The Borough of Wildwood Crest’s Volunteer Fire Company has received a $2,500 grant from The Wawa Foundation to support the company’s emergency services efforts. According to Wildwood Crest Fire Chief Ron Harwood, the grant money will be used to help purchase new fire gear, maintain existing fire apparatus, upgrading equipment and replace 15-year-old self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) air packs.
The Wildwood Crest Volunteer Fire Company applied for the grant online earlier this year. According to its website, The Wawa Foundation is a registered non-profit corporation founded by Wawa, Inc., that supports organizations committed to championing life-saving research and care for people in need, leading hunger-relief efforts and supporting the heroes making a difference every day.

VIDEO: Three men stand accused of running a drug mill that allegedly sold heroin and fentanyl stamped with "brands" linked to dozens of overdoses, including 84 deaths.
State Attorney General Gurbir Grewal announced the arrests Thursday. He estimated that the drug mill, set up in a luxury apartment in Harrison, supplied 15,000 doses of fentanyl and heroin per day.
Authorities say the operation was run by 45-year-old Timothy Guest, of Irvington, along with at least two associates, 27-year-old William Woodley, of Belleville, and 25-year-old Selionel Orama, of Cedar Grove. All three face numerous drug possession counts and a charge of maintaining a narcotics production facility.
Authorities say the mill has been linked to 227 overdoses. They say about 32,500 individual doses and four kilos of fentanyl and heroin have been seized.
