NMAA Wildland Urban Interface Drill November 3, 2014
On Sunday, November 2 the Northern Mutual Aid Association (NMAA), comprised of fire and first aid companies from the northern portion of Somerset County and the southern portion of Morris County, conducted a training exercise focusing on Wildland/Urban Interface (WUI).
The exercise was an opportunity for emergency services personnel to test preparedness and operational strategies/tactics as they relate to the threats of WUI. The exercise also served to assist multiple agencies with coordinating WUI efforts to achieve the common goals of life safety and property conservation through protection from and suppression of fire. Emphasis was placed on unified command, communications, accountability, wildland fire suppression, structural fire protection/suppression, water supply, tender water shuttle, EMS, and Office of Emergency Management (OEM) operations. 17 agencies participated in the exercise including 34 pieces of apparatus and 160 Emergency Services Personnel. The exercise took place in two locations, the rear of the Dewey Meadows Shopping Center off King George Road in Bernards Township, and the rear of the Center 78 office complex off Liberty Corner Road in Warren Township.
Participating agencies included Liberty Corner Fire and First Aid, Warren Fire and First Aid, Basking Ridge Fire, Bernardsville Fire and First Aid, Chester Fire, Far Hills-Bedminster Fire and First Aid, Millington Fire, New Jersey State Forest Fire, Peapack-Gladstone Fire, Pottersville Fire, Stirling Fire, Bernards OEM, Warren OEM, Bedminster OEM, Bernardsville OEM, Peapack-Gladstone OEM, and Somerset County OEM and Fire Coordinators.
The NMAA would like to thank the property owners at Dewey Meadows and Center 78 for allowing us to conduct this training exercise on their property, Somerset County for use of the County Mobile Command Post and all the Emergency Service Personnel for the time and effort they dedicated to this important exercise.
Liberty Corner Fire Company
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.
