There are numerous trees, poles, and wires that have fallen due to the weight of the snow. Stay inside, off the roads, and do not go near any wires as they could be live. Downed wires hidden under snow may also pose a hazard.
Give time for emergency services, public works, and the utility companies to do their jobs and make things safe for everyone. Staying off the roads will only expedite the process.
If you are without power and utilizing a generator please take note of the safety tips included and be safe. ... See MoreSee Less

The Robbinsville Township Fire Department recently received a donation of handmade quilts with stuffed animals for use in comforting children during emergency fire and EMS incidents. We are thankful for the thoughtful donation from Turtle Creek Quilters Guild. These items will be greatly appreciated by children and their families during difficult and often traumatic situations.
About Turtle Creek Quilters Guild and for those who may be interested and/or like to contribute:
Turtle Creek Quilters Guild has about 70 members from all over Central NJ who meet in Groveville, NJ. One of our goals is to donate quilts and other handmade items to people who may not ordinarily have access to them. We have donated quilts to nursing homes, foster children, cancer centers, and camps for children who have lost a family member. We have been making the quilts that go with the stuffed animals to police, fire and EMT departments so that they can be provided to children in need.

STAY OFF THE ICE!!!!
Below is a message from a resident regarding an incident that occurred today on the lake in Town Center. Advise your children and others to STAY OFF THE ICE. Residents are advised to stay off of frozen or partially frozen bodies of water at all times. Notification should be made by dialing 9-1-1 when witnessing anyone on an unmonitored ice covered body of water. Never attempt to rescue someone without professional assistance, as those with good intentions often end up as victims themselves.
While the RTFD is trained to rescue those in this situation and many other non-fire related situations, we ask that everyone use caution to prevent placing themselves and others in harms way. We will be conducting annual water/ice water training in the coming weeks and will share here how dangerous this can be even to those with proper training and equipment.
“I was walking around the lake on Lake Dr in Town Center this afternoon and saw a group of young kids running across the lake. A few minutes later I was happy to see that the police were there to scold the kids. They were lucky not to have fallen through the thin ice.
Parents, you need to pay more attention to what your kids are doing. This could have been devastating”. ... See MoreSee Less
Thanks for sharing Chief!
Skating should be allowed on the lake after tested for thickness. Anyone 50 or older grew up in a time when skating on lakes was part of winter. There were a lot less societal problems and respect for nature when people played outside. Yes there were a couple of drownings in NJ every winter but then again, there’re traffic fatalities driving in winter conditions to skating rinks and other indoor facilities. There’re also diseases caused by sedentary lifestyles.
Today the on duty personnel from the RTFD set up the bonfire for the New Year’s Eve Bonfire Bash. Thanks to Ken Pannone/Best Landscaping for the donation of firewood and everyone from Robbinsville Recreation for putting this event together. Come out tomorrow night from 8:30-9:30. Be sure to stay close to the fire. It’s going to be a cold one!

Today, the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program collected the toys from the fire station that were donated over the last month for children in need during the holiday season. We were proud of the overwhelming response from the community and thank everyone who donated in an effort to make the holiday season special for others. We can no longer accept any additional toys, as they will not be collected. If anyone still wishes to donate please reach out to a local charity in need. Again, thank you to all who donated. ...
