Neptune Firefighters remain busy as a cold February comes to a close

IMG_3231aUnexcelled Firefighters continue to be incredibly busy, responding to multiple emergencies in Neptune and in neighboring towns.

On Tuesday, February 25, Neptune Fire Department’s down company was dispatched to seven emergencies in 9 hours.  This included responding to two 2-Alarm fires – one in the City of Long Branch and two hours later in the City of Asbury Park.

January was no better, with firefighters handling 70 emergencies.  Cold temperatures certainly have played a part in the increased call totals.
