NJ 2-1-1 has been activated to help handle COVID-19 related calls from New Jersey residents.
All residents with questions or concerns about COVID-19 and resources available to them can dial 2-1-1.
Residents can also text NJCOVID to 898-211 to receive up-to-date information via text. To receive live text assistance, residents can text their ZIP code to 898-211.
Fire department and EMS personnel are instructed to maintain 6-foot 'social distance' from all contacts with the public unless a direct intervention and hands-on approach is required based on emergent or life-threatening circumstances. In this case, don't be alarmed if personnel put on various levels and types of personal protective equipment (PPE) to protect you and them. In many cases, they will ask you to put on a surgical mask that they will provide.
Personnel, from a 6-foot distance, will also ask all contacts with the public who called for 9-1-1 service the following questions before rendering aid (medical, smoke alarm help, investigations, public service assistance, etc.):
a. Are you or anyone in the residence/building/location under a self- or ordered-quarantine due to COVID-19/coronavirus?
b. Are you or anyone in the residence/building/location experiencing any symptoms of a respiratory infection (cough, runny nose, fever, sore throat, etc)?
After questions are answered, personnel will determine the level of PPE they will put on and proceed as the incident dictates. Again, don't be alarmed, it is to keep you and them safe in accordance with CDC guidelines. ... See MoreSee Less

Today the RTFD and the Robbinsville Professional Firefighters Association - IAFF Local 3786 provided a memorable experience for the first winner of our department trading card contest. 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 (video in comments). Madilyn was escorted to her classroom and was also awarded our first prize after collecting all of the trading cards.
While Madilyn is our first winner she won't be our last. You can be our next winner. The details of our card contest can be found in the comments section. ... See MoreSee Less
