Port Reading Fire Company paid tribute to the victims of 9-11 along with other woodbridge twp departments and 1st responders at woodbridge High School. Excellent job by all and thank you mayor and councilmen for honoring all those lost that day. Never forget!

09/11/2021

On this night 20 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 of saving lives. None of them saw past 10:00am Sept 11, 2001. In one single moment life may never be the same. Tonight as 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.

This week alone we had 4 requests for mutual aid due to structure fires in neighboring districts and towns. Thanksgiving is right around the corner.

Did you know Thanksgiving Day is one of the peak days for home cooking fires? Please remember these safety tips for when you and your family give thanks this Thursday:

🔥 Keep all items that can catch on fire away from any flame source such as a stove, grill or turkey fryer

🧯Never use water on any grease fire. Make sure your kitchen has a Class ABC (Dry Chem) or CO2 extinguisher when cooking. In addition, if your oven is on fire, turn off the heat source (gas or electric), keep the oven closed and dial 911.

🏠Turkey Fryers when in use should never be in or near porches, garages, awnings, gazebos or close to your house. This alone carries 57% of all structure fires on Thanksgiving Day. Always remember to fully thaw your turkey before placing in the fryer.

👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 Have a fire escape plan with your family and practice it. Designate a child-free area in the kitchen when cooking to protect them from getting burned.
