Working with our partners yesterday at several incidents in the Township.

Yesterday around 1730 hrs Readington Fire was dispatched on Box 2254 Level 3 for the house struck by lightning on Thor Solberg Rd. While responding, 2 other calls in our primary went out for a fire alarm and wires down, which were handled by Neshanic Volunteer Fire Company and Three Bridges Volunteer Fire Company.

North Branch Volunteer Fire Company was also on a call in Branchburg down the road and requested to Thor Solberg Rd. Chief 49 arrived and advised units of smoke coming from the residence. Chief 32 then requested Tender Task Force East due to no fire hydrants in the area. Ladder 49 and Engine 49-8 arrived stretching a line to the rear and to the front door. Squad 32 arrived and set up ladders along with assisting 49s crew with salvage and overhaul. Tender 32 supplied water to Ladder 49. Fire was located in the attic of the residence from lightning hitting the chimney which caught the attic on fire. Ladder 22 from Whitehouse Fire Company also assisted with overhaul. Fire was contained to the attic space near the chimney. Great job to all on scene and the help from mutual aid.

Madison, daughter of our members Jenny Kubik and Anthony Duarte, helped out with CFARS EMT course earlier this week by letting Whitehouse's EMS observers and other future EMT's from the county practice their pediatric assessment skills.

We thank Madison for her hard work and dedication to our squad to help train our new members. As you can see she had a long day and needed a nap!

Countless hours go into the planning of large events, especially ones the size of the Quick Chek NJ Festival of Ballooning.

We are on the forefront of new technology, and for the 2019 festival, we implemented two up and coming technologies, FirstNet mobile devices and Hunterdon County’s CRG mapping software.

FirstNet provided 10 Kyocera phones and two Netgear hotspots for use by our responders in the field to transmit information not suitable for radio. This ensured consistent access with FirstNet’s priority and preemption capability, even when the cell network is congested with the many visitors at the Balloon Fest. On these devices, responders were able to access the Hunterdon County funded GXP OnScene software, by Critical Response Group. Detailed maps were provided and shared between police and EMS to ensure everyone shared a common picture of how the event was laid out to promote faster, more concise communication. GPS tracking provided our EMS Bike Team and field units with grid locations in a 3 foot accuracy.

At the 2019 event, we treated almost 300 patients with various injuries and conditions, and this technology helped us provide a quicker response.

Looking for a way to help your community? We are actively looking for new volunteers! All of the training is 100% free. Please e-mail us at join@whitehouserescue.com with any inquiries or questions.

Upcoming fundraiser to support the RHSO.

We will be there!
