Media coverage of the accident on Route 1 in Plainsboro.
Last night’s Plainsboro Fire Company dinner featured an extraordinary moment that no one who attended will ever forget. You could hear a pin drop in a room of 140 firefighters, cops and EMTs as our friend and brother, Lawrenceville Deputy Chief and President Ray Nagy, talked about being diagnosed with stage 2 cancer last year and how our support and the support of all of the other fire companies in our region him helped him beat the disease. He is now cancer free. In July, the Plainsboro Fire N.J. Firefighters Bike Race Team dedicated their race to Ray as a sign of our support for him and to let him know we were standing with him. Last night, Ray and Kelly Anne presented the fire company with the beautiful Fellowship Award, which will be a cherished part of our firehouse forever. Ray also made a contribution to the fire company to support its members. But, we’re happy to announce that one of the things that will be funded by that contribution is Ray and Kelly Anne’s participation with us in the Tunnel to Towers 5K — and the N.J. Firefighters Bike Race in July. Ray, we’re just glad that you’re healthy but there are no words to say how grateful we are for your gift of brotherhood to us.
Then and Now: The Plainsboro Fire NJ Firefighters Bike Race Team in July, “Racing for Ray,” and united with Ray Nagy and Kelly Anne last night. Until last night, none of the members knew just how important their decision to let Ray he was in their minds was to his recovery. We’re proud to be your brother and happy we could have your back at a time when it made a difference.
Congratulations to the 2017 Award Winners: Theresa “T” Byrnes who received the Walter Carson Award for Service and Tom Healey who received the Elmer Wilson Award for Firematics.
