Truck Dedication & Wetdown

Truck Dedication & Wetdown

Posted by Austin Nigrelli, Firefighter on May 4th 2021

Saturday July 24th 2021 Freehold Township Independent Fire Company #1 will be hosting a Truck Dedication and Wet Down in celebration of our newest addition to our fleet.

Our Tower Ladder 16-1-90 will be celebrated in a classic wetdown celebration - A wetdown is a ritual celebrated by many volunteer fire departments in the United States in which squads of firefighters from neighboring towns ritualistically commission a new fire apparatus by anointing it with water sprayed from the visitors' firefighting equipment.

The event will start at 1pm at our District Firehouse (330 Stillwells Corner Road Freehold NJ 07728) There will be Music entertainment, 50/50 raffles, food and beverages, and a GOLD VIP tent on site.

Support the fundraiser for an official T-shirt, mug, and lawn sign! Lawn signs will be delivered to the firehouse and exhibited one week before the event. Supporters can then take home the signs for display after the dedication ceremony.

Limited supply of mugs will be sold at the event, so order now! T-shirts and signs only available through pre-sale.

Please order all items before June 21st:
