Re-Opening of the Sandy Hook Lighthouse and Fort Hancock Post Museum. The Sandy Hook Lighthouse, which has been a landmark of our area for over 250 years, was closed for renovation, and the Fort Hancock Post Museum had been closed since 2010 after sustaining damage in Superstorm Sandy. These newly-renovated buildings will be a wonderful opportunity for our community to continue to explore the rich history of both Middletown Township and Monmouth County.

Fire Prevention Month

On Wednesday, October 3rd, the MTFD kicked of Fire Prevention Month at Lincroft Elementary School. Throughout the month of October, volunteer firefighters will visit 14 elementary schools across town and teach children about the basics of fire safety. By using the Mobile Fire Safety House, the MTFD is able to simulate a smoke situation and give kids a chance to practice how to respond to a smoke alarm safely. They are also given a close up look at a firetruck and its equipment. This is a fun way for children to get to know our volunteers and learn the importance of fire safety.

ATTN Former M&S Waste Customers:

The Township has been notified that M&S has not collected all of their garbage carts across town. The NJ Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and the Township have been in discussions to determine the best course of action to assist residents in this situation.
The first step in the process is to ascertain how many residents still have uncollected carts. If you currently have an M&S cart on your property that needs to be collected, please complete this form so we can work with the NJ DEP and the contractor to have these carts picked up.
Please submit the form no later than October 12th so the database can be sent to the DEP for action. Once your name is entered into the database you will notified when your cart will be collected along with any other further instructions.
