Our prayers and thoughts go out to the family of Captain Greg Barnas of the Wallington Fire Departments. Greg was a dedicated firefighter who served his communities and protected his neighbors. His death is a shock to all who knew and loved him. No greater love does a person have then to lay down his life for his neighbors. Greg is an example of this. May his family and fire departments find comfort in knowing that Greg now rests with all our fallen heroes and that his memory will always live on in their hearts. Rest in peace, Greg, and may you enjoy the rewards of everlasting peace in heaven.

It is with deep sympathy to advise the passing of Ex-Deputy Chief of Wyckoff Fire Company No. 1 George Vaughan. George served in the United States Army for three years with two terms in Vietnam. During his time as officer in the Wyckoff Fire Department, he was referred to as Colonel Clink because he ran a very tight ship. He was a life member and instrumental in teaching all of the apparatus courses and molding them into what they are today. George's voice would be heard over the radio as he ran fire desk and NORCON for the mutual aid. After drills, meetings and calls, George could always be found in the kitchen making us a warm meal.He will be missed.The arrangements are as follows: Visiting on Thursday, March 6, 2014 from 6 p.m.- 8 p.m. at the Vander Plaat Funeral Home in Wyckoff with a firemen's service at 6:30 p.m.Everything is on Thursday. There is no funeral.

At the January 14, 2014 Township Committee meeting, the Wyckoff Volunteer Fire Department was presented with a donation from Saint Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church located on Grandview Ave to purchase rescue and safety equipment to be used in responding to emergency calls for service. Presenting the donation to Fire Chief Lou Graglia are George Gasparis, James Giokas, Father Economos Basil Gikas and Nicholas Karras. The Wyckoff Fire Department will use the donation to purchase two Multi Gas meters to be equipped in the Fire Chief's vehicle "230" and the Assistant Chief's vehicle "240". Currently neither vehicle has any gas or CO meters and since they are the first to arrive on scene, these meters will assist in providing a more expedient size up/evaluation of the emergency call.
