LAST ALARM HAS BEEN RUNG
RALPH N. DAY 68 YEARS OF ACTIVE SERVICE
It is with deep regret the Friendship Fire Company announces the passing of member Ralph N. Day. Ralph Day served the Friendship Fire Company with 68 dedicated and active years. He joined the Friendship Fire Company August of 1949 and till this day Ralph still attended the annual meetings and the annual banquets along with strolling up for his credit for fire calls. Ralph was as a career firefighter for the city working for 33 years before retiring in May 1986 and was a volunteer for 34 plus years serving under 13 of the 23 Chiefs in the department. The fondest memories the young members have of Ralph would be just listening to his stories of his past, and arguing with his longtime friend Jimmy Neal. Keeping a smile on the member’s faces is was Ralph did best. Ralph was at the largest fire recorded in Gloucester County being the Belbur Trunk Fire (now Woodbury Mews). Ralph is the oldest and the longest active member in the Friendship Fire Company till this day. The members of the Friendship Fire Company and the Woodbury Fire Department express our sympathy to his wife Peggy who has been by his side every step of the way and the rest of his family. Services will take place Tuesday April 18th 2017 at Budds Funeral Home on Salem Avenue Woodbury New Jersey. Viewing will begin at 9:30AM with service to follow at 12:00PM at the Funeral Home. Cemetery will be at the Eglington Cemetery in Clarksboro.

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.
