TOMS RIVER – The Toms River Bureau of Fire Prevention has added a new Fire Investigation and Fire Prevention vehicle, known as vehicle 147.
The new vehicle was re-lettered and put into service just a few weeks ago and has already been used for three structure fires to conduct origin and cause investigations. The Bureau plans to use the vehicle also for public education and fire prevention details throughout the township as needed.
Formally known as Silverton VFD 2904, vehicle 147 is a Ford F-550. It is equipped with a small rescue body, roof mounted light tower, generator, scene lighting, and other fire investigation tools.
The Bureau thanked the Toms River Board of Fire Commissioners Districts 1 and 2, the Silverton Volunteer Fire Department, and the township residents for their support.
