From our family to yours Have a safe, healthy and Happy Thanksgiving.

Let us not forget those who have to work today or can not be home, to keep us safe. Firefighters, Law Enforcement, EMTs, Paramedics, Nurses, Tow operators, Doctors and Military Personnel.

Here are some Thanksgiving Safety tips.

Thanksgiving
Safety

The kitchen is the heart of the home, especially at Thanksgiving. Kids love to be involved in holiday preparations. Safety in the kitchen is important,
especially on Thanksgiving Day when there is a lot of activity and people at home.

* Stay in the kitchen when you are cooking on the stovetop so you can keep an eye on the food.
* Stay in the home when cooking your turkey and check on it frequently.
* Keep children away from the stove. The stove will be hot and kids should stay 3 feet away.
* Make sure kids stay away from hot food and liquids. The steam or splash from vegetables, gravy or coffee could cause serious burns.
* Keep the floor clear so you don’t trip over kids, toys, pocketbooks or bags.
* Keep knives out of the reach of children.
* Be sure electric cords from an electric knife, coffee maker, plate warmer or mixer are not dangling off the counter within easy reach of a child.
* Keep matches and utility lighters out of the reach of children — up high in a locked cabinet.
* Never leave children alone in room with a lit candle.
* Make sure your smoke alarms are working. Test them by pushing the test button.

Did you know?

Thanksgiving is the leading day of the year for home fires involving cooking equipment.

Have activities that keep kids out of the kitchen during this busy time. Games, puzzles or books can keep them busy. Kids can get involved in
Thanksgiving preparations with recipes that can be done outside the kitchen.

Weather Advisory:

Heavy rain and thunderstorms are forecast for much of the state Wednesday. A Flash Flood Watch is in effect from 2 PM through 8 PM Wednesday for NW Burlington, Camden, Gloucester, Hunterdon, Mercer, Middlesex, Monmouth, Morris, Salem, and Somerset Counties. 1” to 2” of rain is forecast with 3” to 4” possible in heaviest storms. Damaging winds and localized flooding are possible.

Impacts to New Jersey

Heavy rain Wednesday creates the potential for localized flooding in urban areas, roadways, places with poor drainage, small creeks and streams, and areas where rainfall is heaviest. Gusty winds may damage trees and impact power lines. Monitor local forecasts today for additional severe weather advisories in your area.

Downed Power Line Safety:
Downed power lines can carry an electric current strong enough to cause serious injury or even death. Electricity wants to move from a high voltage zone to a low voltage zone – and it could do that through your body.

� If you see a downed power line, move away from it and anything touching it. The ground around power lines – up to 35 feet away - may be energized.
� You cannot tell whether or not a power line is energized just by looking at it. You should assume that all downed power lines are live.
� The proper way to move away from the power line is to shuffle away with small steps, keeping your feet together and on the ground at all times. This will minimize the potential for a strong electric shock.
� If you see someone who is in direct or indirect contact with the downed line, do not touch the person. You could become the next victim. Call 911 for help.
� Do not attempt to move a downed power line or anything else in contact with it by using an object such as a broom or stick. Even non-conductive materials like wood or cloth, can conduct electricity if even slightly wet.
� Be careful not to
touch or step in
water near where
a downed power
line is located.
� Do not drive over
downed power
lines.
� If your car comes in contact with a downed power line while you are inside, stay in the car. Honk your horn to summon help, but direct others to stay away from your car.
� If you must leave your car because it is on fire, jump out of the vehicle with both feet together and avoid contact with both the car and the ground at the same time. Shuffle away from the car.

Latest information from NJ Office of Emergency Management

Extreme heat is forecast through the weekend. An Excessive Heat Warning is posted today through 10 PM Sunday for all New Jersey counties. An Air Quality Alert is posted from 11 AM to 11 PM Friday for Bergen, Essex, Hudson, and Union Counties. High temperatures and humidity will result in heat index temperatures that range from 98˚ to 110˚ on Friday, and 105˚ to 115˚ on Saturday and Sunday.

Impacts to New Jersey

High heat index temperatures increase the risk of life-threatening heat-related illnesses. Vulnerable populations include the elderly, very young, people with chronic health issues, those with heart and lung conditions, people without air conditioning, pets, and people working outside. Avoid strenuous activity outside during the hottest part of the day, stay hydrated, and never leave children and pets in cars. Heat stroke can be deadly

Ensure your 4th of July weekend is filled with celebration and not regret with these 10 fire safety tips, from FEMA!

1. Be sure fireworks are legal in your area before using or buying them.
2. Always have an adult supervise fireworks activities and never allow children to play with or ignite fireworks. Sparklers alone account for one quarter of emergency room fireworks injuries.
3. If you set off fireworks, keep a bucket of water handy in case of malfunction or fire.
4. If fireworks malfunction, don’t relight them! Douse and soak them with water then throw them away.
5. Never ignite fireworks in a container, especially one that is glass or metal.
6. Use your grill well away from your home and deck railings, and out from under branches or overhangs.
7. Open your gas grill before lighting.
8. Periodically remove grease or fat buildup in trays below your gas or propane grill so it cannot be ignited.
9. Declare a three-foot "kid and pet-free zone" around the grill to keep them safe.
10. Avoid loose clothing that can catch fire when cooking on the grill.

General information

In the early part of 1958, several interested men met at the home of William Morris to discuss the establishment of a Volunteer Fire Company. Prior to this time several attempts were made by uninterested individuals to form a fire company, but the cost and lack of response made the efforts fail. On April 28th, 1958, Clifton T. Barkalow, Attorney, incorporated the Company and on May 5th, 1958, the first organizational meeting was held at the Robertsville School. At this meeting Bob Nivison was elected Chief and William E. Storer as President. A dream has become a reality and the seed was sown. No one could have foreseen the rapid and dynamic growth that was to come in the next half of century. In October, 1958 the Company acquired its first piece of equipment. A 1940 GMC pumper classified as K-31, purchased through the generosity of Howard Preston for $2500. This truck has become a source of extreme pride through the years as a first-line pumper and today as a Parade Vehicle. It will always occupy an honored place in the Company. K-34, a 1958 White chain-driven tanker/trailer was purchased to supply water to the Company. It remained in service off and on, until 1962. The Company had no home and the equipment was housed at Frank Boyce’s Garage on Rt. 9. 6.4 acres of land was purchased in November of 1958, from the Lambersons at the present site of the company for use to build a firehouse in the near future. Up until the purchase of a siren in March, 1959 the firefighters used a phone relay system to notify each other of an alarm. This method of notification stayed in use, in one way or another, until phased out later. A need for a firehouse was apparent and on January 26th 1960, a mortgage was obtained for $10,000 from the Central Jersey Bank and Trust Company. This money was to be used to build a firehouse on the land purchased in 1958. Work began on the original building in March of 1960, and the firehouse was completed a little more than a year later in August of 1961. The original building was erected with the blood, sweat and tears of those men and women who were driven by their sense of community and the many donations of material and labor of so many others. The years from 1961 to 1963 were filled with many memories. The fighting of some memorable fires at the Stokes home, Julia’s Drive-in, the G&G Egg plant and the Koos Brothers furniture store, to name a few. The classes held at the firehouse by the the Robertsville school, the Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts and so much more. The dances and parties to celebrate weddings and christenings of community people made the firehouse a focal point in the lives of many.
