Dec 31st – The last day of the year brought Company 25 two fire calls. The first call (10:22 hrs) was a reported automatic fire alarm at 710 Eppley RD. Shortly after dispatch, Headquarters advised Chief 25 the alarm was a false trip. Chief 25 placed the box available.
At 18:24 hrs, Companies 25 and 33 were alerted to a reported field fire near the intersection of Williams Grove RD and Stoner RD. Fire Police Lt. Gene Woodward reported that he observed the fire on the way home and stomped it out. Chief 125 (Farrell) investigated and placed the box available at 18:37. That field fire was the last reported fire incident in Monroe Twp. in 2008.
In 2008, Monroe Fire Company responded to 243 calls for service. A complete year-end report will be published on the website at a later date.
Thank you all for your support in 2008!
