As part of the Hunterdon County Tanker Task Force, on February 13, 2016, Oldwick was called to assist in water supply operations at the Veterans Industrial Park, in Hillsborough N.J. The complex was built in 1940 as part of the Defense Logistics Agency Depot system. The fire was contained to two warehouses despite high wind conditions. High winds caused multiple brush fires in the area. Oldwick members operated the Oldwick, 2500 gallon capacity pumper-tender for a fourteen hour shift supplying several master streams, operating on the buildings perimeter. In addition to high wind conditions, operations were hampered by 14 degree temperatures which caused equipment strains due to ice in operating valving and other pump components.
