Like the weather experts, we don’t know which way this storm is going to go either! It could be a little or it might be a lot!
One thing is for sure, we are here for you. The Westampton Township OEM is setup, the apparatus are all fueled up, the plows are ready to go, the kitchen is stocked up, and the crews are ready for when an emergency occurs.

As one of the country’s most popular holidays, St. Patrick’s Day has long celebrated the roots of millions of Americans with Irish ancestry. But all-too-often, the celebration can turn deadly because of impaired driving. This year, if you’ll be drinking alcohol, Westampton Twp Police Department has some advice for you: "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over!"
Our Officers will be on patrol this St. Patrick’s Day, so make sure you obey the law, don’t drink and drive, and don’t let your friends do it, either.
If you are hosting a St. Patrick’s Day party:
• • Remember, you can be held liable and prosecuted if someone you serve is involved in an impaired driving crash.
• • Make sure all guests designate a sober driver in advance or help arrange ride-sharing with other sober drivers.
• • Serve lots of food and include lots of non-alcoholic beverages at the party.
• • Keep the phone numbers for local cab companies handy, and take the keys away from anyone who is thinking of driving drunk.
If you are attending a St. Patrick’s Day party:
• • Designate a sober driver before the party begins and give that person your keys.
• • If you do not have a designated driver, ask a sober friend for a ride home, call a cab, sober friend or family member to pick you up or just stay where you are and sleep it off until you are sober.
• • Never let a friend leave your sight if you think they are about to drive drunk.
• • Always buckle up.
• • Pedestrians are at risk, too. If you are walking, keep an eye out for cars. Designated drivers: Be alert for impaired walkers who may not obey street signs. ... See MoreSee Less

This fire occurred in South Amboy, NJ this week. The last three pictures show the conditions that crews encountered when they arrived on location. The importance of this post, is to look at the first two pictures. The first picture is two bedrooms that had the doors open. The smoke, heat and fire destroyed the bedrooms. The second picture shows a bedroom that had the door closed. Though the fire finally got the best of the top portion of the door, it held long enough for the interior fire attack crew to extinguish the fire. The room is virtually untouched from any heat, smoke or fire damage.
This equates to precious time if you are stuck in your bedroom during a fire. Remember if your able to block the bottom portion of the door from allowing smoke into the room. ... See MoreSee Less
I didn’t know this
I would also think it would be worth it to invest in solid wood doors for the bedrooms instead of the cheap hollow wooden doors.
Uzoma Christopher Nwankwo- we should start closing our doors; Karen Albanese check this out.
Good info, thanks for sharing.

What is the recommended practice to the following question. When sleeping, you should sleep with your bedroom door? ... See MoreSee Less
MOST parents want them OPEN to hear the kids, but the safest n correct answer is closed
Click on the picture for your vote.
CLOSED because it will keep smoke out in case of a fire. Anyone who watches This Is Us would know that 🙂
Yes at all times when seconds count
I believe closed
Alllllways close it. Unfortunately, one of my cats is a smart ass and has learned how to open the doors and has decided she doesn’t like any of them closed!
Always closed in case of a fire/smoke.
The cat wants it open at my house. It’s just better if I do things the way he wants. Otherwise I can’t get any sleep.
The WTES would like to send our condolences to the Allen Family. Life member and former Fire Police Captain, Russ Allen passed away this week at home. Your family is in our thoughts and prayers through this difficult time. ... See MoreSee Less

Russ was a great guy he will be missed,R.I.P.

As everyone wakes up this morning and leaves their homes please be careful of patchy and black ice. Much of the snow that thawed yesterday refroze overnight causing many slippery conditions in the area. Please take your time driving and watch your step on sidewalks this morning. ...
