On Monday, September 18, 2017 Somerset Fire & Rescue and Elizabeth Avenue Fire were dispatched to a 2nd alarm structure fire in the Finderne section of Bridgewater Township. Rescue 56 and Ladder 26 responded as a Rapid Intervention Company. The crews remained on scene for approximately 90 minutes.
On September 8-10, 2017 members from Somerset Fire & Rescue, Elizabeth Avenue Fire, Community Fire/Rescue, Franklin Township Office of Fire Prevention and Franklin Park Fire attended a 3 day course on structural collapse training hosted by Somerset Fire at the Somerset Firehouse. This 3-day class conducted by Safety and Survival Training LLC. This multi-day training covered the skills to certify the attendees to the awareness and operations level. All of the members from the different departments worked seamlessly to make this class an enormous success. We look forward to having S&ST LLC. back soon for future classes.
