On Friday, July 10, 2015, at 7:00 PM, the Bernardsville Fire Company will be participating at the Art in the Ballpark fundraiser at the TD Bank Ballpark in Bridgewater, NJ, home of the Somerset Patriots. The Patriots face off against the Long Island Ducks. Also, this is the first game following the Independence Day Holiday and will consist of an awesome fireworks display after the game. Fire Company members will be operating a Dip-n-Dots station and selling 50/50 tickets. Please see the article that was recently published in the Bernardsville News and show support by purchasing tickets to this event. Some of the ticket proceeds, as well as the Dip-n-Dots sales, will go toward the Bernardsville Fire Company. You can locate the Bernardsville News article by clicking this LINK.
Today, members of the Bernardsville Fire Company will be competing in Tri-County Firematics. This competition comprises of three events (two hose events and one ladder). There are 10 teams from various fire companies in the Somerset Hills area who participate in the annual event. Nine teams compete and one team hosts. This year, the host team is the Stirling Fire Company. Please come to the Stirling Firehouse (321 Somerset Street, Stirling, NJ) and support the Bernardsville Fire Company team! The competition begins at 11:00 AM.

This weekend, we honor all those brave men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice in the service of our great Nation.
Please be safe in whatever you are doing and celebrating this weekend and take some time to reflect on the sacrifices of all those who have served in the United States Armed Forces.
Finally, please join the Bernardsville Fire Company & First Aid Squad and the community in honoring all those who have fallen in the service of our Nation, especially those from Bernardsville.
The annual Memorial Day parade begins on Monday, May 25 at 10:30 AM and processes through the center of town to Borough Hall for services and remembrance. Following the Borough services is a short service at the firehouse to honor all the past members of the Bernardsville Fire Company & First Aid Squad who have gone before us.
When was the last time you thanked a firefighter for keeping you safe?
Monday, May 4th is International Firefighters’ Day and the Leary Firefighters Foundation needs your help to thank firefighters around the world for their service and bravery. LFF is launching a social media campaign on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram with the hashtags #BraveEveryDay #IFFD and #SelflessSelfie to raise awareness and show appreciation for firefighters. Here’s how you can help:
2. On Monday, May 4, follow LFF’s social media posts or visit www.learyfirefighters.org to:
· Post a Selfless Selfie to social media (a photo of you and a firefighter – give him or her a hug, a high five, whatever!) or share a cool graphic from LFF’s website.
· Use the hashtags #BraveEveryDay #IFFD and #SelflessSelfie in your posts to let everyone know you support firefighters.
· Know a firefighter? Tag him or her in your posts and let them know you’re grateful for all that they do.
3. Share this email with your friends TODAY and encourage them to get on board! Spread the word to help the LFF build a movement – May 4, 2015 is just the start.
Every day firefighters run into burning buildings while the rest of us run out. On Monday, May 4, we thank those who are #BraveEveryDay. Please join me!

The Bernardsville Fire Company experienced a very active Easter weekend with two brush fires and a fire at the Bernardsville Quarry, which was in a trailer and exterior equipment, with minimal extension into the barn/garage. Great save by those who responded. Many thanks to our mutual aid companies, Far Hills-Bedminster Fire Company, Liberty Corner Fire Company, and Bernards Township EMS for their assistance. Please visit our Facebook page for more information.
