Just a reminder that consumer fireworks are illegal in the State of New Jersey, please leave the fireworks to the professionals.
Fireworks were involved in an estimated 10,500 injuries treated in U.S. hospital emergency departments during calendar year 2014. An estimated 7,000 of those fireworks-related injuries were treated between June 20 and July 20.
The Oradell Fire Department and River Edge Fire Department joined forces today to demonstrate to this year’s River Dell Junior Police Academy recruits some of the equipment and operations of the fire department and how we contribute to the world of public safety. Both departments also demonstrated the role of the fire department at a motor vehicle crash.
