On 6/15/24 we held our yearly drill at Chubb Engineering Center in branchburg. Members from stations 44 @middlebushfire and 56 @svfrc1 also attended. Members had the opportunity to get an up close look at sprinkler systems, fire pumps and alarm systems and what’s going on behind the scenes in a controlled environment. Understanding how all of these work together is key when pulling up to an activated fire alarm/ waterflow alarm. Members had the opportunity to re familiarize themselves with the systems and different fire pumps. They were also shown how to safely and correctly close them or check to see if water is flowing and what riser or area it would be.

In addition to that members also had the chance to see live demonstrations of different sprinkler heads and what happens when they are installed incorrectly or damaged. One sprinkler head was also demonstrated with the cap still on to show just how drastically the water flow can change. At the end there was also a display on what happens when a sprinkler head activates after being introduced to heat/fire. This drill was a great way to refresh memories and learn more about these systems that are common in our district. Understanding what’s going on and how to figure out a problem when we’re called ensures the problem is fixed and continues working properly! Thank you to Michele for the tour and valuable information, and also a thank you to our Captain, Ryan Hunt for organizing this drill for our members! Thank you to those who could make it out! #MillstoneValley #Chubbriskengineeringcenter #Yearlydrill

Good to hear it was a great time

Last night just before 1:00 am District 1 was alerted to the area of Main Street and Maple Ave in Millstone Borough for the reported vehicle fire fully involved 5 feet from a building. Deputy 28 arrived quickly to confirm the report. Chief 28 and Squad 28 arrived shortly after and nosed into the driveway, with Air 28 following just a minute behind. The crews split up and stretched the bumper line off the Squad , and a 1” 3/4 cross lay. Engine 26-1 @eavfc26 also arrived and laid into the Squad to secure a water supply.

Due to the quick actions from everyone on scene the fire was quickly knocked down with no extension to the building. Great work from everyone as this could’ve been much worse. We had 14 members respond to this call. We are constantly appreciating our members and the dedication they have to protecting the community. D1 units were clear around 3 am after soaking the vehicle and area down. #MillstoneValley #MvFire @svfrc1 @middlebushfire
