Fire Prevention Week is Oct. 6-12.  Pictured above are L. John Schuettler and Edmund “Buddy” Hamtil at the Union Fire Station bond drive in July 1955. (Photo and information is used with permission from the Union Township Historical Society.)

I’m looking for contributors with history or old pictures of Union or Middlesex county fire departments or first aid squads. Did you hang around the fire house in your old neighborhood as a kid? Send me what you remember.  Email me at or send copies of your material to me c/o CMD Media, 1139 East Jersey St., Suite 503, Elizabeth NJ, 07201
