Today at 1234 hrs Whitehouse Rescue and Whitehouse Fire Company were alerted for a horse stuck in a creek and down an embankment. Due to the adverse weather, it made ground conditions especially tricky for rescuers. Rescue BLS 22-55, BLS 22-52, BLS 22-54, Utility 22-5, Gator 22-5, Car 22-5-2 and Heavy Rescue 22-5 along with mutual aid partners were able to get the horse out of the creek and down the embankment. Flemington-Raritan First Aid and Rescue Squad was requested for their heavy rescue and MSU to assist with the rescue. Members placed heated blankets on the horse to keep her warm while the lift system was constructed. Eventually, the horse was brought to a standing position by using multiple grip hoists along with a bipod to support the horse until it was able to stand on its own. Members operated on scene for nearly 4 hours before the horse was left in the comfort of its stall. Thank you to our mutual aid units for assisting us with this rescue. ... See MoreSee Less

SLOW DOWN and MOVE OVER! In our primary coverage area we cover many major thoroughfares such as Route 78, Route 22, Route 202, Route 31 and Route 523. There is always the same reservation amongst crew members when responding to these locations because of how dangerous it is. On the side of these major roadways it becomes a matter of inches for first responders to appropriately tend to those in need and keep themselves safe. Unfortunately on February 25th at 3am, many of the long held fears came true. While alerted for a crash on Route 78, a passing vehicle struck a state police car on location and continued a short distance down the highway. Two state troopers occupied the police car that was struck. Both state troopers were transported by our agency to local hospitals for further evaluation. Please do your part to keep emergency scenes and first responders safe. Slow down, move over - it’s the law. ... See MoreSee Less
