire Company sharpened their skills on motor vehicle extrication. The scenario has 2 vehicles with side impact and overturn. Members need to secure the scene, stabilize vehicles, assess potential patient injury, extricate patient(s) and turn over to EMS all in a matter of minutes. Constant practice on extrication and all facets of Fire/EMS is critical to successful outcomes.
