How does the closure jeopardize life and property?

I'm confused. The sign in front of Fire Company #1 says they're closed. If Fire and Rescue CompanyRead More# 2 is closed, then we have no firehouses at all. THAT would jeopardize life and property. My insurance company needs to know: am I or am I not within five miles of a firehouse? Do they measure by road or by straight line? If there are no working firehouses in Holmdel, where is the nearest operational firehouse? There is supposed to be a firehouse on Crawfords Corner Road. Is that Fire Company #1 (closed), Fire and Rescue Company #2 (closed?) or something else? If there is one, where is it? At the school? The post office? The arts center?

Did you do the math from the Crawford’s Corner Firehouse? How about the Firehouse on Vonage?

According to the fire and rescue company's own website, their headquarters is on Centerville RoadRead Morean d they have a substation at 24 Crawfords Corner Road. There is no firehouse on Vonage; it's a promise, not a reality. I don't see a firehouse at 24 Crawfords Corner Road either. Mapquest and Google Maps put it in front of the school. We have the school, the Public Works facility, and the Municipal Complex. Where is the firehouse? Driving time is 11 minutes from the Centerville station. It would be 7 minutes from a station at 24 Crawfords Corner Road and 3 minutes from a Vonage station next to the old firehouse, if they exist and are currently operational.

Crawford's Corner Road Firehouse is in the same building as the first aid but on the other side
