Taste of Warwick


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.

Warwick 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 facility.

A small portion of Warwick Township property taxes goes towards fire company operating expenses, such as training, fuel, and equipment costs.  We need your help - please support our Capital Campaign program and ensure the future of public safety in Warwick Township by making a donation today.  Capital Campaign donations are used to pay the financing of our construction.  Your donation helps save lives and your donation is tax deductible.  No donation is too small.

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.

NFPA Safety Tips

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.

Charcoal GrillCharcoal grills

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.

Gas GrillPropane grills

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:

  • Turn off the gas tank and grill.
  • If the leak stops, get the grill serviced by a professional before using it again.
  • If the leak does not stop, call the fire department.
If you smell gas while cooking, immediately get away from the grill and call the fire department. Do not attempt to move the grill.
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.
