WESTVILLE FIRE DEPARTMENT
Bittersweet for Westville This morning was a bittersweet day, November 29th. Members spent the better part of Sunday morning stripping down Ladder Company 736 as she will be heading off to her new home with the Willow Grove Fire Company in Salem County this afternoon. She was sold in preparation for our new aerial which, is currently finishing up production. Ladder Co. 736, a 1991 E-One has served us exceptionally well, taking us to many fires over the years. She will be missed, however we are looking forward to the new truckâ€™s arrival.
