As fireworks are often an integral part of our Fourth of July celebrations, it is important to remember that they can be just as dangerous as they are mesmerizi...ng. Here are some safety tips to stay ahead of the game this holiday weekend:
- Obey all local laws and understand the cautionary labels and descriptions before igniting.
- A responsible, SOBER adult should supervise firework activities and fireworks should be used outside and away from buildings and vehicles
- Only light one firework at a time, away from dry grass or hanging trees, and never relight a “dud.”
-Pour water over fireworks and ensure they are completely burnt out and cooled before putting them in a trash container or bag.
Stay safe and have a wonderful Independence Day!

Companies were summoned to Route 206 and Skonesis Trail today for a motor vehicle crash with entrapment. Chief 1710 arrived on scene and confirmed the report with one driver trapped. Rescue Engine 1711 arrived and went in service removing both driver side doors and post to extricate the patient. They were assisted by Rescue Engine 1911 (Good Will Fire Company) who had just returned from assignments all morning in Pemberton Township. Hampton Lakes Vol Fire Co units arrived and assisted with traffic control at 206/38 and the landing zone standby. BLS units from Hampton Lakes Emergency Squad and America Emergency Squad provided patient transport to local hospitals. All units cleared within the hour. #vincentfire171
