Bordering the City of New Brunswick in the southeast corner of Somerset County, East Franklin, Station 27, responds to a small but densely populated 3.5 square mile area with approximately 30,000 residents. Our mission is to respond in a safe manner to all reported emergencies in the community of Franklin Township, Somerset, N.J. to help the citizens deal with natural and man-made emergencies, and with the resources available and with the utmost regard for the safety of the members of the department, work to the best of it’s abilities to limit the loss of life, the environment, and property.
The East Franklin Township Volunteer Fire Department officially began operations on July 29, 1929, but it had its beginnings much earlier in the minds of a group of men determined to provide better fire protection for the West New Brunswick area of New Jersey. The department began with 12 members; men like Joseph Godrey and Louis Katko Sr. All of the original 12 members are gone now but they are not forgotten for what they did for their neighbors and community.

At 11:14 hours Sunday night, District 3 was toned out to the 600 block of Hamilton Street for a structure fire. Car 27 arrived and reported a working fire in a one story commercial store front, attached to a 2 1/2 story residential.
A first alarm was transmitted upon arrival. Car 25 arrived and took operations. Engine 253 arrived first due and the crew stretched a 200’ 2” attack line and forced entry to the store front. The crew quickly encountered heavy fire in the front of the building, and was quickly able to knock it down. Ladder 27 arrived second due and assisted with searches. Ladder 25 went to work opening up the store front, Squad 27 arrived and laid in a supply line to Engine 253, and stretched a second line to the front door. Rescue 25 arrived and the crew checked the exposure, finding no extension. Additional units on scene were Car 272, Car274, Car 25, Engine 27 and Air 27.
Thank you to Somerset Fire & Rescue Co. No. 1 for their RIC team, Middlebush Volunteer Fire Department - Station 44, Bound Brook Fire Department for covering the District and City of New Brunswick Fire Department and North Brunswick Volunteer Fire Company 3 for covering from their Stations.
