Last evening, at the Monroe Twp Council Meeting, Chief Smith along with Chief Mason of the Williamstown Fire Department (also a Firefighter in Glassboro) were both recognized for their actions at a recent fire on Rex Avenue in Williamstown last month.

On January 29th, 2021 both fire departments from Monroe Township were dispatched to 1720 Rex Avenue in the Williamstown section for a reported dwelling fire. While units were responding they were given an update from Gloucester County Communications that there was a person trapped in the house. Chief Smith of the Glassboro Fire Department was off duty but heard the reports and was nearby. He arrived on the scene and immediately entered the house under zero visibility conditions due to heavy smoke. Chief Smith was able to locate the elderly woman in the back bedroom of the house. He assisted the woman in getting to the ground and removing her to a safe environment outside of the house with the help of Chief Mason.
