Congratulations to the New 2015 Wyckoff Fire Department Pump Operators

Monday, August 10, 2015  Congratulations to the eight members of the Wyckoff Fire Department who have completed and passed the evaluation and are now qualified pump operators for the Wyckoff Fire Department.

After many weeks and months of classroom training and practical evolutions, we want to congratulate the following members on completing and passing the WFD Pump Operators course.

Company 1: Alex Cascardo, Steve Kopshaw, Jimmy Viapiano

Company 2: Evan Costanza, EJ Lawler, Mark Tanucilli

Company 3: Paul Kasabian, Jesse Levine

The Wyckoff Fire Department would also like to thank Steve Kalman, Deputy Chief of the Hackensack Fire Department and Instructor from the Bergen County Fire Academy. This year we utilized the BCFA Pump Operators Course and combined it with the WFD Pump operators course in training our new operators. 

Also thanks to all the instructors: Ex-DC Len DeBlock, Assistant Chief Tim Brock, Ex-DC and current Lt. Joe Vanderplaat, Lt. Chris Joachim and FF Anthony Paras. Without their commitment and devotion of two to three nights per week, this could not have been accomplished.

Last but not least, thank you to all the members of the WFD, both firefighters and juniors, that came out evenings to pull and use hand lines, and repack hose after each evolution.
