On May 7, the Gloucester County Fire Chiefs and Officers Association held its annual Feast of Saint Florian, the patron saint of firefighters. The event was held at Christ Church in Woodbury. Each apparatus is blessed with Holy Water and prayed over. East Greenwich Twp. Fire and Rescue had Water Tender 1914, Rescue 1918 and Brush 1915 blessed. The service then continued in the church where pastors from various churches around the area pray for the safety of all firefighters. There is a remembrance of those that have passed on in the past year. Each firefighter in attendance is presented a St. Florian medallion.
