Change your clock, Change your batteries

It’s that time of year again. Now that many of us have clocks that automatically change with Daylight Savings Time it is extremely important to not forget about changing your detector batteries. Even if your detectors are hard wired, there is still a battery inside as a backup just in case we lose power, like during Sandy. You must change your batteries at least annually, and if your detectors are not hard wired, at least semi-annually. Please don’t wait until the detector starts to beep at 3am, change the batteries now.

Also don’t forget to check your dates, smoke detectors are good for 10 years and Carbon Monoxide detectors are good for 5 years. There should be a date sticker on the back, don’t go by when you purchased it or bought your home. If you need assistance in changing your batteries please call the firehouse, NOT 911. We will be happy to assist you in checking your alarms, replacing your batteries, or answering any questions you may have.

Note: We are 100% volunteer so please leave a message and someone will get back you. If you have an emergency call 911.

Ex-Chief James Fair Passes


Friends and family, we will be gathering at the East Millstone Methodist Church (Elm St, East Millstone) for a celebration of James’ life. Services will be held at 2pm on April 5th, 2014. After the services, all are welcome to join us at our firehouse (Millstone Valley Fire Department) for food, drinks, laughs and reminiscing.


It is with deep regret that we announce the passing of Ex-Chief and Life Member James Fair. In addition to his service with the Millstone Valley Fire Department James served his community as a Fire District #1 Commissioner, and Captain of the East Millstone First Aid Squad. James was a cornerstone of the East Millstone community devoting his life to helping others, mentoring the town’s youth and strong leadership to his emergency services peers.

At this time the family will be holding services in Florida, where James lived. A memorial is being planned in East Millstone for the spring time to celebrate his life.  As more information becomes available we will update this post.
