Wyckoff Fire Department Participates in Tunnel To Towers

Sunday, September 28, 2014  Members of the Wyckoff Fire Department, some accompanied by family, participated in the Stephen Siller Tunnel To Towers 5K Run and Walk on Sunday morning in New York City.

The event is held in remembrance of former FDNY fireman Stephen Siller, who passed away on 9/11. Siller was off-duty when the first plane hit the World Trade Center, but he drove to the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel, packed 60 pounds of gear on his back and ran to the Twin Towers to help, where he died a hero.

The Wyckoff Fire Department also ran in honor of Dana Hannon, a Wyckoff and FDNY fireman who also passed away helping save lives that tragic day.

57th Annual Wyckoff Volunteer Fire Department Fireworks Fundraiser Successful

Wednesday, September 3, 2014  The 57th Annual Wyckoff Volunteer Fire Department Fundraiser Fireworks were held on Saturday, August 30 on Memorial Field. The weather was ideal, and the annual fundraiser put on by the Wyckoff Fire Department was a success.

In addition to the spectacular fireworks display, this year included Dancing with the DJ, delicious food vendors, Child ID kits (provided by NY Life) and fun activities for the kids prior to the fireworks display.

Without the continued generosity of our sponsors, supporters and residents, this event would not be possible. 

Special thanks to our fireworks committee (Steve Kopshaw, Tony Avia and Pete Tani) who dedicated so much time and effort to make this event possible.

WFD Assists Hawthorne FD at Goffle Rd. Fire

Thursday, August 7, 2014  The Wyckoff Fire Department responded to Hawthorne with one engine to assist with a fire at Peerless Coatings, LLC, located on Goffle Road in Hawthorne, NJ.

The fire went to a second alarm before it was placed under control. It is believed to have started in an oven used to bake coatings onto various items.

The fire extended to the structure and through a large ventilation fan on the roof.

The building was sprinklered, which aided crews to bring the fire under control in approximately one hour.

Nice job by the Hawthorne Fire Department and all mutual aid crews on the scene!
