Later in the morning after the heavy rain had started Co.1 was requested into Rockland County for a water rescue, with a report of multiple people trapped.

This past weekend Co.1 and Co.3 firefighters along with our colleagues from the area and around the state took part in an extensive confined space operations class taught by Rescue Products International. Firefighters received hands on training in confined Space entry and rescue along with regulations, rigging and hauling systems, air monitoring, and site management. The class included live evolutions with entry teams who donned SABA (supplied air breathing apparatus) then packaged and rescued ‘Rescue Randy’ from inside a 15’ storm drain basin, and down a 24’ drainage pipe. RPI and our firefighters will return next month for part 2 of the class for more extensive evolutions and receive their technician certification.
Yesterday was a busy day for Co.1 Firefighters. At around 2pm Co.1 was requested into Ramsey for an Engine along with Co.2 FAST to assist Ramsey Fire dept. was operating at a working fire in a townhouse. Engine 117 responded and performed searches and overhaul before returning to the township. Later in the day just before 8pm, all 5 of Mahwah’s Fire companies were dispatched along with EMS to a structure fire on Sherwood Ave. Upon arrival crews were met with a fully involved detached garage that was in close proximity to the house. An aggressive attack prevented any extension into the home. Once the fire was knocked down, extensive overhaul was performed, and any remaining hot spots were wet down. We thank our mutual aid partners for their assistance.
