The position may, in the eyes of some, appear to be a lowly one; but who we know the work which the fireman has to do believe that his is noble calling. Our proudest moment is to save lives. Under the impulse of such thoughts, the nobility of the occupation thrills us and stimulates us to deeds of daring, even of supreme sacrifice."

    Union Township South Lebanon used to be South Lebanon Union Township, until they printed up the shirts and noticed the back read "S.L.U.T."

    Default Leland's Scorpion

    I am a employee with Leland fire rescue and the scorpion is the motto of the local high school( North Brunswick high). We had a older rescue unit and it had a similar picture on it, so we carried it over to our new heavy rescue unit.
