Captain Erik Eitel, Firefighter Ed Haemmerle, Firefighter Steven Schnaudt, and Firefighter Nick D’Alonzo were honored this evening with a Resolution by Robbinsville Township Council for their actions involving a motor vehicle/rescue incident on the New Jersey Turnpike during the early morning hours of March 11, 2018.
The incident involved freeing an entrapped driver from a vehicle that had left the roadway and fell in excess of 20 feet from a bridge into a creek bed below. The incident required a multitude of equipment, resources, and trained personnel that ultimately resulted in a positive outcome.
This incident is a representation of how important the proper investment in equipment, personnel, and training is and how those investments result in positive outcomes. The Fire Department is often tasked with complex emergencies outside the realm of traditional fire incidents. This is just a small representation of what fire department staff are tasked with daily.
We would like to thank the members of council for taking the time this evening to recognize these individuals. ... See MoreSee Less

Mercer County has recently formed a Rapid Response Partnership consisting of select Fire, EMS, and Police agencies from throughout Mercer County working together in an effort to become trained and prepared to respond to Active Shooter incidents. There has been a significant effort by those involved to form the partnership, obtain equipment through grant funding, and provide training to the involved agencies free of cost.
This is just one example of the expanding roles and responsibilities of the fire department of today. The RTFD responds and trains for all types of emergency incidents beyond fire suppression.
RTFD personnel along with numerous surrounding agencies completed the first TECC (Tactical Emergency Casualty Care) training sessions this week held at the fire station. This training instructs emergency response personnel how to respond to and care for patients in a civilian tactical environment (Active Shooter Environment). It is designed to decrease preventable deaths in a tactical situation. ... See MoreSee Less

Do you know what a Knox Box is? Did you know you can purchase a residential Knox Box for your home? The RTFD has permitted the use of the residential version of the Knox Box in Robbinsville Township.
Knox HomeBox single key vault provides homeowners with the same secure rapid access system that currently protects hundreds of thousands of government and commercial properties in over 13,500 fire jurisdictions across North America for over 40 years.
These boxes are completely secure and can only be accessed by the local fire department utilizing a special secured key.
