Training with East Franklin


On Sunday, November 30, 2014 the Highland Park Volunteer Fire Department had an opportunity to attend & train with the East Franklin Fire Department & Bound Brook Fire Department during a Live Burn Training at the Hunterdon County Emergency Services Training Center.


East Franklin is a frequent Mutual Aid call for HPVFD and the opportunity to train together helped build camaraderie while also observing tactics & team deployment.


Firefighters participated in four different scenarios and had a chance to work primary attack hoselines, backup hoselines, search & rescue and ventilation.

We are thankful to East Franklin for the invite & opportunity to train – it was a great day!

Visiting School During Fire Prevention Week 2014


Sparky was the big hit again as Highland Park Volunteer Fire Department visiting schools for Fire Prevention Week 2014. The theme of Fire Prevention week is “Working Smoke Alarms Save Lives” and that message was delivered to students & staff.  HPVFD Firefighters discussed smoke alarms, testing the alarms, what to do if an emergency occurs, displayed firefighter gear and how we put on our gear, displayed engines & equipment and brought Sparky along for hugs & high-fives.

Thank you to all the school, the teachers and staff who helped and put on gear and all the students for their enthusiasm & response.


Reminder – Come Meet Sparky at our Open House!
