About Us

The Rutgers Auxiliary is a committee in the Johnson Fire Department. We are a non-profit, volunteer organization. Since 1960, it is the mission of the Rutgers Auxiliary to raise money for the Johnson Fire company (Rutgers Engine Company #1), as well as the surrounding community.

The Rutgers Auxiliary conducts fund-raisers throughout the year. We have a positive impact on Minisink families and the surrounding communities. We raise money for charity and all proceeds from the fund-raisers are donated to The Johnson Fire Department, Minisink Cares, local food pantries, Middletown Humane Society, Minisink Backpack program, Minisink Project Graduation, and scholarships for 2 Minisink Valley graduating seniors. The Rutgers Auxiliary is a non-profit organization that gives back to the community.

Fireman's Prayer

When I am called to duty, God wherever flames may rage,
give me strength to save a life, whatever be its age.
Help me to embrace a little child before it's too late,
or save an older person from the horror of that fate.
Enable me to be alert to hear the weakest shout,
and quickly and efficiently to put the fire out.
I want to fill my calling and to give the best in me,
to guard my neighbor and protect their property.
And if according to your will I have to lose my life,
bless with your protecting hand my Lord,
I pray thee, protect my children and my wife.
