Meet Tom Grundy! Tom has been a member of Station 51 since his senior year at Hopewell Valley Central High School. Tom's brothers, FF Vaughan Grundy and FF James Grundy encouraged Tom to apply to our department. In high school, Tom played basketball and raised money for cancer by running "Barbeque for the Cure" with some of his friends before football games. Just like his brothers, Tom is an active volunteer with our department and responds to calls whenever he can while continuing to study at Rider University. Tom is currently studying business administration at Rider and after college he hopes to work in construction focusing on the management side. He graduated from his Firefighter I course in January of this year. In the coming months, Tom plans to take additional courses about motor vehicle accident rescue as well as higher level classes of Incident Command System. In his free time, Tom enjoys hunting and fishing and also shoots sporting clays competitively. He has been an all state shooter for 2 years and has shot in 3 U.S. opens across the country. Keep up the great work Tom!
