New J e rs e y M a rin e U n its S u p p o rt FDNY M ile a M an B ik e Run MANHATTAN, NT' - On Sep­ tember 15th, fire and police marine units escorted FDNY Marine 1 (‘ Three Forty Three”) from lower Manhattan to a park in Elizabeth. Marine 1 was transporting partici­ pants of the FDNY 343 Mile a Man Bike Ride. The group's 10th annual run traveled from Montauk, N.Y., to Washington, D.C. Members raise money for wounded soldiers returning home from war who have sustained serious injuries in the line of duty. Since the ride started, over $1.2 million has been raised. The funding goes towards all terrain wheel chairs, service dogs, medical bills, housing and numerous other expenses. Marine units that provided the ‘ 343”with an escort were: NYPD Harbor, NJ State Police Marine Di­ vision, North Hudson Regional Fire & Rescue Marine 1, Carteret F.D., Bayonne F.D. and Port Reading F.D. Before the bikers left New Jer­ sey, they received a $500.00 dona­ tion from the New Jersey Deputy & Battalion Fire Chief's Association. After the park ceremony, Eliza­ beth EMT Andreea Wirkus and EMS Supervisor Jason Hamilton es­ corted the bicycle riders from their city to Toms River. - RON JEFFERS

CAPE MAY, NJ - Cape May firefighters were dispatched to the intersection of Beach Avenue and Decatur Street on Sep­ tember 13th for a reported motor vehicle accident. Deputy Chief Michael Eck and Engine 51 arrived at the scene and found a delivery truck that caught a guy-wire and caused a utility pole to snap. Damage to transformers triggered power outages to numerous businesses along Beach Drive. Fire­ fighters helped evacuate people from residences and busi­ nesses in the immediate area until the power lines were secured by Atlantic City Electric. Firefighters also responded to several alarm activations in the area due to this incident. Power was restored at approximately 10:00 P.M.

D e d ica te d F ire fig h te r R e tire s in W ood-R idge UPS & DOWNS Notes from Ron Jeffers

After 27-years of service in Wood-Ridge and the South Bergen mutual aid groups, Elizabeth Ferry has retired from the Fire Depart­ ment. Ferry joined the W-RFD in 1994 and has held virtually every form of office in the department. Ferry served as the Chief of Department in 2019, and she was the first fe­ male to hold that office in the 124year history of the Fire Department. In addition, she was also a captain with the EMS Emer­ gency Squad. Ex. Chief Ferry has played an in­ tegral part in the success of the Jun­ ior Firefighters Program. She also possessed active rolls in fit testing members, inspecting PPE and serv­ icing pagers and radios. Ex. Chief Ferry works full-time as a paramedic at University Hos­ pital in Newark.

DOWNS: Heavy fire and smoke was pouring out of the Dominican Softball Social Club, on State Street in Perth Amboy, when fire units ar­ rived, Sept. 2nd, officials said. Five residents of apartments above the club were treated for smoke inhala­ tion at a local hospital. An Ocean Grove resident was charged with arson, Middlesex County Prosecu­ tor Yolanda Ciccone announced. UPS: Some of the larger AFG funding awarded to New Jersey fire departments for “ operations and safety” include: Cherry Hill $301,768; Bayonne $213,077; Salem $163,844; Helmetta $156,190; Englewood $148,786; Passaic $142,650; Old Tappan $139,447; Gloucester City $116,488; Irvington $116,363. DOWNS: On Labor Day, seven fire companies were used to battle an early morning dwelling fire on Corson's Tavern Rd. in Ocean View, Dennis Twp., officials said. UPS: In September, members of Bloomfield Engine 2 were sent to Halcyon Park pond in reference to a cat that was trapped on a flotation device, in the middle of the pond, that was in place for ducks. The cat was using a Tupperware container for shelter that somehow made its was into the pond. Firefighter

RON JEFFERS Wood-Ridge ex Chief Elizabeth Ferry has retired after 27-years of service as a volunteer firefighter and emergency squad member.

