LSFD was dispatched on a cover assignment to Tinton Falls Fire Co. No.1, as they were operating at the scene of a residential structure fire in their jurisdiction. Engine 23-75 responded with a crew of six firefighters to Station 36-1, and were moved up to the scene by Tinton Falls fire command to assist at the fire. Crews assisted with extinguishment and overhaul. LSFD crews operated at the scene for approximately two and half hours.
LSFD has acquired a new flood unit 5-ton military truck from the New Jersey State Forest Fire service. This is to replace our aging 1960s flood unit vehicle that is no longer operable. The vehicle will be equipped and painted red in the near future!

At 1:22PM LSFD was dispatched into Shrewsbury Borough for structure fire on Sycamore Ave, reported to be fully involved. Engine 23-77 and Rescue 23-86 responded in with a full compliment of firefighters, with the Chief on the scene. Crews arrived to find a large single family dwelling that was over 100 years old with heavy fire showing. Crews went to work right away attempting to make an aggressive interior attack but were forced out due to poor conditions inside. LSFD remained on scene until 8:20PM assisting our brothers from Shrewsbury. All of the fire departments on scene did a great job working together, and getting the job done safely. LSFD would like to commend Shrewsbury Fire Chief Peter Gibson, also an Ex-Chief from LSFD. Crews were faced with a dangerous situation, and because of the leadership, everyone went home safe!

Little Silver, as were many places in Monmouth County, was hit hard by Hurricane Sandy. Much of our town sustained flood damage from the Shrewsbury River's rising storm surge. Over 250 homes were affected with many families displaced. Firefighters staffed the firehouse for approximately 2 weeks responding to nearly 90 emergency incidents. Some of the incidents included 2 structure fires, water rescues, and many carbon monoxide incidents. Firefighters also responded to area municpalities to provide assistance.We would like to thank all the residents for your support throughout the storm from cooking to providing essentials for the crews as well as families that came from all over the country to donate items. We would also like to thank the Kingwood Fire Department from Hunterdon County for providing relief for our crews. We would also like to thank Mayor Neff and the Borough Council for your support. Lastly, thanks to all the members that helped protect lives and property in Little Silver.

The 2012 LSFD Fire prevention open house was a huge success this year, even with the rain. We had the best turn out from the public we have ever had, with over 100 people in attendance! Firefighters showed off the equipment, discussed fire prevention tips, demonstrated vehicle extrication, and had a BBQ for the guests. Thank you to everyone that came out to learn more about fire safety and support your volunteer firefighters.
