On Wednesday March 22 Engine 65-378 was requested to assist the Matawan Fire Department for a large decommissioned train trestle that was on fire which subsequently caused a WUI (Wildland Urban Interface) incident. Multiple houses were in jeopardy of being lost. Engine 65-378 was tasked with stretching a 500' attack line into the marsh area to attack the burning trestle. Members used portable ground ladders to create bridges over creeks to access the area. A combined effort between mutual aid companies that was overseen by 65-67 Chief Burkhardt led to a successful outcome. Captain Murray led 378's crew and worked hand in hand in with West Keansburg Fire Company and Eagle Hose Company of Keyport as well as Morganville, Cliffwood, Aberdeen Oakshades and Matawan Boro Fire Department. As always we value our relationships with our mutual aid companies and love working with all of our brothers and sisters in the Bayshore. 378's crew operated for nearly 4 hours before returning to service.

**Attention Residents and Followers**
Kidde a manufacturer of smoke and carbon monoxide alarms has issued a recall on their “TruSense” model of smoke and combination smoke/carbon monoxide alarms because they may fail to alert consumers to a fire.

Please click the link below to get specific information on the model numbers, how to identify the affected units and how to remedy the problem.

Never Forget!!

Box 3-3 2997
23 January 2005
Black Sunday

The Bronx fire started on the third floor of a tenement on East 178th Street off the Grand concourse, and may have been caused by an extension cord to a portable heater setting fire to a mattress. Three alarms were called: Engine Company 42, Ladder Company 33, Ladder Company 27, and Rescue Company 3 were involved in fighting the fire. The alarm call was made at 7:59 on a cold, windy morning the day after a blizzard, and snow hampered the engines in reaching the address; the closest hydrant was frozen, and some hoses were either frozen or cracked.
The apartments had been illegally subdivided using drywall partitions. Six firefighters on the fourth floor were trapped when the fire flashed through the door of the apartment, unable to find their way to the fire escape, and decided to jump from windows. Only two had an escape rope, which one of them had bought for himself. Two were killed in the fall: John G. Bellew and Lieutenant Curtis W. Meyran, who was in command of Ladder 27. The other four, Brendan Cawley, Jeff Cool, Joe DiBernardo, and Gene Stolowski, were severely injured and disabled and had to retire. DiBernardo died six years later he had been promoted to lieutenant in May 2005 and Bellew received a posthumous promotion.

You hear the multiple elevated voices of desperation and coordinated command chaos overtaking the scene before you finally hear, “A whole company just jumped in the rear,” followed by the eerie rapid count of the FDNY officer observing the carnage over the radio, “1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 have jumped in the rear; we need massive EMS here, massive injuries.”

The NIOSH report for the 178th street fire, released on Dec. 6, 2006, paints an all-too familiar picture of how the department could “minimize similar occurrences” in the future, notably:
* Review and follow existing standard operating procedures (SOPs)
* Ensure that mayday transmissions are prioritized
* Provide firefighters with the appropriate safety equipment

While developing and following SOPs are mentioned in four of the conclusions, probably the most troubling of conclusions was that the fire department needed to provide firefighters appropriate rescue equipment. You see, in 2000, the FDNY ceased the practice of issuing rescue ropes to firefighters because they were “too bulky.” And on Jan. 23, 2005, only two of the crew had ropes – one purchased on his own. Later in 2005, the FDNY once again began issuing rescue ropes to each firefighter.

Good morning Union Beach. We hope everyone made it through the storm relatively unscathed. Due to the widespread wind damage power is out to parts of Union Beach and all over the county and state. During times of extended power outages generator use increases and unfortunately so does generator related carbon monoxide incidents. With that being said we’d like to remind residents of the following tips for safe and proper usage of your generator, signs and symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning, and what to do if you suspect carbon monoxide poisoning.
