LIVINGSTON, NJ - Hundreds of Livingston residents helped celebrate the start of Fire Prevention Week by attending the Livingston Fire Department’s annual Open House on Sunday, Oct. 6. This year’s theme was “Kitchen Fires.”

Families enjoyed free hot dogs and goodies while exploring fire trucks and the Saint Barnabas Burn Education Trailer. Guests also placed donations into a container earmarked for the Saint Barnabas Burn Foundation.

“We are very excited to share our Fire Prevention Week kickoff with the public,” said Fire Chief Christopher Mullin. “We do this each year and donate all of the proceeds to Saint Barnabas. It is our way of giving back to them for all of the great work that they do.”

The Livingston Volunteer Fire Department has been serving the Livingston community by protecting life and property since 1921. Under the leadership of a full-time fire chief and assistant chief, the department operates with a staff of more than 70 unpaid volunteer firefighters which includes three volunteer deputy chiefs. The members of the Livingston Volunteer Fire Department are on call twenty-four hours a day, 365 days a year, to provide fire protection and other emergency services to the citizens of Livingston.

The department is made up of three response stations, which are commonly known to the firefighters as Headquarters StationNorthfield Station, and the Circle Station. The fire houses are placed strategically throughout town to provide a quick response for responding firefighters to each part of the township.

The Fire Prevention Bureau of the Livingston Fire Department is responsible for inspecting all retail, commercial and institutional occupancies within the township and for inspecting all residential occupancies upon resale or re-occupancy of rental properties, for smoke/carbon monoxide detector compliance. In addition, fire inspectors routinely conduct fire safety education programs at local schools and for various civic organizations. To schedule a smoke detector/co detector inspection, call (973) 992-2373.

Honorees are nominated by respective departments and selected by a committee of peers.

In addition to the prestigious Valor Award, awards honoring Valor Honorable Mention, Team Effort, Humanitarian and Community Service are also celebrated and pay tribute to various community firefighters, police officers and civilians whose courageous acts of assistance have substantially changed the outcome of various emergency situations in the state of New Jersey. 

The Saint Barnabas Burn Foundation provides supportive services and counseling to burn victims and their families treated at The Burn Center at Saint Barnabas.  In addition, the Foundation’s educational programs teach burn awareness, prevention and fire safety to thousands of people of all backgrounds throughout the state of New Jersey.

Cluelessly Clueless

I teenaged my way through high school under the assumption that my parents had no idea what I was doing.  I like to think I was pretty good at withholding information and presenting situations in ways that were other than they really were.

 

Still, sometimes they found things out.  Like the time my friends plopped me on our front door step at one o'clock in the morning ...
