As the Holiday Season approaches, the last thing people need to worry about is being able to put food on the table for themselves and/or their family. Kendall Park Volunteer Fire Company and South Brunswick Home Depot have teamed up once again to help those in need by collecting non-perishable food items that will be donated to the South Brunswick Food Pantry and are available to South Brunswick residents. Please stop by the Fire Station at 125 New Road (M-F 8am-5pm) OR the SB Home Depot (M-F 8am-5pm) to drop off items in the designated boxes through December 31st.

For those in need, please visit https://www.southbrunswicknj.gov/food-pantry for information on how to register and pick up food. We want to wish the South Brunswick community a Happy and Safe Thanksgiving.

Sunday 10/29/23 at approximately 11:33AM Kendall Park Volunteer Fire Company was dispatched to a working car fire near the intersection of New Rd and Pyne Rd. Deputy Chief 230 arrived and confirmed a working vehicle fire with no occupants and the engine still running. Engine 221 arrived shortly after. E221 crew secured the vehicle with wheel chocks and made a quick stop preventing the fire from spreading outside of the passenger compartment. E221 crew then made access to the engine compartment to safely shut down the engine. SBPD controlled traffic and KPFAS stood by on scene for any potential EMS needs. Great job by everyone involved.

Yesterday 10/28/23 KPVFC Participated in a Live Burn Drill at the Middlesex County Fire Academy utilizing the Residential building prop. Live burn drills allow realistic training with real fire and smoke to contend with. Training with live fire allows us the opportunity to hone our fundamental firefighting skills and fine tune our tactics overall. Thank you to the MCFA staff for all of your efforts in making this drill a success.

Yesterday On 06/17/23 Just an hour before we were scheduled to begin our annual fire company installation dinner, duty called!

At approximately 3:39PM Kendall Park Volunteer Fire company along with our First alarm companies Monmouth Junction Volunteer fire department and Kingston Volunteer fire department were dispatched to a working structure fire on Stockton Rd. Chief 230 arrived, established command and was met with heavy fire and multiple small explosions on the Charlie side of the structure during his initial 360. KPVFC Engine 221 established a water supply using a forward lay and performed an exterior attack utilizing a 2 1/2” hose line on the Charlie side. Ladder 223 arrived shortly and was assigned to interior attack. Ladder 223 crew forced entry into the alpha side of the structure and performed an aggressive interior attack with a 1 3/4” hose line. The interior crew was joined by additional manpower from KVFD and MJVFD who helped extinguished the remaining fire, utilized hydraulic ventilation and began extensive overhaul that included extinguishing several smaller spot fires. While performing overhaul and spot fire extinguishment a short but intense storm passed through with high wind,lightning and hail which forced exterior crews to pause operations and seek shelter until the storm passed. Command was transferred to Kingston Chief 250 in effort to clear up KPVFC crews from the scene. We would like to thank our brothers and sisters in town for stepping in to take over the final overhaul and mop up operations so that our members could still enjoy the night with family and loved ones. The cause of the fire is under investigation by South Brunswick Township fire prevention. Thank you as well to the additional resources on scene, Kendall Park Volunteer First Aid Squad and South Brunswick Township Police Department. Great work by everyone involved. .park.first.aid

Another busy day of calls for KPVFC!

On 06/10/23 at approximately at 10:16am Kendall Park Volunteer Fire Company responded to an activated fire alarm at a residential group home in town. At 5:53pm KPVFC Ladder 223 was dispatched mutual aid into Franklin Park for report of a residential solar panel smoking. After clearing that assignment and refueling, Ladder 223 was dispatched to an additional mutual aid assignment for a working commercial structure fire. Ladder 223 set up on the Alpha side of the building for roof access and was prepared for master stream operations if necessary. Engine 222 responded with additional manpower. Engine 221 established a water supply and fed CVFC1’s Ladder 25 which was operating on the Charlie side of the building. All crews on scene worked together to extinguish the fire and prevent further building damage. Great work by all.

*KPVFC Training Highlight* Vehicle Extrication Practical. (With addition of 2 fire calls mid drill.)
On 06/05/23 KPVFC Members participated in our last rescue operations drill for the quarter. After working our way through fundamental skills in our last few drills this was an opportunity to put all of that knowledge into action. Some of the skills that were covered were battery isolation, basic vehicle stabilization, single door removals, and roof/windshield combination removal. Just as the drill began our members were faced with an unexpected but familiar challenge of not 1 but 2 calls for service. The line officers worked together to divide up our membership and effectively staff Ladder 223 for a mutual aid structure fire, Engine 222 for an activated fire alarm and a crew to continue our drill. Part of being a successful volunteer fire company is having the ability to adapt to the unknown challenges that arise and to make every effort to continue training even when things get busy. Special thanks to Firefighters Prem and Rick Ghooray for donating the vehicle for this drill.

