GLOUCESTER CITY FIRE DEPARTMENT NEWS

 

CNBNews Editors Note (GLOUCESTER CITY, NJ) (August 3, 2022)--We recently noticed Screen Shot 2022-06-11 at 20.56.19several photos with captions on the Gloucester City Fire Department's Facebook page that we have republished below. This may be hard to believe, but there are actually people living in Gloucester City and Westville who don't have a Facebook account. As a result, they are unaware of the fire calls the GCFD has responded to, nor do they know about the training sessions the members participated in. The period being published is from May to July 2022.

Prayer to Bless All Firefighters


All-powerful Father, I ask You to look upon the Earth and bless Your servants who are members of the firefighting community. I ask that You bless and honor their willingness to sacrifice themselves for the sake of others. Give these heroes the protection and strength they need to carry out their civic function in a way that honors and upholds Your holy name. Amen.
