Dive Team Recovers Cell Phone

On Sunday, June 6th, the Co # 1 Dive Team received a call from Mahwah PD asking if our divers were available to search for a cell phone a Mahwah resident had just lost in Winter’s Pond, right under the bridge. Happy to help, we offered to deploy a diver to quickly check under the bridge in the area the resident thought the phone went, hoping for a quick find. The ambient temperature was over 90-degrees that day, so we limited operational time for diver safety. After submerging, the diver discovered that the base of the spillway dam under the bridge was packed with over a foot of branches and silt, making searching difficult. Despite searching for over 30 minutes, the search was called off in favor of coming back later in the week with more resources. On Wednesday, June 9th, the full dive team assembled for our regular drill …

Fire Alarm and Structure Collapse

Early Saturday morning, firefighters from Company 1 were dispatched to an activated fire alarm at a business on Franklin Turnpike. This business was also the site of a large multi-alarm fire the previous year and has been undergoing construction ever since. After arriving on scene and making entry, firefighters discovered that a rear portion of the structure had collapsed, taking a section of sprinkler riser with it (which caused the alarm). Firefighters secured the sprinkler system and utilities to prevent further damage while the proper inspectors were requested to the scene. Though no obvious cause for collapse could be immediately identified, it was likely that the sustained high winds that night may have played a role. Thankfully, there were no injuries as the business had already been closed for several hours and no one was inside.
