2007

In 2007 the Chief's office, stairway, hallway, and elevator entrance way were remodeled, and a new sound system installed in hall.

In April of 2007 our area was hit with a nor-easter that drop 7 inches of rain in two days. We responded to seventy alarms in twenty-seven hours, most were water emergencies and rescues. We requested mutual aid from the county because the township companies were all busy. We received two pumpers one from Cheesequake FD(Old Bridge Township) and the Plainsboro FD on Sunday. Both of these departments were from the furthest edges of the county from us. A pumper from PineWald Pioneer FD (Ocean County) was sent to us on Monday. All of the Middlesex County fire departments were busy on Monday in their own towns so the county co-ordinators went to Ocean County for help because Ocean County was not hit that hard by the storm.

In August of 2007 the Fire Commissioners purchased Freddie the Fire Truck robot for the purpose of promoting fire prevention all year.

In November the floors in the two new bays and back room were done with a epoxy flooring and the four other bays were refurbished for a cost of twenty nine thousand five hundred dollars.

In November of 2007 the Fire Commissioners purchased a 2007 Wheeled Coach ambulance for the Colonia First Aid Squad. The cost of ambulance was one hundred eight thousand dollars.
