This article is a direct street report from our correspondent and has not been edited by the 1st Responder newsroom.

Fair Haven, NJ - On Sunday, October 14th, the Fair Haven Fire Department held their annual Fall Car Show fundraiser for both the Fire Police and Auxiliary organizations; both of which are entirely volunteer.

This year marked the 19th consecutive year of the event, sporting over 150 vehicles of many makes, models and eras. This year's car show also saw several firefighting pieces of apparatus that served the borough for many years, as well as several others that are department or locally owned.

Fair Haven Fire Department's three former apparatus fortunately are well preserved and maintained. The company's 1954 LaFrance as always caught the eye of many participants; the department's former 1975 Mack CF (now owned by a current member), was also there; and the department's former 1940 GMC Sealand Patrol truck was also there, courtesy of owner Dale Bennett.

Also in attendance was West Long Branch's retired 1969 Mack CF (which is company owned now), as well as Ford Fire Company No.1's former pumper, and a former chief's vehicle owned by a fellow fireman who belongs to the Little Silver Fire Department, which neighbors Fair Haven.

A great day was had by all with 50/50 drawings and door prizes handed out, as well as over 50 trophies presented to lucky winners. The Fair Haven Fire Police and Fair Haven Auxiliary thanks all who attended, as well as all the owners who participated for the 19th Annual Car Show, and hope to see everyone back for their 20th in 2019!
