Every year on the weekend closest to October 15 the New Jersey Deputy Fire Chief's Association conducts a memorial service at this panel. This is "our" panel and we are a proud sponsor. There is one other name on the panel, Marine Corps Veteran/Casualty William Schulz who hailed from Red Bank but attended Middletown High School.
The NJDFCA is a professional organization of paid fire battalion/deputy chiefs who goal is education and training of fellow fire fighters. Deputy Fire Chief Leonard Swan (retired) has been the chairman of this annual service since the memorial was built. The first year the entire Price and Schulz families were present for the dedication.
