Cheesequake Volunteer Fire Company

Cheesequake Volunteer Fire Company Old Bridge Township NJ Fire District #2 A History of Our Company. The Cheesequake Volunteer Fire Company was incorporated in 1926 with a membership of 20 Volunteers.

The land on which house #1 now stands, was donated by William Gross, a charter member of the fire company. The first building was a 12'x 15' tin shed, which was used to house a hand drawn chemical wagon obtained from the Morgan Munitions Plant. In 1932, a building was purchased from the Crescent Sportsman Club, and moved to the site of the shed, to house the 1917 Model T fire truck, purchased from the Leonardo Fire Dept. In 1937, a 1931 Chevy fire engine was purchased from New Jersey Fire Equipment Company. This truck remained in service until 1950, when an addition was put on the building to house a new International Pumper(201). In 1959, when another 750gpm pumper (203) was ordered, a completely new firehouse was built. This was dedicated in May of 1960. In 1961 another pumper (202) was put into service, then in 1965, when a decision was made to order an 85' aerial ladder truck (204), an extension was built and the building was enlarged. In 1969, a 4 wheel drive pickup was ordered for use as a utility vehicle. This vehicle was later adapted with a slide-on-pump for use as a brush truck (206). In 1971, we acquired a 1000gpm pumper (207) and a station wagon for the Cheif's car (209). In 1976, we received our Rescue and Squad Truck, (205). The fire house on highway 516 was built in 1967 to protect the rapidly growing Lakeridge area. It remained empty due to the lack of manpower, until early in 1969, when a recruiting drive with the help of local newspapers netted us the neucleus of our fire fighting crew of "Engine Two". Station 3 opened in the late 1970's in a building that was originally a church. Due to the size and the age/condition of the building in the mid 1990's the fire company replaced the old church building with a modern, steel construction building.

Mission: We, The Cheesequake Volunteer Fire Company, are Fire District #2 and our objectives are to keep you and your family safe, keep your possessions safe, and maintain stability in the community.

DON't THROW WATER ON GREASE FIRE: "Sarnia Fire Rescue Services wanted to demonstrate why you should NEVER throw water on a grease fire! Always “look while you cook” but if your cooking oil ever catches on fire safely put on a tight-fitting lid or cookie sheet, turn off the heat and let it completely cool." - Sarnia Fire Rescue https://bit.ly/2RS4cUt

Rescue 205 responded on a mutual aid cover assignment into NYC for FDNY 19 years ago.

On this day... 19 years ago 246 people went to sleep in preparation for their morning flights. 2,606 people went to sleep in preparation for work in the morning. 343 firefighters went to sleep in preparation for their morning shift. 60 police officers went to sleep in preparation for morning patrol. 8 paramedics went to sleep in preparation for the morning shift. None of them saw past 10:00am Sept 11, 2001. In one single moment life may never be the same. As you live and enjoy the breaths you take today and tonight before you go to sleep in preparation for your life tomorrow, kiss the ones you love, snuggle a little tighter, and never take one second of your life for granted.

Commissioners of Fire District #1

After an all night battle was held by multiple fire companies from all around the area. This morning things looks to be in the firefighter's favor. Large scale damage remains from the battle the was waged. Multiple structures have sustained damage from the inferno.

I would like to remind everyone just how important our community's "Volunteer" firefighters are. Without the large scale deployment of these dedicated Volunteer firefighters from many communities. The devastation would have been much worse.

So, the next time you see a fund raiser or a firefighter out in the street with a boot. Please support them. The give all and risk all for you and the community.

But, the most important thing is. if you want to be a firefighter ask a firefighter how to join. If you have high school students, get them involved in a junior firefighter program. Nothing looks better on a college application then community service. Get involved today, to make a better and safer tomorrow. 🚒🏪
