In Print: Blazes Kept the Garwood Fire Department Busy in Feb
February is typically known as the peak of fire season and it has lived up to its reputation as a time for Firefighters to stay busy and on the move. Earlier this month two pesky fires tested the Garwood Fire Department. On February 16th two garbage trucks at the Bush Brothers Disposal Company on South Avenue needed to be extinguished. The fire did not spread to any adjacent buildings and nobody was injured, according to published reports.
Earlier that week an electrical fire in the meat department at Garwood ShopRite forced the store to be evacuated and closed for a period of time. One employee was treated for a minor medical issue. ShopRite re-opened quickly after the minor incident.
The Garwood Fire Department was organized in 1903, and currently boasts a roster of 50 members, according to the town's website.
