Liberty Corner Fire Company is Victorious in 42nd Annual Tri-County Firematics Competition June 16, 2014
On Saturday, June 14th, local area fire companies participated in the 42nd Annual Tri-County Firematics Competition hosted by the New Vernon Volunteer Fire Department. The annual competition is based on a series of simulated fire fighting activities. The goal is to successfully complete each activity, which consists of two hose events and one ladder event, in the least amount of time. Trophies are awarded for each of the three individual events and the team with the lowest time for all three events combined is declared the overall winner. In what proved to be a very exciting day, the Liberty Corner Fire Company placed second in the single hose event, first in the ladder event, first in the double hose event, and finished with the lowest combined time for all three events thereby taking home the first place trophy for the overall competition. The Bernardsville Fire Company placed first in the single hose event and second in the ladder event. The Basking Ridge Fire Company placed second in the double hose event. All three individual events were won by a margin of less than 2 seconds. Other fire companies participating in this year's firematics competition were Chatham Borough, Far Hills-Bedminster, Green Village, Martinsville, Peapack-Gladstone and Stirling. The Tri-County Firematics Association would like to thank this year’s sponsors - Fail Safe, Inc. provider of fire hose and ground ladder testing, Chatham Print & Design, provider of brochures, booklets and other printed materials, and EON (End of Night) Citrus Drinks.Read More...
Who We are
Comprised of 65 volunteers, the Liberty Corner Fire Company is responsible for providing fire and rescue service 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to the Liberty Corner section of Bernards Township. In fact, we have been providing volunteer fire and rescue service to the Liberty Corner community since 1910.
As you may know, Bernards Township is divided into two main sections - Liberty Corner (in the southern portion of the Township) and Basking Ridge (in the northern portion of the Township). Within the Liberty Corner section of the Bernards Twp, our fire and rescue service area is comprised of approximately 18 square miles (of the 26 square miles in Bernards Township) and over 6,500 residences and businesses. Therefore, if you live or work in the southern portion of Bernards Township, it is the Liberty Corner Fire Company that provides you with around the clock fire and rescue services.
In addition to protecting our community, the volunteers of the Liberty Corner Fire Company are responsible for raising the majority of funds used to satisfy the fire company's annual operating budget. Our volunteers work hard during the year to raise these necessary funds through our Annual Fund Drive mailing, our holiday gift delivery and other fund raising events we host each year. It is through the success of these fundraising efforts that we are able to provide the community with new and improved fire fighting and rescue equipment and our volunteer firefighters with the latest training in fire fighting and rescue techniques.
Please feel free to stop by and visit us at the firehouse located at 95 Church Street (just west of Liberty Corner School). Members can often be found at the firehouse on Monday nights(for training exercises) or late Sunday mornings (performing routine and preventive maintenance). Additionally, please join us when we host our various events throughout the year as listed on the left. These events provide a fun and exciting way for you to visit the firehouse and meet the volunteers dedicated to protecting you, your family, and our community.
We hope that you never need our services; however, if you do,rest assured that we will be there for you.
