On Saturday March, 5 Department members partnered with the Lambertville Office of Emergency Management and the American Red Cross to promote the Home Fire Campaign. As a result canvassing teams visited homes and distributed an estimated 796 packets which included Tips on Fire Safety, Flood and Emergency Evacuation information and a Brochure explaining what joining the Lambertville Fire Department is all about. Of the homes visited, roughly 30 residents requested to participate in the program. After receiving consent, crews installed 89 new smoke detectors all free of charge. The agencies involved concluded that this event was successful and are proud to be able to say that a difference was made in our community today.
We still have a few homes that will be scheduling installations in the near future. If a representative was not able to stop by your house and you wish to be included in the program, please contact any member of the Department or leave a private message on our facebook page so we can schedule a time for a visit. In the near future we will also provide a link on our website which will become the permanent avenue for requesting home visits.

The Lambertville Fire Department would like to recognize Kevin Anderson from the Red Cross, Captain Justin Ege (LFD), Lambertville Mayor David Delvecchio as well as Lambertville OEM Director David Burd for their efforts in coordinating and planning this event. In addition, a big Thank You to all of the volunteers from the Red Cross and the Lambertville Fire Department who worked together to make this event the success that it was. Finally, we would like to thank Bruce Currie and Neice Lumber for donating the equipment needed for this campaign.
Great Job to all those involved.
