EFFECTIVE MARCH 11, 2020 AND UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

The firehouses located at 10 Halsey Reed Road and 130 Applegarth Road are closed to the public. We must implement these measures in order to keep our first responders from unnecessary exposure. Operations will continue, but facilities are now restricted to emergency personnel only.

For any residents or real estate agents in need of a compliance certificate for smoke/co detectors and fire extinguishers, the fire official has approved the use of a temporary self inspection protocol from March 16, 2020 through June 15, 2020 and has waived all fees.  The form must be completed, notarized, and emailed to fireofficial@station57.org  Please be sure you have the correct fire district. This is the form you will use at closing, as no certificates will be issued. 

On or after June 16, 2020 the bureau of fire prevention will resume normal inspection procedures.  Please download and complete this form if your closing is scheduled after this date.  Detailed instructions can be found here. Should you have any questions, please call 609-395-6830.

All scheduled in-person meetings are canceled. The district will utilize virtual meetings whenever necessary. Monthly meetings are open to the public and will be hosted via the platform Zoom. The next public meeting will be held virtually at 7pm on June 10, 2020. 

 

We understand that during this national crisis, orders and directives given by local and state officials can be frustrating and feel very restrictive, but they are for the greater good. Some temporary inconveniences now can potentially save us from overloading our healthcare system. Please do your part and be sure to follow the stay at home order issued by Governor Murphy.

Monroe has seen some tough days recently. The only certainty right now is that there will be more challenges to face ahead before things get better. Schools will remain closed for the remainder of the academic year, birthdays will be missed, and holidays may be held virtually. All of these things can take a toll on our spirit, but we will remain united and get through this together. Please know that we have the best and most highly trained emergency responders ready and willing to protect us all.

Sending LOVE from the District!

J. Martin, Commissioner
