HFC members stood by at the Horse Park of New Jersey for the international Jersey Fresh event. This is a major event and is a pre-qualifier for the Olympics. Crews are requested to standby to assist in the event that there is an incident with a downed rider and/or horse, particularly if an extrication is required if a fence is involved. We had the pleasure of working with the Massachusetts SPCA equine ambulance crew, whom conducted training that we had attended earlier in the year. During our pre-planning the night before the event, some of the international judges were pleased to have the opportunity to look at 8281.

The Station 82 crew spent the day in Tabernacle, NJ at a training session taught by Roger Lauze from the Massachusetts SPCA. The MSPCA's equine emergency response and rescue has much experience and provides equine ambulance services at large events across the nation, including the Jersey Fresh competition held locally at the Horse Park of New Jersey. The crew today had the privilege of working with Roger, many veterinarians, vet students, horse owners, and Tabernacle Rescue members, to work through several scenarios in which a horse had to be rescued. We offer a special thank you to local resident Lisa Minshull for sponsoring three of our firefighters to attend this training- your support means a lot to us, and it is awesome response to our common plea of "help us help you".

If you have fire hydrants near your home or business, please keep "your" fire hydrants in mind when you are clearing out your walks and driveways. In the event of a fire, we'll need quick access to the fire hydrants for water, and if they are buried, there will be a delay in getting water as we locate and dig out the hydrants. Please be proactive and keep them visible and fully accessible! Thank you!
