On behalf of the entire membership of the Oldwick Fire Company, thank you Tewksbury for your support. We hope that all who were able to make it, took a break from the cold winter and had a good time. While the books haven’t closed, we did turn a profit, which will be used for equipment repair, maintenance and replacement as well as operational expenses. Many thanks to our tireless committee.
Join our community in coming together to support The Oldwick Volunteer Fire Company for an evening reception at the firehouse to dance the night away roaring twenties style!

All of the funds raised will directly support The Oldwick Volunteer Fire Company as they continue to keep our community safe.

It’s a myth that the concept was to benefit farmers as they were some of the most outspoken opponents of the law in the U.S., believing that it would disrupt their farming practices.
Today, it is also a good reminder to change batteries in life saving smoke detectors.
The fire extinguishers can become clogged or require excessive force to discharge and can fail to activate during a fire emergency. In addition, the nozzle can detach with enough force to pose an impact hazard.
