After the storms cleared early this morning, Oradell was left with minimal damage. The fire department did respond to River Dell High School where a tree was struck by lighting, fell, and knocked down an adjacent light pole.
On 6/23/15 at around 10:20 pm Oradell units were dispatched for a reported Motor Vehicle crash into a home. Oradell Police arrived and confirmed the driver was not trapped, but required medical attention. Oradell Chief 20, Captain 202, Squad 22, Tower 21 and Engine 23 responded along with EMS from New Milford Ambulance. FD units secured the vehicle and stabilized the damage to the home.
