Hurricane Irene

As hurricane Irene approached Tabernacle Township a plan was put in place and at 17:00 hours Station 439 members gather at the station in preparation to ride out the storm. Crews sat down to a dinner of spaghetti and meatballs which was prepared by our members. Shortly after dinner everyone was briefed on the events of the evening and what the plans were going to be. Shortly after 20:00 hours the station lost power. No long after loosing power a phone call was received from a local resident who was in need of transport to a local hospital due to the power outage. After checking weather reports and confirming it was safe to do so A4392 responded and transported the person to a local hospital. After returning from this assignment the everyone settled in for the night. In the early morning ours the crews awoke to find minor damage to the area and sat down to a nice breakfast of eggs, bacon, and french toast. In all only one call for service was received during the peak of the storm. At one point there was a total of 15 volunteers on hand ready to respond to calls for service. We would like to thank all of these dedicated volunteers who left ones and the comfort of home to provide coverage to all the residents of Tabernacle Township.
