The Monmouth Beach Fire Company is issuing the following statement to the residents of the town to dispel any rumors and or misinformation. The Monmouth Beach Volunteer Fire Company suffered a major hit in 2012 as did all our residents from Super Storm Sandy and as of today our Fire House is still down to the studs. The Fire Company has been working extremely hard to secure funds to restore the Fire House and prevent any further storms from creating the same damage. The Fire Company, 7 years after Super Storm Sandy struck, was finally able to secure approximately 80% of the needed funding to restore the Fire House through a long and difficult process with FEMA.
In order to move forward with restoring our Firehouse, it will require us to set up a temporary garage to house the fire apparatus and equipment in order to still be able to answer calls in the borough during the construction. Why do we need a temporary garage? The fire apparatus/equipment need to be properly secured and out of the weather elements in order to maintain operational readiness. The Fire Company over the last couple of months has been looking for an open space to accommodate this temporary garage, but as all of us know there is very little open space throughout the Borough. There were a few spaces on the radar that we researched, monitored, and found to be unusable due to flooding which would prevent our members from accessing the temporary garage. Other locations researched include the Cultural Center and the overflow lot for the beach club. If these sites were utilized they would interrupt parking for the beach and bathing pavilion, create parking issues on the side streets (not favorable) and place the Borough in violation of their beach management plan (which includes parking) with the NJ DEP. Fortunately, the Fire Company located a privately owned vacant lot on Robbin Street that meets all our needs and is in close proximately of our current building.
Why were the residents not notified yet? The Fire Company has not been able to secure plans yet as we just conducted a site survey.
What is the timeline of the temporary garage? The estimated time frame is 8-12 months. To begin late summer 2020.
Will the temporary garage be removed upon completion? The garage will be removed, and the lot will be returned to its original state.
The Members of the Monmouth Beach Fire Company thank the residents in advance for their patience, understanding and allowing us to restore our building so that we can continue to provide Fire Protection for our community.
