The members and the officers regret to announce the passing of Frank Karmade.
Frank joined the Washington Fire Company No 1 in 1962 and rose to the rank of Chief Driver in 1973 a position he's held until his passing. Frank was also a life member of the Burlington County Fire Police Association and past Captain of the Emergency Squad when it was under firehouse command at the old firehouse.
The firehouse was near and dear to Frank, as he spent the majority of his day here helping to take care of the buildings and grounds for years, Frank would be the first one to grab a shovel to help with snow or clean up from an event. Everyone will here will miss him dearly and the conversations with him.
In the words of Frank, "you know him, your boy"
Family and friends are invited to celebrate Frank's life this Saturday March 25th from 9am-12pm at Sweeney's Funeral Home 337 Bridgeboro St, Riverside, NJ 08075 with burial to follow at Odd Fellows Cemetery in Burlington.

Please take note of the special weather conditions today.
We are expecting critical fire weather conditions in NJ today (Red Flag Warning). Elevated fire weather conditions today for eastern PA, DE and most of the MD Eastern Shore. Gusty winds, very dry air and a dry ground may lead to quick fire spread.
