It is with the deepest regret and sadness that today the Members of the Marlboro Fire Department announce the passing of one of its longest serving Life Members and Ex- Chief's Mr. Carlton "Bud" Borden.
Ex-Chief Borden served with the Fire Department in Marlboro Township for over 70+ years and was just recently honored by the Township with a street dedication on Vanderburg Road.
Bud has served the Fire Department over the years in many different capacities such as President, Trustee, Fire Commissioner, Chief of the Department and most of all "good friend"
Arrangement for Ex-Chief Bud Borden are as follows....
A wake on Tuesday August 29th from 4-8pm @ Higgins Funeral Home in Freehold, with a Firefighter service starting at 7pm. Wednesday August 30th beginning at 10am at Higgins with full Fire Department escort to Old Brick Church in Marlboro for 11am mass.
We ask during this time that you keep Bud's family in your thoughts and prayers. His family has been a large part of our extended family for many years. We only hope that he is now at peace and rest with his wife who was also a member of our Ladies Auxiliary Mrs. Betty Borden.
May you continue to watch over us, all the rest of our days Ex-Chief Borden and may you always know that we thank you for your tireless service to the men and women of Marlboro Township and know that we have it from here! ... See MoreSee Less

Today members took time out to attend part of Marlboro Township Police Department "Youth Academy" and show these young men and women who have an interest in one day becoming a Police Officer, Firefighter, EMS, or other First Responder just what it takes to be a Firefighter.
One of our pumpers was shown to the young men and women as well as our Rescue Truck with our Hurst "Jaws of Life" tools that we use when we need to extricate someone out of a vehicle.
Some of the kids also got to see what it was like behind a hose line!
At the end of our presentation we had MONOC One Medical Helicopter come and do a landing so that these young people could also see what it takes to have to fly someone out due to a serious medical issue or from a motor vehicle accident.
Please find some of our pictures from today.
Thank you to Asst. Chief Dave Stattel, Ex-Chief John W. Borden, FF Billy Nagle, FF Robert Lampasona, & FF Joseph Piccolo for attending this morning in such hot and humid conditions!!! ... See MoreSee Less

Do not feel sad. He lived a good life and today we came together from many parts of our land to celibate his life.
Well said about a Great Man!
He was a good man & I'm so sorry that he is gone. I will miss seeing him at the post office. May he rest in peace.
It is with deep regret that the members of the
Marlboro Fire Department announce the passing of our
Ex-Chief and Life Member, Garrett Voorhees Jr.
Chief Voorhees joined our Department in 1959 and served with great pride and distinction over the years. He enjoyed most teaching the new and young Firefighters all about the fire service and also loved to teach children about how to keep safe from fire.
Chief Voorhees will always be remembered in our hearts and minds as the years go on.
Friends and family are invited to attend his visitation on Friday, August 5th from 7- 9 PM, at the Freeman Funeral Home, 47 E Main St, Freehold. A funeral service will be held on Saturday at 11 AM at the Old Brick Reformed Church, Marlboro. Interment will follow at the church’s cemetery. Full Fire Department honors will take place as well for Chief Voorhees.
May you now continue to watch over the men and women of the Marlboro Fire Department Chief and know that we now have it from here! ... See MoreSee Less
