Cultural Care AuPairs from the towns of Whippany, MOrristown, Morris Plains, Randolph and East Hanover met at the Whippany Fire House for a Fire Safety meeting hosted by Senior Fire Inspector Josh Makowski and Fire Inspector's Paul Perrello and Ian Bell.

They reviewed the importance of checking smoke detectors, planning home fire escape routes for families and identifying a meeting place outside the home in case of an emergency, keeping matches, gasoline, and all flammable materials locked away and out of reach of a child's reach and never leave cooking food unattended.

Educating AuPairs on fire safety is a top priority for parents.  Au Pairs are often the primary caregivers for many local families during the day.  Fire safety training is important because it reinforces their knowledge of what to do if there is an emergency, starting with getting themselves and the children out of the house should a fire break out.

This morning the Whippany Fire and the Cedar Knolls Fire Department's were dispatched to a report of black smoke coming from the residence at approx. 8:30am this morning. The fire quickly spread to a two-alarm blaze which devastated a home in the Whippany section of Hanover.

There are reports of significant damage on the second floor and extensive smoke damage on the first floor. The home was unoccupied at the time of the fire. The below freezing temperatures hindered firefighters’ efforts as the water quickly froze.

Responding mutual aid departments were called in from Morris Plains, Morris Township, Madison and Florham Park.

The Morris County Office of Emergency Management, Morris Minute Men EMS, and emergency medical staff from the Cedar Knolls Fire Department also responded to the blaze. A special request for the county mobile ambulance bus was requested which served as a warm rehabilitation area for firefighters.

No injuries were reported. Our thoughts are with the homeowners as they go through this difficult time.


The Whippany Fire Department Commissioners (Township of Hanover Fire District #2) have been working on several projects, and we would like to take a few minutes of your time to shed some light on these initiatives. Click here to read more...
