Here are some photos of the more major events that took place for Millstone Valley this week! On Tuesday 4/30/24 members from our station took a ride to the Somerville Burn Tower to conduct our live burn. Members trained on important skills including fire suppression, search, and ventilation. It was a great way to keep everyone’s confidence up and see what areas can always be improved. There’s no days off when it comes to training! Great work to the 17 members that were able to come out! Also a thank you to the Somerset County Intructors for their assistance and knowledge as well!

Yesterday at around 4:40 pm our station was requested for our drones into South Brunswick to assist PD in searching for a missing person. Our Ranger was also requested due to the area that needed to be searched. Deputy 28, Utility 28 with our drone trailer, brush 28 with Ranger 1, and Air 28 responded. Once arriving crews got 2 drones in service and started with a grid pattern search. After some time searching we were advised of a new plan that involved bringing in all South Brunswick Fire companies, while they were en route PD advised the person was located. We were released soon after at 7:00 pm.

Early this morning at 2:30 am we were dispatched for our Air Truck into Franklin District 2 for the 2nd alarm structure fire. Chief 28 and Air 28 with a crew of 6 responded. When they arrived A28 crew began assisting with fire suppression and overhaul, while the driver began filling air bottles. Station 28 remained on scene until 5:00 am. We are always appreciating our members for responding no matter what time of day that call comes in!

We are always looking for volunteers! If you or someone you know is looking for a way to help others and be a part of a great team , stop down anytime Sunday to Thursday 7-9 pm to see how you can make a difference! Coming to the firehouse is always the first step! And the training is free! #MillstoneValley #dronecall #mutualaid

Yesterday at 12:15 pm Station 28 was dispatched for our RIT into Hillsborough Township for a confirmed Structure fire. Deputy 28, Squad 28 and Utility 28 made the response and after arriving, DC 28 assumed RIT boss duties while the members of 28 stood by as RIT. Due to the amount of stations there for Rapid Intervention and fire operations becoming exterior only, a few members from our station were switched over to the manpower pool. In that time we assisted with fire suppression and getting equipment up to the firefighters on the roof before being assigned back as RIT.

This was an extensive operation by the Hillsborough Firefighters and surrounding companies due to a partial collapse from the first floor and where the fire had traveled, which was into the basement and attic. Once firefighters made a final sweep in the basement for any hot spots and wet the area down Station 28 was re assigned from Rapid Intervention to assist with overhaul and wetting the front section of the structure down. At 7:00 pm we were released from the scene. Thank you to the Volunteers who could make it out to assist our neighbors in Hillsborough. #millstonevalley #mutualaid

‼️🚩⚠️ Elevated Risk for the Spread of Wildfires - Monday, April 22

US National Weather Service Philadelphia/Mount Holly has issued a Special Weather Statement for the elevated risk for the spread of wildfires in New Jersey.

The combination of low relative humidity values between 20 and 30 percent, northwest winds around 10-15 mph, gusting between 15 to 20 mph, and drying fuels will increase the potential for the spread of fires today.

Residents are urged to exercise caution handling any potential ignition source including machinery, cigarettes and matches. Be sure to properly discard all smoking materials. Any dry grasses and tree litter that ignite will have the potential to spread quickly.