Michael Elias entered the pond and safely removed the cat from danger, according to the public safety divi­ sion. DOWNS: A fire consumed a Chester Twp. dwelling on Lamerson Rd., Sept. 7th. The fire was being investigated by the Morris County Prosecutor's Office Arson Unit and the NJ State Fire Marshal's Office. UPS: For 20-years an American flag has flown at Gate 17 Terminal A, Newark Liberty International Airport, in honor of United Flight 93. Gate 17 is the gate Flight 93 de­ parted from on September 11, 2001. The flight was hijacked by terrorists and crashed in Shanksville, Pa. On September 10, 2021, the Port Au­ thority Police Department Newark Airport Command retired the flag during a ceremony prior to the gate being demolished for a rebuilding project. DOWNS: A malfunction in a fire pit set a dwelling's back deck ablaze on Susan Dr., in Chatham Town­ ship, Sept. 10th, officials said. The homeowner attempted to quell the flames, but did not succeed. Flames spread to the home, rendering it “ uninhabitable". UPS: During a 2-alarm fire in Egg Harbor Twp., Sept. 18th, an un­ conscious dog was found and re­ moved from the home, Bargaintown fire officials said. The Northfield VFC took the dog to a local animal hospital and it was said to be in sta­ ble condition. No other injuries were reported for the Irvins Ave. fire. DOWNS: A father and son died as the result of a fire in their 9th St. home in North Arlington, Sept. 17th. The wife of the 75-year-old father was rescued by ladder from a second-floor bedroom, officials said. The fire started in a secondfloor bedroom and the victims at­ tempted to put out the flames, but were unsuccessful. The fire was being investigated by the Bergen County Prosecutor's Office. UPS: The Coast Guard and Beach Haven firefighters rescued six boaters after their vessel struck a fixed aid to navigation in the vicinity of Ham Island, Sept. 19th., officials said. DOWNS: Due to a shortage of fire equipment in Atlantic City, the fire department has borrowed appa­ ratus from Ventnor and Margate to protect the city, according to the At­ lantic City Professional Firefighters Local 198. Approximately $1.2 mil­ lion was approved by the city to purchase needed equipment, ac­ cording to WPG radio. UPS: During a search at the Lakeview Terrace apartments, after carbon monoxide detectors sounded, Eatontown firefighters found a two-week-old infant uncon­ scious and unresponsive, on Sept. 13th. While paramedics were en route, firefighters and police teamed up to revive the infant and said the two-week old was in stable condition.

DOWNS: On Sept. 13th, a 2alarm fire displaced 24 residents of a 5-story apartment building on Lembeck Ave., Jersey City. UPS: On September 20th, the South Plainfield Borough Council and the S.P.F.D. recognized and awarded Firefighter Paul Bosse on his 50-years of service to the com­ munity. DOWNS: Newark firefighters were busy for most of September 22nd battling a fire in the EMR Re­ cycling yard on Calcutta St. Fire­ fighters sought the assistance from the yard's heavy equipment opera­ tors to move and spread out the heavy metals to make sure the flames would be completely extin­ guished, according to Public Safety

Director Brian O'Hara. To ensure an efficient water supply the Neptune System was called in. In addition, fire boats assisted at the scene from the FDNY, North Hudson, Kearny and Perth Amboy. UPS: Newly promoted fire cap­ tains in New Brunswick are Chris Gural and Robert Piparo. DOWNS: Flames engulfed a small Park Avenue dwelling in Eliz­ abeth, killing a 78-year-old resident, Sept. 21st. The victim, Damaryz Vazquez, was a celebrated ballerina in her native Cuba and built a life and a dance school in the city. UPS: New fire lieutenants in New Brunswick are Michael Pilch and Michael Blackwell.

