Finderne/North Branch take trophies at Bridgewater Fireman's Inspection
On Oct. 6, Bridgewater Township held its annual Fireman’s Inspection. The judges—who are mutual aid chiefs from Whitehouse, Hillsborough, Somerville and Bound Brook—judged the six Bridgewater fire companies on firefighters in uniform and fire apparatus.
The inspection, which was hosted by Finderne Fire Company, was held at the Bridgewater/Somerville Elks and was attended by Mayor Dan Hayes.
After an invocation and the reading of the fireman’s prayer by Ex-Chief Allen Kurdyla, of Finderne, the more than 100 firefighters were treated to a hearty meal followed by the awards ceremony for best appearing apparatus and best appearing uniformed firefighters.
Finderne Fire Company was the winner of the apparatus and North Branch won for uniformed firefighters.
The citizens of Bridgewater are well served by this dedicated crew of selfless volunteers.
