Woolwich Fire Company congratulate recent graduates from fire academy

At the June business meeting, the fire company congratulated three new graduates of Firefighter I course at the Gloucester County Fire Academy. They are Drew Aaron, Matt Aaron and John Nastasi.

Firefighter I is the first required training for a volunteer. This course is a 152 hour training course that begins the firefighting training techniques. During this period, the member can respond to fires and drills but is considered a “probationary” firefighter and can only enter fires at certain phases and with senior members of the fire company.

The Company is proud to add these members to the active protection of our communities. Well done!

On June 10, members of the Woolwich Fire Company, Woolwich Police Department, Department of Public Works, Warriors Watch, Township and County officials escorted the newly acquired World Trade Center artifact, a 4000-lb beam. The beam will be the centerpiece of the new Memorial Garden to be built near the municipal building. The Garden will be dedicated on Patriot Day, this coming September 11th. This acquisition is the result of the year long effort by Woolwich Fire Company Deputy Chief Dave Valichka and Mayor Sam Maccarone. The Mayor thanked the Fire Company for initiating the project and the many who helped make this day possible.

Her carbon monoxide detector sounded while she was baking a turkey in her oven. Upon arrival, it was determined that carbon monoxide was present in her kitchen. The residence was vented and the gas company was called to fix the problem. Her detector prevented a potentially serious problem. Check your detectors and make sure they are all in working order.

The 1st Annual Woolwich Christmas Parade, held on Sunday, December 7, was a huge success. Many local organizations participated, walking and riding from Gov. Charles C Stratton School, along Center Square Road, unto Auburn Avenue, down High Hill Road, into High Hill Park, and ending in Locke Avenue Park. The weather cooperated, although it was a chilly evening. However, a large number of residents still lined the parade route. Based upon the enthusiastic crowd, the Annual Christmas Parade should become a new tradition for Woolwich Township residents.
