River Edge Fire Department

Special Operations


Wednesday, December 27, 2017  Did you know that each town of our Triboro has a specialized piece of equipment to deal with circumstances that may be out of the ordinary? For example, Oradell has a dive team, New Milford has a Haz-Mat team, and River Edge has a Special Operations/High Angle Rescue team.Members of the Special Ops team go through extra training, drilling, and are proficient in ropes, knots, and tools that would be used in high angle rescues. Here are some pictures of them drilling earlier.

If you are interested in joining, give us a ring or come down on a Tuesday night or Sunday morning. The training to become a firefighter is free to you!
