MONTVILLE, NJ – State Senator Joseph Pennacchio was at the Nov. 28 Montville Township Committee meeting to honor 26 township volunteer firefighters with a combined service record of more than 1128 years.

Each firefighter received joint legislative resolutions plaques from the state, detailing their volunteer positions within each fire department and thanking them for their service as firefighters.

“Over my 20 years of being a public servant, I’ve dedicated bridges and roads, but what really pleases me is coming and honoring those who dedicate themselves to public service and to making Montville Township just a little better place to live in,” Pennacchio told the assembly. “Firefighters do this for the sense of duty to the community that they live in. What you also don’t see is the countless hours [they spend] away from their families. Firefighters on call may have to skip that weekend at the shore because they can’t be too far away.

“For all those reasons, not just because I’m a legislator but also because I live in Montville, I’d like to say thank you on behalf of the state and on behalf of my family who you protect and on behalf of my friends and neighbors. God bless you,” Pennacchio concluded.
