COVID-19  March 30, 2020 With the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) across the country and here in New Jersey, Robertsville Volunteer Fire Co. , is taking steps to limit the reach of the virus in our community.

Township of Marlboro, Monmouth County, New Jersey

If you are quarantined (mandatory or self imposed) in your home or business due to possible or confirmed COVID-19 exposure, PLEASE notify 911 when you call and advise the dispatcher. We also ask that you place a sign/note on your front door to alert our firefighters, EMTs and Law enforcement officers to take infection-prevention precautions before entering your home or business.
We need to protect our crews so that they will be able to continue to meet the emergency needs of the community. Elsewhere, there have been entire fire companies quarantined after they have responded to quarantined homes and were not alerted before entering. Those first responders are now unavailable to help anyone for at least 14 days.
In our department we CANNOT afford to have this happen and being VOLUNTEER we do not want to have to take it home to our families.
Thank you for your understanding

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.

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.
