Dear Valued Residents and Business Owners:
The members of the Totowa Fire Department hope that this letter finds you all healthy and safe. Throughout the past few years, our department has continued to respond when called upon for emergencies despite the ever-changing occurrences in everyday life.
As in recent years, we will continue to conduct our annual fundraiser via mail in, PayPal and Venmo in an effort to keep everyone safe. We hope that you can help us by donating so that our department can continue to provide firefighting services to our community.
The support that you have provided to our department in years prior has allowed for continued training and purchasing of vital equipment needed to respond to emergencies. By donating to our fundraising efforts, our department can continue to provide the training and equipment needed to provide the quickest, most efficient response.
Interested in serving your community? We are ALWAYS looking for new volunteers to join our department and help us to keep our community safe. Training is free! Call 973-956-8644 or stop by any firehouse for more information.
Always be sure to check your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors! Not sure if your detector needs to be replaced? Give our department a call and we can assist you in determining whether your detector should be replaced. If either detector sounds, call 911 right away!
Recently, there has been an uprise in the number of fires nationwide involving Lithium-Ion Batteries. We urge our residents to use caution with such items when charging them. Always inspect your batteries for damage and be observant to any issues such as smell, temperature change, discoloration, or noises out of the ordinary. If this occurs, discontinue chargingand place them outside and away from combustibles. Call us if you have concerns.
The members of the Totowa Fire Department thank you for your continued support. We look forward to seeing you at our Annual Totowa and West Paterson and Little Falls Fire Departments’Holiday Parade on November 25 at 5pm!