On 06/05/2023 at approximately 7:10PM KPVFC Ladder 223 was dispatched into Franklin Township for a mutual aid assignment to a working structure fire. Ladder 223 Crew was assigned to roof ventilation but were quickly met with deteriorating roof conditions. Ladder 223 crew transitioned to master stream operations and worked with crews on scene to extinguish the fire. Mutual aid between neighboring towns is a crucial tool in the fire service and we are thankful to have a great working relationship with all of our mutual aid agencies.

At Approximately 5:41AM this morning Kendall Park Volunteer Fire Company was dispatched to a working structure fire at 73 Kingsley Rd. Multiple neighbors noticed heavy smoke coming from the home, promptly dialed 911 and were able to wake up and evacuate the family. Upon arrival SBPD officers confirmed that the residence had been evacuated while Chief 220 and Chief 230 were met with heavy smoke showing from the exterior of the residence in the area of the garage. Engine 222 crew established a water supply and made an aggressive interior attack. The initial attack crew were able to make an effective knock of the fire and prevented the fire from spreading through the entire house. Crews from Monmouth Junction Fire Department and Kingston fire department assisted with extinguishment and overhaul. Thankfully closed interior doors were able to significantly minimize fire and smoke damage to nearby rooms. It is always important to keep bedroom doors closed to protect yourself in the event of a fire in your home. South Brunswick Fire Prevention responded and is conducting an ongoing investigation into the cause of the fire. Also assisting on scene was Kendall Park First Aid Squad and South Brunswick EMS. This incident shows how important it is for everyone in our community to work as team to protect each other. The quick thinking actions of the neighbors and the effective strategy of our Township’s first responders all played a significant role in saving lives and property today. .park.first.aid

Training Highlight: KPVFC Hydraulic Rescue tool JENGA drill. This quarter our training focus is Rescue Company operations. Tonight’s drill was a twist on the classic board game Jenga. KPVFC members utilized hydraulic spreaders and the help of a partner to carefully manipulate cribbing blocks without knocking over the stack. We find this drill to be a great way to build confidence, and become familiar with carefully and safely controlling the extrication tools in a low stress environment. Our members worked as a team and learned about proper tool positioning, line management and communication.

05/12/2023

05/12/23 At approximately 1:21PM Kendall Park Volunteer Fire Company was dispatched to a working garbage truck fire at the corner of Henderson Rd/Route 1 South. While enroute Chief 220 immediately requested initial back up engine companies for water supply and additional man power. Garbage truck fires pose significant and unique hazards due to the unknown contents of the load as well as a large volume of combustible/flammable material inside. Kingston engine 245 arrived and began primary attack, followed by Monmouth Junction Engines 204 & 208 and Kendall Park Engine 221. This incident is a prime example of great team work between our in-town Mutual aid Fire Companies. Good team work and trust between the three fire companies in town results in reduced response times and safer incidents. Additional responding agencies were South Brunswick Police Department, South Brunswick Fire Prevention, South Brunswick EMS and Middlesex County Hazmat. Thank you to all of our mutual aid agencies for your assistance, we appreciate your hard work and dedication.

Earlier this month on 05/01/23 at approximately 6PM Kendall Park Volunteer Fire Company was dispatched to a working structure fire on Maine Street in Monmouth Mobile home park. KPVC was assisted by additional manpower from Monmouth Junction Fire Department and Kingston Fire Department.

Additional responding agencies were South Brunswick Police Department, Kendall Park Volunteer First Aid Squad, and South Brunswick Fire prevention. .park.first.aid

Training highlight

KPVFC received in depth training on our new FAST board from FAST rescue solutions. This unique tool provides safe and efficient options to rapidly package and move a downed firefighter or civilian when seconds count. Our fire company is often tasked with responding as the assigned RIT (Rapid intervention team) for several of our mutual aid fire companies in the area. A Rapid intervention team is a designated team that stands by on scene, ready to act in the event that a firefighter needs to be rescued. Thankfully it is not often that the RIT is required to take action, but when called upon, it is imperative that the RIT has the knowledge, skill and proper tools to accomplish the difficult task of rescuing a firefighter. At KPVFC we take our training seriously and are always looking to improve our skills. Big thank you to Chris and Matt from FAST rescue solutions for adding this invaluable tool and knowledge to our toolbox.
