Today we responded with Oldwick Fire Company to a mulch fire in Tewksbury. Due to the size of the mulch pile Tewksbury Public Works responded with a front end loader to spread the mulch for extinguishment.

Congratulations to our member Christian Leach on his graduation from the Morris County Police Academy. Christian is an officer with Mount Olive Police department, we are confident that he will have an amazing career with them.

From one of our members:

“It’s spring cleaning day in our house! We are on bag #5 headed to the donation shed.”

Our donation shed helps fund the activities and equipment of the fire company.

We accept clothing, shoes, belts, purses, bedding, drapes, and stuffed ...animals.
