Tonight during the monthly meeting Oradell FD Members were alerted for a car fire on O’Connell Place. Units turned out quickly with Chief 20, Chief 201 arriving and confirming a well involved SUV. Squad 22, Engine 23 and Engine 24 all arrived about the same time. Squad 22 and Engine 23 each stretched one hose line each and operated for about 30 minutes with members for Engine 24.

The dedicated members of the Oradell Volunteer Fire Department will be ready for this upcoming snow storm and you can help. No one likes Mr. Plow when he comes by, but Mr. Plow is a necessary evil. Mr. Plow likes to cover Mr. Hydrant and we need every Fire Hydrant as accessible as possible. We have responded to many fires in the weather that we are expecting. It CAN happen here – HELP OFD TO HELP YOU. Keep the hydrants clear for 3 feet on all sides.
Its that time of the year again when we spring forward and lose and hour of sleep! What a great time to check and replace those smoke detector batteries. While you are out getting the bread and milk today (more on that in the next post) grab those batteries and get it done!
The fire department welcomed Probationary Firefighter Michael Jaimes, as he was sworn in by Mayor Didio at the public meeting last Tuesday. Welcome Michael, and stay safe!
On Saturday, January 7th, despite the snow fall, Mayor Dianne Didio had the pleasure of swearing in the fire department’s new slate of officers. Well deserved guys!