Mayor Brian C. Wahler and the Piscataway Township Council congratulate The Arbor Hose Company on its 100th anniversary and thank its generations of volunteers for their bravery and dedication. H0Sf Cq

F o rg in g a C u ltu re o f S a fe ty VIDEO REVIEW Video reviews by John Malec.ky

Forging a Culture of Safety By Anthony Avillo Available from: FSP Books & Videos 433 Main Street Hudson, MA 01749-1330 1-800-522-8528 E-mail: support@firepolice.ems.com www.fire-police-ems.com Price: $95.00 (DVD) This is a classroom presenta­ tion given by a 28-year veteran of the fire service at the time, who is now retired. He was a deputy chief at the time o f an urban fire department that covered five mu­ nicipalities in Hudson County, New Jersey, the smallest but most congested county in the state and possibly the country. The class is made up of firefighters from the Heartland. Although these two ju ­ risdictions are not identical in fire load, demographics and hazards, etc., the knowledge presented is common and that is safety and

discipline on and off the fireground. The goal is to accomplish the mission with effective strate­ gies while keeping firefighters safe from injury and death. The disk is 115 minutes in length, but I can assure you that unless you are fatigued when you view it, you will not fall asleep. The content is presented in a down to earth manner supported by photos, videos and tables of statistics. The photos are both on the fire ground as well as pre-fire assessments o f structures and what hazards they can present. Personal safety is stressed and ex­ amples are shown on how fire­ fighters become their own enemies by lack o f discipline and laziness, as well as perhaps by a lack o f training. Self discipline is the primary requirement for offi­ cers to effectively lead their crews and work in unison with other re­ sponding companies. It starts at the station with rules and regula­ tions being stressed. As a fire­ fighter serves his or her time in their career, knowledge o f the job and the types o f construction in their jurisdiction benefits them to live to retire. This is a presentation that is highly recommended.

As many municipalities were winding up their 9/11 memorial programs, including Bayonne firefighters and city officials, local firefighters were dispatched to a fire that involved dwellings on West 18th Street. The fire went to 4-alarms with mutual aid units from Jersey City operating at the scene. Several firefighters were examined by EMTs on the warm afternoon.

Well, no matter how difficult the situation or how tumultuous the sea­ son may be, there’ s always some­ thing to be thankful for. This month our entire nation will celebrate Thanksgiving. Supermarkets will sell more turkeys in a single month than all the combined turkeys the whole year. Turkeys will be carved, dinners planned, drinks will be served, fam­ ily gathered together. The irony of it is that very little thanks to God dur­ ing Thanksgiving. We are so busy preparing, cooking, entertaining, watching football and eating, that about the only real thanks that gets done on Thanksgiving is done in a single prayer before the big meal. And it’ s usually done by one person. Truth be told, millions will miss the whole point and original intent of this holiday - to give thanks to God for what H e’ s done in our lives. The Bible tells us: "Everything has come from You and everything belongs to You" (1 Chronicles 29:16). It all starts with recognizing and affirming that God is the source of all good! Everything that we enjoy in life is a gift from God. Even when things don’ t seem to go our way God tells us to thank Him. In everything give thanks; for

this is the will o f God in Christ Jesus for you ”(1 Thessalonians 5:18). I want to emphasize the opening word in this scripture - “ IN”every­ thing. In the middle of your chal­ lenge, disappointment, discouragement, hardship, trial... give thanks to ‘ God. Why? Because there’ s always more in life to be thankful for, than to gripe about. In spite of any difficulty you may be experiencing, here’ s a list of things every Believer should thank God for. "I will not forget the glorious things God does for me. He forgives all my sins. He heals me. He ransoms me from hell. He surrounds me with love. He fills my life with good things. He is merciful and tender to those who don't deserve it (grace). He is slow to get angry. He never bears a grudge. He has not punished us as we de­ serve for our sins ”(Psalms 103:2-11 (LB) Just to name a few. So, when you carve that turkey, slice the pumpkin pie, watch the game, share good times with your family - remember to thank God IN everything. God has blessed us and “... is the giver o f all good things. ” Happy Thanksgiving Fernando Villicana Fire Service Chaplain

Jersey City officials gathered at the foot of Grand Street on the morning of September 11th to remember those lost as a result of the terrorism attacks on our country in 2001. This location, oppo­ site lower Manhattan, was a large triage site for those transported to Jersey City via boats, including FDNY Marine 1. The Freedom Tower now stands tall on the other side of the Hudson.

