Madilyn, who was the first winner of the fire department trading card contest, stopped by the firehouse with a gift to show her support for the firefighters today. We would like to thank her for the thoughtful gift.
In March the RTFD and the Robbinsville Professional Firefighters Association - IAFF Local 3786 provided a memorable experience when Madilyn and her mom Alisha were picked up at home and given a ride in a fire engine to Sharon Elementary School by our on duty firefighters. Madilyn was escorted to her classroom and was also awarded our first prize after collecting all of our department trading cards.
While Madilyn was the first winner of our trading card contest, she won't be our last. Once the restrictions surrounding COVID are relaxed to the appropriate degree we will continue the contest. ... See MoreSee Less

Never stop learning
Another NJTP incident occurred this morning in the area of Exit 7A. There were no injuries and the vehicle was extinguished quickly.
We see the comments asking “why are there so many vehicle fires and accidents on the Turnpike” amongst other similar questions. The basic answer to this question is simply vehicle volume. The greater amount of vehicles traveling through an area the greater chances of a fire or other emergency occurring. Traffic density and other factors all play a roll.
The NJTP is one of the busiest limited access highways in the United States. It is a major artery in the Northeast that allows for not only the movement of people but large volumes of goods.

Glad no one was hurt but really think 7 needs to be saged or something.
Glad to hear he finally found a home!Wow wow wow! Learned earlier today that this handsome fella - Boomer - was just adopted after searching for his forever home for nearly SIX YEARS! So many people involved to make this happen - especially his special volunteer Nicole who spent so many of her weekends with him for years. My thanks to the Robbinsville Township Fire Department for allowing us to visit in 2018 and spend an afternoon romping through the house and with the staff and some equipment. Absolutely thrilled to hear about this and that this wonderful boy found his forever people. ... See MoreSee Less

Over the last several months department personnel consisting of Captain Palmer and Firefighters Iglesias, Engle, and Bassano rebuilt our bailout training prop originally constructed by retired Captain Erik Eitel. After serving many years the original prop was in need of replacement. All department staff carry a personal safety system that is designed to allow firefighters quick and rapid means of escape from an untenable situation.
Below is an article and video regarding Black Sunday. Two FDNY firefighters were killed and four others were seriously injured when they were forced to jump from a fourth story window of a burning building without the benefit of a safety system. This tragedy is a major factor in why we, and many other departments, have these systems today and why we continue to train with them.

Recently a few department personnel were presented with a Life Saving ribbon for an incident that involved a patient who experienced sudden cardiac arrest while at home. The patient had no pulse and was not breathing upon arrival. Fire department staff arrived and assisted with CPR and other life saving measures. The patient regained a pulse after intervention and was discharged from the hospital several days later.
This incident demonstrates the extensive training/abilities of our personnel and resulted in the best possible outcome for a Robbinsville resident. ... See MoreSee Less
