Member Spotlight: Jennifer Valichka
Swedesboro--Jennifer Valichka is a contributing member at the Woolwich Fire Company. Married to Chief David Valichka, she grew up in Hammonton where her grandfather was a volunteer firefighter for over 50 years and her grandmother was a member of the ladies auxiliary.
“As a young child I helped at the pancake breakfasts, volunteering at the firehouse when needed and selling raffle tickets,” she said. “It’s in my blood.”
As a contributing member at Woolwich, Valichka, 44, helps with fundraisers, such as the hoagie sales, Christmas tree sales and Easter plant sales.
“I’m always at events to help where I can,” Valichka said. She also helps administratively with her husband when it comes to the monthly reports, for example.
The people are what she likes best about her role at the fire company.
“I like the interaction with everyone, these men and women are my extended family,” said Valichka. “I also enjoy that there is always something I can be doing.” Additional contributing members are always needed and welcomed.
“It is a way to help the fire company without running into a burning building and continue to give back to my community,” said Valichka, who works in human resources. For more information or to volunteer go to www.woolwichfirefighter.org ... See MoreSee Less

While maintaining social distancing guidelines members are receiving their annual drivers recertifications training this evening. This lecture part tonight is just one of the steps our members do in the 3 step process. The second step is the hands on drivers cert course done by the instructor this Saturday. And the last step is the knowledge, operations, placement, limitations and uses of the fire department apparatus. These are the step we require our members to participate in during this recertification process in order to drive our department apparatus safely in our community.

Thank you, Steve for serving your community.
The fire company was sent to Lakeview Drive in Swedesboro for a service assignment. 2500 arrived on location and found neighborhood residents who were trying to rescue baby ducklings from the storm sewer system. Rescue 2518 responded with a crew of 5 and Lt. Zielinski. They pulled the covers from the drain and removed the baby ducks from the storm water drain. The ducks were put into a box and returned safely back to the mother who was waiting in one of the backyards on the lake. Great job by all those involved. ... See MoreSee Less