^STOPy

BA CK STO P TH E FULLY AUTOMATIC REVERSE BRAKING SYSTEM MINIMIZE DAMAGE TO SURROUNDING OBSTA CLES

BACKSTOP applies the brakes instantly and automatically when a reversing vehicle contacts an obstacle. C O S T SAVINGS

Installing BACKSTOP minimizes damage costs to both the installed vehicle and surrounding obstacles. May reduce insurance premiums. MINIMIZE VEHICLE DAMAGE

V e te ra n Owned

BACKSTOP projects beyond the rear of the vehicle, minimizing collision damage to doors, lights, and rear steps.

BACK STOP

MAXIMUM SAFETY

BACKSTOP’S instant and automatic braking system is much faster than a driver’s reaction time. The brakes remain applied until the driver manually releases the brakes by shifting the vehicle out of reverse gear.

IIHS: Rear Automated Emergency Braking Is Standout Safety Feature • Based on insurance claims for some vehicles, IIHS said rear AEB can reduce damage liability claims by 28 percent, while a backup camera or those beeping sensors reduce that by just 5 percent.

NEW RESCUE IN CHATHAM TOWNSHIP; KME TO MOVE In Morris County, the Chatham Township Volunteer Fire Department placed in service a new Sutphen heavy rescue truck. It replaces a 2001 Inter­ national 4900/E-ONE heavy rescue which I had always found attractive (and still do). A photo of the old and new trucks is on page 12 of the Sep­ tember issue under “Old & New". The new truck, equally attractive in my opinion, keeps the same major fire­ fighting components as the former unit, namely a 300-GPM pump, 300gallon water tank and 30-gallon foam tank. To be more specific, the truck has a Monarch chassis powered by a Cummins X12, 500 hp diesel engine (which combined provides more seat­ ing and probably a more powerful motor), a Hale APS-30-23 pump, UPF 300-gallon water tank, Foam Pro 2002 system, 30-gallon Class “B ” foam tank, 1 M-inch front bumper line, Ramsey four-ton winch, N orcold re­ frigerator, 20-foot non-walk-in body with rear access to the top, On Spot tire chains, Harrison 6-kw generator, Will Burt Night Scan and FRC light­ ing. The news about the REV Group re­ locating the KM E factory in Nesquehoning, Pennsylvania and Roanoke, Virginia, is recent and at this time there are few further details other than the brand will be built in other existing factories. There have been unofficial stories circulating beyond this, but until information becom es fact, we will mark time. In the photos besides the Chatham Township rescue are apparatus from Red Bank in Monmouth County and the City o f Orange (Essex County). From Red Bank are two oldies but goodies, namely Engine 94, a 2006 Seagrave Marauder and Tower 90, a 2000 American LaFrance Eagle mid­ mount platform. Their latest two ap­ paratus are twin Ferrara Cinder pumpers for Engines 96 and 93. From Orange we have Engine 4, a 2021 Fer­ rara Igniter quint and for Squad 1 a 2021 Ferrara Cider MVP rescue pumper. With these two additions, the City of Orange now has five Ferrara apparatus at their headquarters station. In dealer news, Fire & Safety Serv­ ices reports the follow ing Pierce de­ liveries: an Enforcer Heavy Duty Rescue Pumper to the Ocean View FC in Dennis Township (Cape May County) and a Saber pumper to Mor­ ristown (Morris County). It is Morris­ town’ s first Pierce unit. Pierce orders include an Impel pumper for Rockaway Township (Morris County), an Enforcer pumper for W oodland Park (Passaic County), an Enforcer 107foot Ascendant aerial for the Southard FRC in Howell Township (Monmouth County) and an Enforcer Heavy Duty Rescue Pumper for River Edge (Bergen County). VCI Emergency Vehicle Specialists reports the follow ing Horton ambu­ lance deliveries: in Burlington County, a 553 stock remount on a 2021 Ford E-450 chassis to the Lenola EM S StaPlease send any com m ents o r news tidbits you might have about A pparatus o f the M onth to us at 1st R espon d er News, 1 A rdm ore Street New Windsor, NY 12553.
