Meet Sai Batchu! Sai has been a member with our department since November of last year. He recently passed his Firefighter 1 course at Morris County Public Safety Academy this summer. We are excited to attend his upcoming graduation ceremony on August 17th. The course was an accelerated version, which required students to attend Monday-Friday from 8:00AM-5:00PM.
Sai attended Montville High School in North Jersey prior to starting at The College of New Jersey as a biology major on a pre-med track. On campus he stays active as well by playing club lacrosse. After TCNJ, he hopes to continue his education and attend medical school. Sai lives in Montville, NJ with his family during the summer months but returns to the area when classes resume in September. On Thursday nights, Sai commutes down to Pennington for our weekly drills and meetings to show his dedication and to remain active. While being a member with our fire company he is also an active member with our neighbors at the Pennington First Aid Squad. He is a certified EMT and adds great value to our responding crews when we are dealing with more complicated EMS calls.
