Golf Outing

In 1995, the Roebling Volunteer Fire Company #3 began a very successful community golf outing. In 2006, the Florence Township Fire Company #1 and Florence Township Police Officers Association (F.O.P. Lodge #210) combined to continue the tradition. Each year over 150 people support and enjoy the tournament.

 

 

 Through the generosity of golfers and sponsors, we were able to establish the Richard Yurcisin Florence Township Emergency Services Award. This $500 award is given each year to two graduates of Florence Township Memorial High School who will continue their education in some type of community service profession.

 

 

 This year, the golf outing is scheduled for August 16th at Hanover Golf Club with a new starting time of 12:00 pm.

 

 

 Please click on the more information for information on advertising and golfing in this tournament. A $50.00 donation for a small custom made sign ($100.00 for larger custom made sign) or golfing in the tournament will

 greatly assist us to continue the scholarship program.

 

 

 "THANK YOU" for your support over the past years. With your help, we are looking forward to making our 20th year the best one yet!

Florence/Westampton FF Receives an Award

 

On May 15, 2014 member Keith Fisher was recognized at the 2014 PROCOPS annual award dinner. FF Fisher was recognized for his life saving efforts in 2013. While on his way home from work, he observed a serious motor vehicle accident on High Street in Burlington City where a vehicle had struck and entered a building. FF Fisher along with another civilian entered the building and saw that the driver was unconscious and not breathing. Fisher and the civilian began to remove the driver when a police officer arrived. They were able to remove the driver from the vehicle and building. While the police officer was performing CPR on the driver, Fisher and his partner re-entered the building and began assessing and treating the passenger.

 

The selfless and quick actions by Fisher and others involved were recognized by the Burlington City Police Department and Burlington County Prosecutors Office.

 

FF Fisher was very active with the Florence Township Fire Department for many years prior to moving, when he became active with the Westampton Twp. Emergency Services.

 

Congratulations to Keith and all of the recipients of the 2014 PROCOPS  awards.
