CPR Save for the Woodbury Fire Department (Story Updated)
On January 19, 2017 the Woodbury Fire Department was dispatched to Lafayette Avenue for a Cardiac Arrest. Engine 511 responded immediately (Brent Stanley, Joshua Gartner, Randy Ballinger), once on location the three guys took over the CPR Progress as the medics were giving appropriate medications needed. Members combined did CPR for about 15 minutes and were able to obtain a pulse back from the patient. The crew then assisted on the immediate packaging and removal of the patient. The patient was transferred to Inspira and still had a pulse when transferred to the care of the hospital. On February 14th, 2017 the three members were invited to the City Council Meeting to receive recognition for the duties performed on that day. The members would like to thank the support from the Chief and the other members who were there on this night.

Crews Battle House Fire in the City
At Approx. 4:30PM on February 8 2017 station 5-1 was dispatched to a reported dwelling fire on the 500 block of Lafayette Avenue in the City of Woodbury. 501 and 516 responded immediately with a report of multiple calls saying house is on fire. 501 arrived with smoke showing and immediately filling the box bringing in additional companies. 516 crew stretched 1 3/4 hand line into the front door of the dwelling, made it to the rear of the dwelling where they were met with heavy fire. Assisted on the hand line were members from the Mantua Fire Department. Station 13-1 Wenonah secured a water supply from the hydrant at the corner of Mantua Ave while 926 Tacoma set the ladder up at Division A (Front of the dwelling). Station 6-1 (Thorofare), worked on ladder operations cutting a ventilation hole in the roof. The Fire was placed under control at the half hour mark. All occupants were out of the house and there were no injuries on scene. The fire is being investigated by the Woodbury Fire Marshals Office.

Friendship Fire Co. Holds Their Annual Banquet
On January 27 2017, the members of Friendship Fire Company took the night off and held the annual banquet. The banquet is a time to honor the past and present firefighters of the City with a meal, drinks, laughs and awards. Throughout the night members trade stories on the past year of what went on and a video was made up by Justin Gartner and Brent Stanley to show the events and our fire calls. This night is special because it gives the younger firemen a chance to talk to the retired firemen and learn a lot from each other. Also awards were given and out new members were presented with their plaques to show their acceptance into the company. The company also invites some special guest to the banquet which included The Mayor of Woodbury Jessica Floyd, Chief of Thorofare Brian Golle, Chief of Mantua Brian Hauss, Chief of Colonial Manor Fred Lock, Chief of Wenonah Drew Sole, Assistant Chief of Woodbury Heights Edgar Siebert and Bill Neely for Rhiels Towing. We like to thank Thorofare Fire Company and the Tacoma Fire Company fire covering the city so members could enjoy the night, companies did end up running one Motor Vehicle Crash during the time period.
Dwelling Fire West Deptford Verga Section (Crew assumed role of first in Engine)
At 1129 hours this morning Engine Company 511 was alerted to the 1200 block of Hessian AVE in the Verga section of West Deptford for a dwelling fire with a report of people trapped. 511 responded immediately with four personnel and arrived minutes later along with Ladder 626 (Verga Fire Company). 511's crew assumed first due engine responsibilities, stretching attack lines through the dwelling into an attached garage where the room and car on fire were confined and contained. One civilian was transported to an area hospital by GCEMS. Numerous area fire companies also responded to the scene. The fire is under investigation by the West Deptford Fire Marshal's office.
Reminder to the Citizens of Woodbury
The Fire Department would like to remind all citizens in the City of Woodbury to keep storage clear of heaters in the winter months. If anybody is using space heaters make sure they are in the middle of the rooms, turned off when leaving the house and turned off when going to sleep, these can be very dangerous. Please do not use your stove as a heater to heat your house, the possibility of the stove malfunctioning or CO building up in the house without you knowing it can be deadly. In the event of a snow storm, if you have a hydrant on your property or near your property, please shovel a good space around it for the firemen to clearly see it in case it is needed. One last reminder, if you have elderly neighbors please keep a close eye on them during these type of temperatures. As always the members thank you for your help in advance.
