Fall Back for Fire Safety
We are approaching the end of Daylight Savings Time. On Sunday, November 5, 2017 (Saturday night into Sunday morning) we ‘fall back’ one hour. Change the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Check the manufacture date on the back of your detectors and if they are more than 10 years old replace them. Detectors must be replaced after 10 years, as they become less effective and susceptible to failures and/or false alarms. ... See MoreSee Less

Make sure Halloween is not only fun but safe. Learn by taking simple precautions, like carrying glow sticks and being extra vigilant about using crosswalks (kids are more likely to be struck by a car on Halloween than any other day of the year). Also, use battery operated candles or glow sticks instead of real candles. ... See MoreSee Less

The RTFD is gaining much needed space with the addition of a 2,800 sf storage building behind the existing fire station. With no means to expand the existing 50+ year old fire station the storage building will assist in alleviating our current space issues within the main station. Currently some vehicles are parked within inches of each other and space is extremely limited. This Capital project is being completed thanks to the support of Robbinsville Township Administration and the generous donation of funds from the Washington Volunteer Firemen. ... See MoreSee Less
