Upgraded County Training Complex
Hunterdon County Volunteer firefighters from the twenty-seven County volunteer fire companies and other emergency first responders will receive state required training at an upgraded eight-acre County Emergency Services Training Complex, under a plan approved by Hunterdon County’s Freeholder Board on July 2 nd .

The long planned upgraded complex in Clinton Township, including a state of the art forty-foot live burn training tower, will replace the current facilities that are between forty and twenty-six years old and are at or past their useful lives. The $6.9 million in capital funding required for the project was approved by the Freeholder Board in a 2016 ordinance.

Freeholder Deputy Director John E. Lanza, the Board’s Public Safety and OEM liaison, said, “It is critical for the County to ensure that all First Responders are adequately trained on how to protect themselves, and the public, during an active shooter incident. This training saves lives. Nothing is more important than that simple fact.”

Hunterdon Freeholders Call On NJDEP To Fix ‘Miscommunication’
And Fund Black Fly Spraying Now
After being notified by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection on July 1 st that the New Jersey side of the Delaware River will not be sprayed for black flies, due to New Jersey not providing funding, the Hunterdon County Freeholders have called on the NJDEP to fund the program that protects the health and quality of life for Hunterdon County residents.

The County received an email from the Pennsylvania DEP’s Southeast Regional Office, on July 1st, the day before spraying was to begin stating, ‘without financial support from New Jersey, Pennsylvania can no longer manage and spray the New Jersey portion of the Delaware River.’ There has been no notice from the NJDEP regarding the funding cut.
