Last Alarm Has Been Rung
It is with very heavy heart and deep regret the Woodbury Fire Department announces on December 5th the passing of one of their own. Noah Hunter who is the grandson of Auxiliary member Dawn Trieble and Honorary member Tom Trieble was called to heaven to soon. Noah who was born June 8th 2010, was born with many obstacles he would have to overcome during his lifespan. Noah who always had a smile on his face always brought joy to the members of the department. He was visited by Santa every year and was given his own fire helmet in hope one day he was able to use. The Woodbury Fire Department extends our deepest sympathy to the Hunter family: Jay (Father), Nicole (mother/daughter of Dawn and Tom), Lucy (sister) and Bianca (sister).

Very busy week for city firefighters, with 32 calls in the last week alone. While many of these incidents could warrant their own story, the most notable occurred in the early morning hours on Monday 11/21. At 0341 our station was alerted to the 700 block of Mehorter BLVD for a report of a dwelling with fire throughout. Chief 501 arrived with exposures to 2 additional dwellings and requested the 2nd alarm be struck. City firefighters brought a full district response with Engines 511 & 513, Ladder 516, Utilities 515 & 517, CAR-5, Chief 500, and FM-5. 37 mph winds with gusts up to 47 mph made the incident more complicated as live power lines were blown around on the fire-ground. Area brush trucks were used to patrol the neighborhood for embers. There were 7 victims transported by Gloucester County EMS to area hospitals. The fire and exposures were confined and extinguished with 3 ladder pipe master streams, 3 2-1/2 inch hand-lines, and 6 1-3/4 hand-lines in operation. We thank our area fire service community for their ongoing efforts to protect the lives and property of every citizen and for backing us in our times of need. We look forward to finishing out the year strong. More Info
