ABOUT THE SCALE MODEL

This Liberty Corner Fire Company Tower 40 scale model is a museum grade replica. Like all Fire Replicas models, every detail is modeled to perfection and with razor sharp precision. The replica features the specific department configuration and graphics, leaving no detail overlooked. The display case is custom manufactured with high quality acrylic and resin. The stainless steel etched plate features the department seal, and the department and truck name. This replica is a treasure to be displayed and admired and is in no way a toy.

ABOUT THE COMMUNITY, DEPARTMENT, AND TRUCK

Bernards Township, located in Somerset County, NJ is about 10 miles south of Morristown and approximately 35 miles west of New York City. Originally chartered in 1760 by King George II, the area figured prominently in the American Revolution: Lafayette’s troops were quartered here; General of the Continental Army Charles Lee was arrested at Widow White’s Tavern; and General Washington visited Lord Stirling’s estate.   After the Civil War tourism and other industries flourished, and the arrival of the railroad in 1872 brought further economic boom to the area.  With the completion of interstate 287 and 78 the township continued to grow and transform.

Today the township is the site of the United States Golf Association and Museum as well as the headquarters location of several large companies.  The community is home to over 26,000 residents within its 24 square mile boundaries.

The Liberty Corner Fire Company provides fire protection services to the 18 square miles located in the central and southern portions of the Township.  Comprised of 65 members, the fire company has been proud to provide volunteer fire and rescue services to the residents and business people of our community since 1910.  The firehouse is located on Church Street and houses 2 Engines, 1 Rescue, 1 Tower/Ladder, 1 Command Vehicle, and 1 Support Vehicle.

The company has averaged over 450 calls per year since 2010 and prides itself on providing professional and efficient services to those in need.  The first apparatus put into service was a horse drawn ladder donated by the neighboring Bernardsville Fire Company.  A barn pole from that rig hangs in the firehouse as a reminder of the fire company’s rich history.

In 2009, the fire company received its’ first modern aerial when it took delivery of a 100 foot Pierce Velocity Tower Ladder with a 2,000 gallon per minute Waterous pump.  The project to fund, build, and deliver this apparatus spanned 10 years, and countless hours of research and planning by the company to ensure a design that meets the needs of our community over the foreseeable future.  Tower 40 provides the members and citizens of Bernards Township with another tool to ensure the best possible service during emergencies.  On the turntable is an American eagle and 343 in tribute to our brothers in the FDNY who made the ultimate sacrifice on September 11th, 2001.  We will never forget.
