HONORING OUR PAST - SECURING OUR FUTURE
Dedicated to providing public safety services to the community, Warwick
Township Fire Company is constructing a new, modern fire station. This
$2.9 million project has been underway since early Spring 2012 and is expected
to be completed later this year or early 2013.
Our old fire
station was built in 1963 and was design to house two trucks. Over
the years, as our community grew, we needed to purchase more and larger
fire trucks. Our four trucks, an engine, a tanker, a rescue, and a
ladder truck were squeezed into the bays by stacking them - that is, two
trucks were parked behind the other two. This practice slowed
response for emergencies where the trucks parked in the back were
needed. Our new station has four bays at front, allowing each
truck to have its own bay and improving response time.
Township Fire Company members are all volunteers, men and women like you
who serve without pay. These volunteers are on call 24 hours a
day, seven days a week, ready to drop whatever they are doing to risk
their lives to protect your family, your business and your property.
During inclement weather like hurricanes and snow storms, our volunteers
stay at the station during the weather event to ensure a prompt response
to emergencies. These volunteers slept on the floor or chairs;
sometimes a few cots were available - our old station lacked facilities
for exercise, rest and over-night crews. With the support of our
community, our new fire station will have bunk rooms and an exercise

Fire in the grill, under hot dogs and burgers, is a welcome sight at the family
cookout. But fire anywhere else can make your summer kick-off barbecue memorable for
all the wrong reasons.
Facts & figures
- In 2005, gas and charcoal grills caused 3,400 structure fires and 4,900
outdoor fires in or on home properties, resulting in a combined direct property
loss of $137 million.
- Gas grills have a higher fire risk than charcoal grills; leaks and breaks
are the leading cause, accounting for two-fifths (41%) of the gas grill structure
and outdoor fires.
- Gas-fueled grills caused an estimated 2,800 home structure fires and 4,400
home outdoor fires in 2005.
- Charcoal grills have a higher risk than gas grills of death due to unvented
carbon monoxide; most of these deaths do not involve fire.
- Charcoal-fueled or other solid-fueled grills caused an estimated 600 home
structure fires and 500 home outdoor fires in 2005.
- Placing combustibles too close to heat is the leading cause for charcoal
grill home fires.
- Over one-third (35%) of all gas grill and charcoal grill home structure
fires begin on an exterior balcony or unenclosed porch.
- Flammable or combustible gas or liquid, including gas fuel, is the leading
item first ignited for home gas grill fires.
- Structural member or framing and exterior wall covering or finish, are the
leading items first ignited for home structure charcoal grill fires.

Equipment, Grills" report by John R. Hall, Jr., February 2008.
Propane and charcoal BBQ grills must only be used outdoors. If used indoors, or in
any enclosed spaces, such as tents, they pose both a fire hazard and the risk of
exposing occupants to toxic gases and potential asphyxiation.
Position the grill well away from siding, deck railings and out from under eaves
and overhanging branches.
Place the grill a safe distance from lawn games, play areas and foot traffic.
Keep children and pets away from the grill area: declare a three-foot "safe zone"
around the grill.
Put out several long-handled grilling tools to give the chef plenty of clearance
from heat and flames when flipping burgers.
Periodically remove grease or fat buildup in trays below grill so it cannot be
ignited by a hot grill.
Purchase the proper starter fluid and store the can out of reach of children, and
away from heat sources.
Never add charcoal starter fluid when coals or kindling have already been ignited,
and never use any flammable or combustible liquid other than charcoal starter fluid
to get the fire going.
Check the gas cylinder hose for leaks before using it for the first time each year.
A light soap and water solution applied to the hose will quickly reveal escaping
propane by releasing bubbles. If you determine your grill has a gas leak, by smell
or the soapy bubble test, and there is no flame:
If you smell gas while cooking, immediately get away from the grill and call the
fire department. Do not attempt to move the grill.
- Turn off the gas tank and grill.
- If the leak stops, get the grill serviced by a professional before using it
- If the leak does not stop, call the fire department.
All gas cylinders manufactured after April 2002 must have overfill protection devices (OPD). OPDs
shut off the flow of gas before capacity is reached, limiting the potential for release of propane gas if the cylinder
heats up. OPDs are easily identified by their triangular-shaped hand wheel.
Use only equipment with the label of a recognized testing laboratory. Follow the
manufacturers’ instructions on how to set up the grill and maintain it.
Never store propane gas cylinders in buildings or garages. If you store a gas grill
inside during the winter, disconnect the cylinder and leave it outside.
