Howell Township Police Department INCIDENT NOTIFICATION
This morning at approximately 0900 hours, Howell Police Communications received 9-1-1 calls reporting a vehicle submerged off the boat ramp at the reservoir.
Upon police arrival, the two occupants were found out of the vehicle.
Squankum Fire Dive Team responded and provided assistance to Certified Auto by securing the vehicle with tow straps.
Investigation revealed the vehicle was accidentally placed into reverse after the boat was launched.
Both occupants were from Toms River. There were no injuries reported and no contamination to the water.
It is still unknown who turned on the windshield wipers. Well played.

Southard Fire Dept. No.1We have all seen people with gloves and masks on, but are they aware of the proper way to put it on and take it off, as well as the proper way to wear it so they do NOT get themselves or other people sick? Please take the time to watch this video from a leading hazmat specialist and icon in emergency response.

If you are quarantined (mandatory or self imposed) in your home or business due to possible or confirmed COVID-19 exposure, PLEASE notify 911 when you call and advise the dispatcher. If you have a fever, cough, or any flu-like symptoms, PLEASE let the dispatcher know as well.
We also ask that you place a sign/note on your front door to alert our firefighters, EMTs, and law enforcement officers to take infection-prevention precautions before entering your home or business. We need to protect our crews so that they will be able to continue to meet the emergency needs of the community.
Elsewhere, there have been entire fire companies quarantined after they have responded to quarantined homes, and were not alerted before entering. Those first responders are now unavailable to help anyone for at least 14 days.
In our department we CAN NOT afford to have this happen, being VOLUNTEER we do not want to have to take it home to our families or risk compromising the safety of our community when there are prevention procedures to implement.
“Sometimes” in the fire house there is a bit of joking around. Well, FF Gallagher decided he was gonna make a friendly wager with FF Silvani about mustaches. FF Gallagher said he would dye his mustache black if FF Silvani would grow his out to which FF Silvani said he would not grow one. Well one day to FF Gallagher’a surprise FF Silvani grew his mustache.....and well a bet is a bet..... ... See MoreSee Less
