The camera caught a brief glimpse of former OFD Slugger and former Team Manager J. Moretti today. The former Slugger and past head of player development was 21 Chauffeur today for the CO run on Prospect Ave. As you can see staying limber is an important aspect of driving the big red truck. Coach Moretti’s quote of the day – “If your feet hit the street, the vest is on your chest!”
This morning Tri-boro units (Oradell, River Edge and New Milford) were alerted for an activated Fire Alarm at The Woodcrest Center in New Milford. Oradell Tower 21 arrived first due with River Edge Ladder 11 and New Milford Engine 32 behind them. Companies determined the alarm was set off by workers in the basement.
Chief 20, Captain 202, Tower 21, and Engine 23 responded this morning as part of the working fire assignment to the 100 block of Kinderkamack Road in River Edge. The River Edge Fire Department, who was first on the scene, was able to extinguish the fire quickly while firefighters from Oradell’s Tower 21 helped ventilate the structure and open up walls to check for any fire spread.
Tower 21 and Car 20 responded last Saturday night to the 100 block of Bogert Road in River Edge for a reported natural gas leak in the roadway. As the first due truck company, members helped check gas levels in the near by storm drains and surrounding buildings.
