Township Fire Companies respond to fire on Rolling Hill Road
At approximately 3:50 AM on Wednesday, February 22nd, Montgomery Township Volunteer Fire Company No. 2, along with Montgomery Vol. Fire Co No. 1, Rocky Hill Fire Department, Montgomery EMS and Montgomery Police, responded to a residence on Rolling Hill Road for a reported structure fire. County Dispatch received multiple calls from neighbors reporting a fire, prompting Chief 46 to call the first alarm while en route to the scene. Chief 46 and Deputy 46 arrived at the same time and reported heavy fire showing from the rear of the residence with fire through the roof. Engine 468 arrived shortly after to commence fire attack while the crew from Tower 46 went interior to perform a search for possible occupants. With Tower 46 in position in front of the dwelling, Engine 453 was able to secure a secondary water supply which allowed for crews to attack the fire from the bucket of Tower 46. Additional attack lines were stretched into and around the building, with crews gaining access through ground ladders due to the unstable nature of the building. There were no injuries reported and the scene was turned over to Montgomery Fire Prevention Bureau for investigation. On scene was also Hopewell Fire Department, Princeton Fire Department, Griggstown Fire Department, Hillsborough Fire Co. No 1 (Flagtown) and Hillsborough Fire Co. No. 3 (Woods Road).
Remembering Fire Police Sergeant Steve Weingart Jr.
It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Fire Police Sergeant Steve Weingart Jr., a thirty-five year veteran of the fire service the last ten of which were spent serving his community as a member of the Montgomery Township Volunteer Fire Company No. 2. Steve was an invaluable member of the Fire Company, a great friend, and had an infectious smile which he was rarely seen without. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him. Rest easy brother.

Montgomery Township Volunteer Fire Co No 2 is proud to introduce our new Engine 46-8.
Engine 8 is a 2019 Pierce Enforcer Custom Chassis. The cab seats 6 firefighters. It is equipped with vinyl seats and trim for easy cleaning and decontamination. Engine 8 sports a 2000GPM Waterous Pump with a 750 Gallon water tank. Engine 8 also has a Husky 3 Foam system with Class A Foam. The pumper body has traditional slam doors, allowing us to maximize the storage space on the compact body. Engine 8 has a low “city-style” hosebed, allowing firefighters to pull attack lines from the ground, without having to climb onto the truck. Engine 8 has two 1¾” preconnects off the rear, along with a 2½” pre connect, 3” dead lay, and a 5” dead lay. The engine also carriers extra attack line and short supply lines in a tray on the side of the pump panel. Engine 8 has Whelen Emergency and Scene Lights with a Wil-Burt LED Light tower. All of the scene lighting is LED, which allowed the truck to be ordered without a generator. Thousands of man-hours were put into the construction of this engine. The Truck Committee spent many long nights reviewing plans. Montgomery Twp Volunteer Fire Co No 2 would like to thank the many people who made this engine possible, Kevin Driscoll and the rest of the team at Fire and Safety Services. Danz Lettering for the striping and gold leaf lettering. Our members, who contributed many suggestions and helped with the process every step of the way. We would also like to thank the Board of Fire Commissioners in Fire District 2 and the residents of Montgomery Township, as without them, this engine would not have been possible to purchase.
