Whitehouse Rescue Squad, Readington, NJ

16 hours 29 minutes ago

HEAT EMERGENCY!

The Whitehouse Station Sauce Company brewed up this special hot batch for the squad!

Come out and see us today and tomorrow at the annual Saucetoberfest at Schaefer Farms in Readington.

The 10th Annual Ed Busher Memorial Golf Outing was a huge success! This was the biggest event yet.

Years ago, the Wonderbar Restaurant, owned by the Bushers was a huge supporter of our squad, raising over $100,000 over 25 years for us by hosting venison and roast beef dinners. The Wonderbar was sold, and Ed sadly passed. His son Mike carried on with family tradition, and created the golf event. Mike and his family work hard to put this event on for us, and we appreciate everything they do for us.

Thank you to the Bushers, the players and the sponsors!

A portion of the proceeds from this 2 day event helps benefit the squad!

Whitehouse Fire Company

Today, we honored those lost in the 9/11 tragedy.

Our Rescue Services Division, led by Assistant Chief George Liothake participated today at the annual 9/11 Stairclimb.

The photos below are our members who participated. Some are members of other departments, and participated either with us or in another department uniform. We all are part of a united team and our mission is the same.

Event details:

The Raritan Township Fire Company with the Hunterdon Medical Center, hosted the 9/11 Stairclimb to honor the fallen on 9/11/01 and to help benefit the still suffering responders that came to the FDNY's aid.
The challenge will be to climb the equivalent number of stairs that the FDNY firefighers climbed in the World Trade Center prior to the collapses.

Proceeds from this event go to the FeelGood Foundation. (Feelgoodfoundation.com) They assist all emergency personnel, including but not limited to, firefighters, police officers, nurses, volunteers, sanitation workers, transportation workers and construction workers, within the United States who have been injured, or face serious injury due to action or omission, in the course of their duties or within their everyday lives.

We were thrilled when Mateo Hollain chose us for his photo shoot with NJ Monthly Magazine!

Mateo is a dedicated 14 year old who helps us, and other charities in many ways.

He will be at our Hay Day event on September 30 to help raise funds. Be sure to stop by and see him!
