It was a privilege for the Trenton Fire Department Engine 8 crew to be invited and to perform the presentation: ‘Fire Safety for Seniors’ today. We enjoyed speaking with the different groups who joined us in their Community Room. Thank You Fire Director Kenneth Douglas for coming also and saying some words to our ‘Wiser’ residents along with our Engine Company #9 crew as well. We do many fire prevention events for the kids but We Can’t Forget our Seniors. They’ve Paved the Way for Many of Us…

Beverages were provided by Signal 22 Canteen Unit who is always helping out our first responders. And dessert was provided by BUZZETA festival foods. Thanks to all that helped make this a successful stop for the runners!

On the evening of September 1st and the early of morning September 2nd Trenton Fire Fighters faced high winds, torrential downpours, fast moving water and tornado warnings with touchdowns in the area. With what remained of Hurricane Ida hitting Mercer County, they collectively made 22 rescues of victims in swift moving water from ten vehicles. These rescues could not have been made without the bravery and dedication of the departments members and the leadership of that evening. After the rain and winds left the area, members of the department also faced a House fire on the 100 block of Genesee st.
