Please be advised that many of the roadways in Marlboro Township remain closed and impassable due to wires and telephone poles that have come down blocking access. If you are going to be out please drive safely and obey all traffic directions and detours. We are also aware there are many residence and businesses without power. The township has been in contact with JCP&L representatives. Work crews are in Marlboro removing trees and restoring power lines. However, with the number of power outages throughout New Jersey following the storm JCP&L is predicting a multi-day outage for many of us.

The Marlboro Township Recreation Center (1996 Recreation Way off of Wyncrest Road) will be open as a charging and cooling center today from 9am until 9pm. Please enter the recreation center through the side entrance (follow signs to “Gym”). To keep everyone safe face coverings/masks must be worn and social distancing is required. As we remain under a State Public Health Emergency note that you may be asked to wait outside in order for us to adhere to the recommend limits on indoor gatherings.

Weather Update for Marlboro/Morganville Area

Thunderstorms are expected to begin after 8am. By 1pm, thunderstorms are expected to end, but rain will continue through 5pm. Rainfall totals ranging 1.00-1.50 inch are forecast. Winds will range 45-50 mph with gusts to 60 mph. By early evening, rain should end and winds will begin to subside

With the High winds and rain, there could be wires down and power outages.

Remember all wires from utility poles, regardless of type could be energized, if see one on the ground, call 9-1-1 and stay away. if you are using a generator remember the following

Using a Generator at Home
The primary hazards to avoid when using a generator are carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning from the toxic engine exhaust, electric shock or electrocution, and fire. Follow the directions supplied with the generator. (Learn more about carbon monoxide poisoning.)

To avoid electrocution, keep the generator dry and do not use in rain or wet conditions. Operate it on a dry surface under an open canopy-like structure, such as under a tarp held up on poles. Do not touch the generator with wet hands.
Be sure to turn the generator off and let it cool down before refueling. Gasoline spilled on hot engine parts could ignite.
Store fuel for the generator in an approved safety can. Use the type of fuel recommended in the instructions or on the label on the generator.

Store the fuel outside of living areas in a locked shed or other protected area. To guard against accidental fire, do not store it near a fuel-burning appliance, such as a natural gas water heater in a garage.

Plug appliances directly into the generator, or use a heavy duty, outdoor-rated extension cord that is rated (in watts or amps) at least equal to the sum of the connected appliance loads.

Check that the entire cord is free of cuts or tears and that the plug has all three prongs, especially a grounding pin.

Never try to power the house wiring by plugging the generator into a wall outlet. Known as “backfeeding,” this practice puts utility workers, your neighbors and your household at risk of electrocution.

Remember, even a properly connected portable generator can become overloaded, resulting in overheating or generator failure. Be sure to read the instructions.

If necessary, stagger the operating times for various equipment to prevent overloads.

Prevent Carbon Monoxide (CO) Poisoning
Never use a generator, grill, camp stove or other gasoline, propane, natural gas or charcoal-burning devices inside a home, garage, basement, crawlspace or any partially enclosed area.
Keep these devices outdoors, away from doors, windows and vents that could allow carbon monoxide to come indoors.
Opening doors and windows or using fans will not prevent CO buildup in the home. Although CO can't be seen or smelled, it can rapidly lead to full incapacitation and death. Even if you cannot smell exhaust fumes, you may still be exposed to CO. If you start to feel sick, dizzy, or weak while using a generator, get to fresh air RIGHT AWAY - DO NOT DELAY.
Install CO alarms in central locations on every level of your home and outside sleeping areas to provide early warning of accumulating carbon monoxide.


Test the batteries frequently and replace when needed.

If the carbon monoxide alarm sounds, move quickly to a fresh air location outdoors or by an open window or door.


Call for help from the fresh air location and remain there until emergency personnel arrive to assist you.

The 4th of July is a time to celebrate our independence. During this time of celebration, we would like the residents of Marlboro to be aware of the hazards of using fireworks.

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

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.
