Responding with our neighbors Whitehouse Fire Company

The Whitehouse Fire Company was dispatched this evening at 2005 hours to the Ryland Inn for a reported vehicle fire. Chief 22 responded shortly after and found a pickup truck towing a vehicle that was fully involved in front of TD Bank on Route 22 westbound. Shortly after dispatch, Engine 22-1 responded with a crew of 4, followed by Engine 22-2. Readington PD shut down 22 west allowing all responding fire units to utilize the fire lane cross over to approach the scene in the eastbound lanes. Crews from Engine 22-1 stretched a line from Engine 31 and extinguished the fire and prevented extension to the tow truck.. All units cleared up at 2050 hours. Great work by all responding companies.

Photo from the landing zone at Solberg Airport this morning. Incident was a pedestrian struck by a vehicle on Pulaski Road.

Patient was treated on scene and flown to RWJ New Brunswick trauma center.

Last week, several members from both our EMS and Rescue Divisions turned out for a our monthly drill night. The scenario involved a single vehicle motor vehicle crash, with one occupant ejected and one entrapped. 2 BLS crews made up of probationary EMTs assessed the two patients at the direction of one of our newly promoted senior EMTs who had her first experience as the incident commander. Meanwhile, our RSU crew stabilized the vehicle involved and extricated the driver. This joint drill allowed each division to train together in order to enhance not only the skills required of their respective disciplines, but also those of teamwork and communication.

Drill was led by Tim Van Deursen,
Onboarding Coordinator for the Whitehouse Rescue Squad

A few words of wisdom-
Never forget where you came from and always strive to make your "home" departments proud of your accomplishments.
Be Proud ! Be Brave ! Be Strong ! Most of all, Be Prepared !
Remember no matter where you are, no matter what you do, you always represent your department(s). Conduct yourself everyday with that in mind.
When a man becomes a fireman his greatest act of bravery has been accomplished. What he does after that is all in the line of work (Chief Edward F. Croker, FDNY)
Good Luck and stay safe !
Chief Robert Emery
