As I was heading down the street to grab lunch this afternoon, something caught my eye. There was a Manitou Park Fire Company truck parked outside of the Toms River Fire Co #1 firehouse on Robbins Street.

I thought it was pretty sharp looking.

Which made me think - back in the fall we showed our love for Ocean County's police vehicles (which, you may remember, Tuckerton won), so why not give our fire departments a chance to show off, too?

So let's do just that!

We're going to do this exactly the same way as we did with the police vehicles:

  • Fill out the form below to send in a picture of your favorite local fire vehicle. It doesn't have to be a fire truck; it can be the chief's car, a specialized piece of equipment for water rescue, forest fire fighting, etc, we want to see them all!
  • We'll continue to take submissions throughout the voting period, which will start this week.
  • We'll run the voting for at least a full week, and a winner will be named at the end of February.
  • We'll do exactly what we did for the police vehicle poll, and head out to the winning department to present them with a certificate in person!

So get started right now! If you're a firefighter, if you have friends or family who are, or if you just want to show your pride for your township, send those photos in and we'll get the competition going!
