You know something that we don’t??

Everyone is at risk for the dangers of extreme heat, but these groups are more vulnerable than most. Ensure that your loved ones, neighbors and friends are safe from the heat this summer.

🛑Protect Yourself🛑

Avoid heavy exertion, extreme heat, sun exposure, and high humidity when possible. When these cannot be avoided, take the following preventative steps:
• Monitor your physical condition and that of your coworkers for signs or symptoms of heat illnesses.
• Wear light-colored, loose-fitting, breathable clothing such as cotton.
• Avoid non-breathable synthetic clothing.
• Gradually build up to heavy work.
- Schedule heavy work during the coolest parts of day.
• Take more breaks when doing heavier work, and in high heat and humidity.
• Take breaks in the shade or a cool area.
• Drink water frequently. Drink enough water that you never become thirsty.
• Be aware that protective clothing or personal protective equipment may increase the risk of heat-related illnesses.

History of the Florence Twp Fire Dept

In April 1912, a pharmacist by the name of Henry O. Adams used his spare First motorized engine for Florence Township Fire Departmenttime to gather signatures from the townspeople of Florence in order to start an organized volunteer fire company. Mr. Adams’ efforts paid off and a charter was created and the Florence Fire Company No. 1 was born.

The Florence Township Fire Department operates 2 command vehicles, 2 Engines, 1 Tower Ladder, 1 Rescue Truck, 1 3000 Gallon Tanker, 2 State Certified Ambulances, 1 Boat for Delaware River Operations, 1 Fire Police Vehicle, and 3 support vehicles.

We cover an area of approximately 10.18 square miles, along with areas on the NJ Turnpike, Interstate 295 and State Highway 130. We provide Fire suppression, prevention and investigation along with EMS and Rescue services to 14,000 residents and an estimated 50,000 per day transient population using our interstates and highways.
