Remember those brave souls that lost their lives - Remember the emergency services personnel and military personnel who risked their lives to save others. Remember the passengers and crew who tried to take back that aircraft. The Firefighters and Officers of Station 37 will be holding our 9/11 ceremony on Sunday- September 11th starting at 0945hrs. To the Brothers and Sisters of the Emergency Service - Rest in Peace To Our Military Personnel - Rest in Peace To the civilians you will never be forgotten - Rest in Peace

   


 

Rest In Peace Ex-Chief Phil Stolz

Thursday, September 8, 2016  The members of Hillsborough Fire Co.2 are sad to announce the passing of Life Member and Ex-Chief Phil Stolz. Ex-Chief Stolz was a very dedicated member of the fire company with over 50 years of service to our community. He was a leader and mentor to us all. Ex-Chief Stolz was the main player on making sure the Hillsborough Firemen's Fair was a success. Phil was also known as the "Fair Boss" - He was the Fair Chairman for 27 years. He continued to be the "boss" up until the property was acquired by the State of NJ for the Route 206 Bypass. Ex-Chief Stolz was one of the original Fire Commissioners in Hillsborough, a member of the Hillsborough Senior Chapter B and a member of St. Joseph Parish. Ex-Chief Stolz, you will truly be missed. Thank you for everything you have done for fire company. Until we meet again Sir! WE GOT IT FROM HERE!
