Washington, DC) – Congressman Jeff Van Drew announces the award of the Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) competitive Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER) Grant Program totaling $6,104,877.00 to fire stations in New Jersey’s Second Congressional District. The award will be split between three fire departments throughout the district in South Jersey.
The Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER) Grants was created to provide funding directly to fire departments and volunteer firefighter interest organizations to help them increase the number of trained, “front line” firefighters available in their communities. The goal of SAFER is to enhance the local fire departments’ abilities to comply with staffing, response and operational standards established by the NFPA.
“Our firefighters are our lifesavers. They are brave, essential, heroic parts of our community,” said Congressman Jeff Van Drew. “I am very pleased that these awards are coming to South Jersey as they transition to saved lives. I am proud of our firefighters every day, and I look forward to seeing the direct benefits of these awards on our community.”
“The Atlantic City Fire Department is very excited to receive the SAFER Grant award. This will increase safety and save lives for Atlantic City residents,” said Chief Scott Evans of Atlantic City Fire Department.
Today’s funding announcement includes $294,725.00 to the Woolwich Fire Company in Swedesboro, New Jersey, $1,467,000.00 to the City of Pleasantville, and $4,343,152.50 to the City of Atlantic City for hiring, recruitment, and retention of firefighters. ... See MoreSee Less
Awesome! How many employees does that cover?
Great stuff WFC!!!
Long time coming. Great Job!
That is great news!!
All good news. However, these towns need to budget properly to maintain this staffing level when the grant is over. Let’s hope they all do so.
Congrats 25-1 !
Time for a new 2516 pierce and a 2511 pierce quick attack engine!
Congratulations Woolwich Fire Company. Hard work and Dedication has it’s rewards
Outstanding - Woolwich/swedesboro 👍
👍🏾 Congrats Woolwich Fire!!!!

Where do I apply at?
Vincent Gregorio does this mean Woolwich will have paid now?
Goes to show that DEMOCRATS in Congress get stuff done
PSA! **** ATTENTION ****
The smell in the area is NOT A CHEMICAL LEAK!!
The odor in the air around the community is from the pepper plant on Woodstown rd. They were processing Hot peppers the last few days. The waste from the peppers are off gassing from there waste pit. With no wind in the air the pepper fumes are settling in the area of Swedesboro southern end and Center square rd area of town.
We have answered a lot of calls on this to our residents this evening. The owners of the facility are working on correcting the issue.
And notification was made to the emergency management office.
Please be patience as they are working on correcting the problem and mitigate the smell and irritation in the air around the area. ... See MoreSee Less
Good Morning Everyone! I would like to confirm the pungent odor was, in fact, hot peppers. Cherry peppers used in hoagie spread to be specific. Usually we only process one trailer every few days, Saturday we had 2 loads, and the waste (seeds, stems core) was in an trailer all day Sunday. We had no idea that the spicy odor would carry that far. We have since disposed of it, and will have it removed immediately from now on. You will also be happy to know, this is our LAST YEAR of processing hot peppers. Thank you for bearing with us. We dont like it either.
It's terrible! I work right across the street from it (like 30 feet) and it's like a mace bomb went off out the back door!
Still smells terrible. What are the local laws governing the chemical output?
I couldn't breathe. It smells every year but this year I was blinded by the air. Holy shit. It was beyond anything I've ever experienced there.
It’s party of living in a agricultural community.
They have been stinking up the air ever since they started in business. Can the Environmental Committee charge fines? We can smell them in Pieltown.
It smells like that every year around this time. It doesn’t last that long. It is better than living near a asphalt plant.
This happens every year people
Charlie Phillips when I read this I thought of Dude and him cooking peppers at the campground 😂🤣
Grasso’s always smelled like that 😂Better then the cow farms that are now long gone Victoria Chiuccarello Uhl remember holding our noses on the bus 😷
Alexa Blythe I told u I smell peppers every time I come to ur house 😂😂😂😂😂

Elizabeth Kafka Bier you were right! 🌶 🌶 🌶
Hey everyone ,you live in a "Farming" community. If you find the smells of what you eat offensive , then move to Philly or North Jersey. The last of my familie's farm which is Beckett was just demolished. I will miss those smells ,when this area becomes overcrowded. The smell of produce to me is like the smell of a fine perfume. Woolwich and logan land is almost gone. Next you will complain about the traffic.and other things
It’s a farming community people So it smells for a bit If you don’t like it, go back to the city Geez
