We are running behind due to emergency incidents and other factors. We will make it to all of the streets on the schedule.
There are many calls on your time during the holidays: gift wrapping, baking, decorating, visiting family and friends, cooking, watching holiday movies. Make it a priority to water your Christmas tree EVERY DAY! If you fail to water your tree the Robbinsville Township Fire Department will, and we don't think you want that. Be safe this season and water your tree! 💦🎄💦
New Jersey Office of Emergency Management
It's the Holiday Season! Think Safety!
The holiday season is in full swing, which means it’s time to talk about safety! Don’t forget to check the water level of your Christmas tree and unplug the lights every night before you go to bed. Watch this video to see what happens to a tree that is watered regularly and one that is not. The tree on the left has been watered regularly. The tree on the right has not. Every second counts!
Although Christmas tree fires are not common, when they do occur, they are more likely to be serious. Here are some additional safety tips from the National Fire Protection Association:
Picking the tree
• Choose a tree with fresh, green needles that do not fall off when touched.
Placing the tree
• Before placing the tree in the stand, cut 2" from the base of the trunk.
• Make sure the tree is at least three feet away from any heat source, like fireplaces, radiators, candles, heat vents or lights.
• Make sure the tree is not blocking an exit.
• Add water to the tree stand. Be sure to add water daily.
Lighting the tree
• Use lights that have the label of an independent testing laboratory. Some lights are only for indoor or outdoor use.
• Replace any string of lights with worn or broken cords or loose bulb connections. Read manufacturer's instructions for number of light strands to connect.
• Never use lit candles to decorate the tree.
• Always turn off Christmas tree lights before leaving home or going to bed.
• Get rid of the tree after Christmas. Dried-out trees are a fire danger and should not be left in the home or garage, or placed outside against the home. Check with your local community to find a recycling program. Bring outdoor electrical lights inside after the holidays to prevent hazards and make them last longer.

We have nearly 4,300 followers on this page. Please share and spread this story and find Boomer a home for Christmas. For nearly 5 years he has gone without a home and we hope this is the year that ends. If anyone is currently looking for a great dog or knows someone who is please share this with them. We had the pleasure of working with Boomer and would like to make this a success story.This guy breaks my heart. He's been in rescue over 4 years and just wants his forever home. He's super smart, very energetic and would love a walking partner or someone with a major league frisbee tossing arm. He's big enough he might knock over little ones...but he loves to give them kisses! He's been on his own so long he'd do best as the only pet, so he can soak up all the love he's missed. Contact our friends AFEW Animal Friends for Education and Welfare to learn more about him and bring him home for Christmas! Our thanks again to the team at the Robbinsville Township Fire Department for hosting Boomer and giving him a fun and attention filled day. ... See MoreSee Less
I think he'd make a great firehouse mascot. ;)
Keep him as a firehouse pet...lol
He is beautiful! I hope he finds his fur-ever home ❤️
Yesterday, 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. ...

A little bit about Molly Sugg and her project. Thank you for visiting today.
**My name is Molly Sugg and I am excited to announce a wonderful project I am working on called Letters of Thanks.
My family has been involved in fire departments and first aid squads for many years. Currently, my dad, grandfather, uncle and aunt are all active duty volunteer firefighters or first responders. Over the years, I have watched the amount of time and effort it takes to respond to emergencies that most people would run from. I never want a firefighter or first aid responder to go a day without knowing how grateful their communities are that they are there to help us at a minutes notice. That is why I am working on this project.
I am collecting Letters of Thanks to firefighters written by teachers, children, teens, moms, dads, grandparents, aunts, uncles, even dogs (if they are VERY talented). After collecting the letters, I will drop them off at surrounding community fire stations. Young children can draw pictures if they wish!
Thank you in advance for helping me say thank you to these very special and important people!**Robbinsville Fire Department receiving Letters of Thanks today. Thank you for your service! ... See MoreSee Less
