11? I thought we just merged everything into one fire company in Barnegat. Were there more than one Barnegat Firemen's Relief Association?

Station 11 is our Ocean County Sheriffs dispatch identifier. For example Stafford is Station 47 and Waretown Station 36. Please visit station11.org for more info on Barnegat Fire Company. Thank you for your interest.

Please visit the NJ State firemen's relief association website for more info on that organization which is not part of Barnegat Fire Company, Station 11, thank you. www.njstatefiremensrelief.com

forget that website - no useful info - found an old Patch/Star Ledger article that does state these two organizations are separate though - this guy was both the treasurer of the relief fund organization and a volunteer in our local volunteer fire organization whatever number - personally, Barnegat Volunteer Fire Company No. 1 works for me, and online provides useful information

There should have been two signatures on every check issued.
