Navigating the Millstone River.
On Saturday afternoon, July 31st, Franklin Fire District 1 was dispatched to a water rescue in the Millstone River. Car 56, Special Ops 56, Rescue 56, and Utility 56 towing Marine 2 & 3 responded.
Don Sweeney, a life member/past president of Somerset Fire & Rescue, and ex-commissioner of Franklin Fire District 1, recently suffered a serious accident and still remains in the ICU. His prognosis is good but the recovery will be long and difficult. Don is a husband, father, and has always been active in the community. A gofundme has been created to support the Sweeney family in their time of need, any assistance will be greatly appreciated!
