As part of its kickoff activities for the new year, the Basking Ridge Fire Company is looking forward to its 110th year as an all-volunteer fire and emergency services organization with a list of community-focused activities.  

Based on our local residents’ response, these community events have proven to be very popular and a great way for everyone to familiarize with the many facets of community volunteer service.

Coming up in May, the Company will station its fire and ambulance apparatus in the center of town at Henry St and Finley Avenue at the Bernards Township Annual Charter Day on Saturday, May 17.  

A Paper Shredding Day to help manage your sensitive documents is scheduled for May 10.

On Sunday June 8, the ever-popular Pancake Breakfast will be held to satisfy the appetites of young and old with all-you-can-eat breakfast favorites!

During the Fall football season, don’t forget to stop by the Hospitality Shack at Mountain Park for coffee, donuts, hot dogs, meatball heroes, bagels & cream cheese and assorted beverages.  Everything is fresh and ready for the game!

Paper Shredding will again be available on Saturday September 20.  

The Annual Beefsteak Dinner and a new Fall Flea Market at the Washington Avenue station are also being explored to find available dates on the Basking Ridge community calendar.  

The Fire Company is also investigating interest in a Fish and Chips dinner, and possibly a Pig Roast – please be sure to let them know your preferences!

When you visit the Basking Ridge Fire Station at 30 Washington Avenue, please be sure to check out the 3D graphics on the brand new sign designed and built by Gary Johnson, proprietor of the Great American Sign Company of Lewis St.  The creative approach and fine quality workmanship will serve the Fire Company for many years to come.  (www.greatamericansign.net )

The Basking Ridge Fire Company is a 100% volunteer emergency fire and rescue services organization comprised of local residents and neighbors who care enough to give back to the Township.  We’re always looking for those who want to “pay it forward” locally in diverse roles such as Auxiliary Member, Fire Police, Fire Fighter, Emergency Medical Technician and more.

What will it take for you to wake up.............stop and say no to your children it is not not alright to allow them to consume at your homes. It is not allowed. Why are you so afraid to say no. Children must have consequences to learn what is not acceptable behavior. Athletes, really all for what what, where will they end up????anyone else would be punished ,stop pampering them and let them grow into MEN. Yes MEN . Eighteen years I have watched and listened in this town and it has gotten so completely out of control. The children are running the homes. Stop being afraid of your own children. Remember you are the parent and you were given your children by the grace of God. Parent them and love them but they must learn right from wrong. Isn't that how you were raises??????
