INCASE YOU NOTICED
- As several people have seen, the Gibbstown Fire Company is in the process of giving the station a much needed "face lift". From the removal of the shrubbery around the building, the painting of the red stripe and the future work to come we plan to keep YOUR station (the residents of Greenwich Township) a landmark in town that we all can take pride in. Although we are in the beginning stages of the make-over, we can promise you that it will soon again be a focal point of one of the greatest townships in the state. ... See MoreSee Less

CHIEF VEHICLES GET THERMAL IMAGING CAMERAS
- Chief Fisler and Deputy Chief Doak's command vehicles are now equipped with their very own thermal imaging cameras (TIC). These will allow for more effective size up while they are on location awaiting the arrival of the apparatus. The new TICs will be used from finding a fire in an exterior wall while performing a 360 to helping locate victims through a smoke filled environment. These are a great purchase for our department to help ensure the safety of our residents and the firefighters which is always our priority goal. ... See MoreSee Less
Ain't technology great...no more feeling walls or opening doors, not knowing what's behind them.

LARGE TURNOUT FOR EXTRICATION DRILL
- Tonight several members participated at a drill that simulated a motor vehicle crash with occupants entrapped. Unfortunately this type of incident seems to occur more frequently than anyone would think. Members worked under the instruction of Hurst sale representatives and company officers as they were taught new techniques in extrication. Special thank you to Riehl's Towing who set up the simulation and is always is a huge supporter of our organization and several other fire departments. ... See MoreSee Less

FIRE AT BURGER KING QUICKLY EXTINGUISHED!!!
- Station 21-1 was dispatched for a building fire at the Gibbstown Burger King today. Upon arrival 2111's crew gained access to the roof as Logan Township's Fire Chief went to the inside of the building. A fire was located in the kitchen area above the ceiling tiles and was rapidly spreading across the trusses for the building. Working as a team, just as the two agencies do in several combined drills per year, the crews quickly extinguished the fire with extinguishers and kept it from spreading. Paulsboro's Fire Chief began to give incoming orders as the fire was being brought under control and incident command was then transferred to Gibbstown's Deputy Chief Doak.
The cause of the fire is under investigation by the Gloucester County Fire Marshal's Office. Unfortunately Burger King will be closed for repairs until further notice.
Special thank you to Logan Township and Paulsboro Fire Departments for their assistance along with GCEMS and the Office of The Gloucester County Fire Marshal. ... See MoreSee Less
Great job! Sad for the workers tho.
Really good job. Maybe now Burger King will fix up and repair the place. It's so outdated and I'm poor shape. I hope the workers can be relocated to other chains. It's a sad situation.
