Busy Month
Updated On: May 28, 2010


October of 2009 is proving to be a busy month for Robbinsville’s bravest. 
Three major incidents have occurred in the first two weeks of the month.

October 3, 2009 – Firefighters from Robbinsville Division of Fire “A” shift responded mutual aid to a working house fire in Hamilton Township on Banbury Road.  Robbinsville firefighters assisted Hamilton with fire attack and overhaul.  The one story residence was heavily damaged by the fire.  For additional information on this incident see: http://www.nj.com/news/times/regional/index.ssf?/base/news-18/1254548762307850.xml&coll=5

October 10, 2009 – Firefighters from the “D” shift responded to a major motor vehicle accident on the New Jersey Turnpike in Robbinsville at milepost 62.3 Southbound just before 3 A.M. in the morning.  Robbinsville firefighters arrived on scene to find a vehicle overturned in the center lane of the roadway.  The driver of the vehicle had struck a flat bed tow truck parked on the shoulder assisting a disabled motorist.  The impact caused the southbound vehicle to overturn and the driver was ejected from his car.  Attempts to resuscitate the driver at the scene were unsuccessful and the fatal accident is under investigation by the NJ State Police.  Fire personnel assigned to the ambulance did transport the driver of the tow truck to the hospital for evaluation.  The engine company remained for some time to assist with scene lighting.  Robbinsville firefighters would like to remind you that you are 25 times more likely to be killed if you are ejected from a rollover accident than if you are seat belted and remain in your vehicle during a similar crash.

October 13, 2009 – Firefighters from Robbinsville Division of Fire “D” Shift were dispatched to a report of a house fire on Olivia Road in Robbinsville Township in the late evening hours.  Firefighters assigned to Engine 40 and Ambulance 40 arrived on scene to find a very large single family dwelling with heavy fire conditions in the first floor and basement at the rear of the house.  Firefighters immediately stretched a 2 ½ inch attack line for an offensive attack.  Firefighters were able to knock down a bulk of the fire before running low on water.  The fire is located in a non-hydrant area of the township.  Two volunteers from Robbinsville arrived with a second engine and were able to supply the attack crew with the additional water needed for final extinguishment.  Robbinsville was assisted at the scene by career members of Monroe IAFF Local 3170, Hamilton FMBA Local 84 and volunteers from Hightstown, East Windsor and Upper Freehold.  The quick response of on-duty professional firefighters as well as an aggressive offensive attack is credited with saving the large home from almost certain destruction under alternative circumstances.  The Fire is under investigation by the Robbinsville Fire Marshal and Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office.  Robbinsville Police assisted with traffic.
