Cheesequake Volunteer Fire Company Old Bridge Township NJ Fire District #2
(23)

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.

With MD schools being closed due to COVID-19, the Prince George's County Professional Fire Fighters & Paramedics Association would like to remind everyone that is a good time to go over your emergency escape plan with your children. It's highly recommended to have a plan in place in the event of a fire or other emergency. Also, be sure to have a designated meeting place outside, a safe distance away from your home.

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. 🚒🏪

A burglary to Rahway Fire Department New Jersey. Please help them out to solve this case!

*** Update*** Thank you for all of the shares and tips! As a result of your help, two of the four suspects have turned themselves in and are cooperating fully with our investigation. The initial report indicated that the suspects used the credit card to purchase gasoline. Further investigation revealed that this is not accurate. We are still in the process of investigating this incident, and hope to bring it to a complete resolution quickly. We appreciate your support and assistance.
__________________________________
The Rahway Police Department is actively investigating a burglary to Rahway Fire Headquarters that occurred in the early morning hours of November 29, 2019.

Video cameras from inside the fire station captured the images of the four male suspects, who appear to be in their early 20s. The men arrogantly entered fire headquarters through an open door while the firemen were out on an emergency call. The suspects lingered in the bay area, and even pointed to the surveillance cameras. They then rummaged through the offices and building, and left before emergency personnel returned from the call. The suspects stole one of the fire fighter’s jacket that contained his keys, wallet, cash and credit cards.

We are seeking the public’s assistance in helping to identify the four men. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Rahway Police Department TIPS line at 732/ 388-1553
