Don’t Forget!

Please Shovel Your Nearest Fire Hydrant!

 

Help Us, Help You- Please Shovel Your Nearest Fire Hydrant!

A message about Winter Storm Stella…

From the Clifton Fire Department Office of Emergency Management:

 

If you do not have to be on the road stay home and allow the DPW to clear the roads.

 

If possible please move all vehicles off the road so the plows can remove the snow from curb to curb on the streets.

 

Once the roads are plowed and cleared please do not place any items in the road to save parking spaces. These items create safety hazards and will be removed and discarded.

 

Please assist the Fire Department by clearing any fire hydrants in front of your property. If you are elderly or unable to clear the fire hydrant please mark the location of the fire hydrant as best as possible to assist the fire department in locating it and shoveling it out.

 

Please be vigilant of your neighbors in case they need assistance.

 

In case of an emergency call 911 and the fire and police departments will respond to assist you with your needs.

 

Thank you for your assistance , and as always be safe.

Clifton FMBA 21- Cooked and Uncorked Event


On Monday, February 27, a team of firefighters from Clifton FMBA Local 21 will participate in the 7th annual Cooked and Uncorked Food and Wine Tasting event. This special event, hosted by the NJFMBA, pits teams of professional firefighters, representing 20 New Jersey fire departments, competing to show off their cooking talents, and will be held at the Pines Manor in Edison.

The event benefits the Saint Barnabas Burn Center and the New Jersey Firefighters Mutual Benevolent Association Foundation.

“The time our members spend together in the firehouse, sometimes in the kitchen, is an important part of their efforts to develop camaraderie and a sense of teamwork,” stated John Beard, President, FMBA Local 21. “That is every bit as important to their ability to do their jobs as the rigorous and continual training they go through every shift. This event is a great way for them to work together, blow off some steam, and raise money for some important causes.”

Tim Flynn, Clifton’s Cooked and Uncorked Executive Chef added, “Our team is ready to compete with the best firehouse chefs in New Jersey, and we are proud to dedicate our participation to the memory of Scott Danielson, a committed volunteer first responder, and brother of one of our members, who died in 2016 after responding to a car accident.”
