Brooklawn FD along with Battalion 303,307 BLS 318 Swift Water 3 and High Water 4 just got back from removing occupants that drove into over 3 1/2 feet of flood waters along Big Timber Creek.
Incidents like these pose numerous dangers such as : tidal moving water, unforeseen manhole covers that often become dislodged, extreme water temperatures just to name a few.
Bellmawr’s Office Of Emergency Management’s High Water Vehicle was obtained through a Government Surplus Grant and outfitted by our Volunteers and Public Works Department.
Having the right equipment and training enables us to accomplish incidents like this in the safest and quickest way. ... See MoreSee Less
I feel bad for the responders who have better things to do than “rescue “ someone from their own idiocy.
This is shocking. That area never floods. How would anyone ever know to stay away from there when it looks like it could be flooded!? 🙄🙄🙄
Why would you even try with that car
The guy driving has a man bun on top of his head. That explains everything
Honestly how much would it be to install proper drainage? These circles have been flooding for years and y’all buy a truck for it.
How fing stupid can people be??? SMH
Great work by all Departments
Anyone try fishing 🎣
People are so dumb it hurts my brain
This post just made my day, that’s an awesome job prepared for anything, love the high water vehicle keep up the great work
What the heck were they thinking going thru water like that.?
Is ‘this now? Current or post from before
Seriously? Everyone knows this area floods, and yet there is always some ding bat who thinks their car is a boat.
I was just over there and saw a car smaller than that drive behind a truck...
Thank God for the 1st responders. These people who drove through this kind of water are really dumb and really lucky 🍀 that the responders helped them it could have gotten worse for these dumb people
Cmon only jeeps can play there!
Who in their right mind would drive into that......insurance job!
That's one way to get out of a payment you cant afford.
Some people think they are above anything....unreal
They should have signs......😂🤪
Why do people even attempt this, endangering ur life as well as responders....
Nice job, well done!!
Should have left their ass there since they felt the need to drive thru it! Wow! 🤷♀️

Praying the driver is ok. Be safe out there first responders
How'd he end up facing completely the opposite direction, and why was it still there at 6:30pm?
Couldn’t be the tire that did not match wake up drivers or go back to wherever you came from if you’re going to drive a truck make sure I can handle the load
Be safe please
Why don’t they drive slower

They need to get that construction done. So many accidents and lives lost since it started. Ridiculous! There's gotta be a better way..
It seems like a lot more accidents since the construction
I thought I saw a state trooper in the back of this accident with the front of his cruiser all smashed in, is that what I saw?
Hope all is ok

*** HEAVY VEHICLE AND PEDESTRIAN TRAFFIC EXPECTED 01-09-19 ***
On 01-09-19, Sgt. Richard Desmond (ret) of the Camden City Police Department and Drum Major/Founding member of the Camden County Emerald Society is being laid to rest.
First, on behalf of all of us here at the Borough of Bellmawr, we would like to extend our deepest condolences to the family and friends of D/M Desmond. Please know that his service in all capacities did not go unnoticed and that we are grieving along with you.
Starting at 0600 hrs on 01-09-19, a contingent of fellow Pipes and Drums members from as far away as Alaska will be staging and preparing to depart from the lot of 29 Lewis Avenue, (Bellmawr Fire Department #1) which is marked with the gold star.
There will be a brief series of traffic control points established at 0630hrs to facilitate their transport to Gloucester Township and the services at St. Agnes, which begin at 0900hrs. Those same points will be controlled upon their return at approximately 1500hrs.
The repast is also being held at 29 Lewis Ave, Bellmawr and as D/M Desmond was a highly respected individual and known far and wide, we expect a large volume of traffic in the area.
We ask that any buses returning to the area for the repast take E. Browning Rd to;
Spruce Ave (left)
Braisington Ave (left)
E. Chestnut (left)
Lewis Ave (left)
Drop off point will be in front of the Fire Department.
Those areas marked in red designate both the perimeter of the area that will be most affected and outline the area where parking will be available.
Primary parking will be the lot between 21 Lewis Ave (Borough Hall) and 29 Lewis Ave (Bellmawr Fire Dept.) with additional off-street parking in the lot of Mary Mother of the Church (20 Braisington Ave) and the adjacent parking lot on Spruce Avenue across from the church. These areas are marked with the red and white stars.
The gate at the rear of the Fire Department lot will be open to allow access to overflow parking and is marked on the map with an arrow.
Cones and barricades are in the process of being staged within the earlier described area and we ask that everyone please respect and abide by those areas cordoned off by them.
Additionally, we ask that only those going to or coming from the services and/or repast park between 21 Lewis Avenue and 29 Lewis Avenue starting at 5 PM tonight and that everyone please prepare for the influx of vehicles and pedestrians in the area.
Thank you for your anticipated cooperation.
Rest in Peace, Sir! ... See MoreSee Less

A warm front lifting through the region will bring higher than normal temperatures and widespread rain across the area. Given the recent wet conditions, this rain could lead to localized urban and small stream flooding. Additionally, for the southern Poconos and far Northwest New Jersey, the precipitation may start as a wintry mix of freezing rain and sleet late tonight before changing to all rain before sunrise tomorrow morning.
- NEVER drive through flooded areas! Water may be deeper than you think! Obey traffic barriers. Visit 511nj.org for traffic updates!
- Know how to report a power outage. Check out ready.nj.gov/plan-prepare/public-utilities.shtml for public utility information and outage maps. Always report an outage to your utility company.
- Stay tuned to your local weather to plan ahead!

Members of the Bellmawr Fire Department will be escorting Santa around town on Christmas Eve; they will be heading out around 4:30ish. This is, and has been a long standing proud tradition in our community. The Volunteer members enjoy spreading the Holiday spirit; please understand as much as we would like to accommodate everyone’s schedule it is logistically impossible. I would like to thank these members as they are spending time away from their families. On behalf of the members of the Bellmawr Fire Department we would like to wish you and your family a Merry Christmas. Stay Safe and Enjoy
