The Oradell Fire Department was recently awarded a grant from the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation of nearly $18,000 for the purchase of a new water rescue boat, engine, and trailer. The Officers & Members of the Oradell Fire Department would like to thank the foundation for this generous donation to support our water rescue operations.
ABOUT FIREHOUSE SUBS PUBLIC SAFETY FOUNDATION
In 2005, the Firehouse Subs founders established the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation with the mission of providing funding, life-saving equipment, and educational opportunities to first-responders and public safety organizations. Through the non-profit 501(c)(3), Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation has given more than $23 million to hometown heroes in 46 states, Puerto Rico and Canada, including more than $274,000 in New Jersey, $255,000 in New York and $49,000 in Connecticut.
IN-RESTAURANT FUNDRAISING INITIATIVES
Each restaurant recycles leftover, five-gallon pickle buckets, available to guests for a $2 donation to the Foundation. Donation canisters on register counters explain the non-profit’s mission and collect spare change, while the Round Up Program allows guests to “round up” their bill to the nearest dollar. All funds raised benefit the Foundation.
Congratulations to Junior Firefighter Will Bertini who recently completed the basic firefighter program and graduated from the Bergen County Fire Academy last Friday night.

On Saturday morning, the fire department responded to a reported smoke condition on the 2nd floor of a building in the 200 block of Kinderkamack Road. The Lieutenant from Engine 23 quickly reported that contractors on scene had ruptured a freon pipe on an air conditioner unit which created a vapor cloud in the hallway. The unit was secured and the building was vented with fresh air. Members took some time to cool down before returning to quarters.
