Christmas Tree Safety Tips
   Fire Kills Video

Each year, fire departments respond to an average of 210 structure fires caused by Christmas trees. Carefully decorating Christmas trees can help make your holidays safer. Picking the tree •If you have an artificial tree, be sure it is labeled, certified, or identified by the manufacturer as fire retardant. •Choose a tree with fresh, green needles that do not fall off when touched. Placing the tree •Before placing the tree in the stand, cut 1" - 2" from the base of the trunk. •Make sure the tree is at least three feet away from any heat source, like fireplaces, radiators, candles, heat vents or lights. •Make sure the tree is not blocking an exit. •Add water to the tree stand. Be sure to add water daily. Lighting the tree •Use lights that have the label of an independent testing laboratory. Some lights are only for indoor or outdoor use, but not both. •Replace any string of lights with worn or broken cords or loose bulb connections. Connect no more than three strands of mini string sets and a maximum of 50 bulbs for screw-in bulbs. Read manufacturer’s instructions for number of LED strands to connect. •Never use lit candles to decorate the tree. •Always turn off Christmas tree lights before leaving home or going to bed. After Christmas •Get rid of the tree when it begins dropping needles. Dried-out trees are a fire danger and should not be left in the home or garage, or placed outside against the home. Check with your local community to find a recycling program. Bring outdoor electrical lights inside after the holidays to prevent hazards and make them last longer.

Firefighters from Station 26 train every week. The past couple of weeks we have been training in RIT (Rapid Intervention Team.) This is one of the most hardest things firefighters will do. Its labor intensive and extremely emotional. This week we trained in the Denver Drill and breaking studded walls. Station 26 is the Rapid Intervention Team for Toms River Township, the Barrier Island from Island Beach State Park to Ocean Beach and Manitou Park section of Berkeley Township.

Press Release Toms River Fire Departments donate to Ocean of Love Toms River, NJ, October 23, 2014: Firefighters representing the six volunteer fire companies in Toms River individually raised funds and then pooled their money together to make one donation to Ocean of Love Billboard Radiothon. The fire trucks came into the Lowe’s parking lot with lights, sirens and Cash in Hand heading to the billboard fundraiser sponsored by the Hawk, radio station (105.7). Lt. C.J. Weinberger from Toms River Fire Company #2 coordinated the event and was the spokesperson for the group. Lt. Weinberger was interviewed by the radio station’s ground crew while the ladder truck from East Dover Fire Company #4 was positioned and the ladder was raised to the billboard. Firefighter Kyle Reid climbed the ladder and handed the donation of $ 2,050.00 to DJ Andy Chase, who was atop the billboard. This just another way the fire departments enjoy giving back to their community. The Toms River Fire Departments have been working with Ocean of Love for many years delivering food baskets to cancer victims’ families during the holiday seasons. I have attached a few pictures to the email. Thank you. For further information kindly contact CJ Weinberger; cweinberger@trfire.org or Sam Seaman, contact info above.
