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 00:45 hrs this morning, we were requested to stand by for a second alarm for the City of New Brunswick at Eng 5 Qtrs. Soon after being dispatched, we were upgraded to respond to the scene. Car 27, Eng 27 & Utility 27 responded to 165 Livingston Avenue. Crews were split up to do searches and to assist with suppression on the fire floor. While searching the fire, building crews were forcing doors since this was a boarding home with many people living in it. While completing a primary search, Chief 27 forced doors on the first floor and found a victim in a bed who was carried out by a crew from New Brunswick to an awaiting EMS unit. Crews operated on scene for 3 1/2 hrs before being released by Command and returning to Station 27. Great job by everyone on scene working to contain the fire.
