Dear Neighbors and Friends of the Fire Department:
As you know, the Upper Saddle River Fire Department is made up entirely of volunteers. Without any motivation other than to assist our neighbors, the firefighters of our department respond to numerous fire calls, motor vehicle accidents, and emergencies at all hours of the day and night. In addition, we attend countless hours of training and drills. We are here for every member of our community; 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. We leave our families, homes, and jobs and do our part to respond to every emergency our neighbors could face. We don’t work shifts. When the alarm sounds, whether it’s 2 a.m. or in the middle of dinner, we respond. In 2013, we responded to over 350 calls for service.
The fire department hosted Fire Prevention and Emergency Services Night in October where residents were provided with live demonstrations and activities. The department also has participated in community events like USR Day, the Dick Meighan 5k Run, Women’s Biathlon, and more! And let’s not forget Project Santa, which brings so much happiness to the children of our town. The Upper Saddle River Fire Department is here for our community. We are neighbors helping neighbors.
We are proud that our fire department continues to grow and advance in training and in its commitment to better equipment and technology to serve you. This year, we have welcomed four new firefighters, who join the ranks of those who give back to the community on a daily basis. This outstanding group of individuals now needs your support.
Why do we need your support? In addition to operating expenses for insurance, weekly drills, training, and wellness programs for our firefighters, we are responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of the Upper Saddle River Firehouse. Unlike the majority of firehouses/stations in Bergen County, the firehouse in Upper Saddle River is owned and maintained by the USRFD, not the borough, making funds for capital improvements a critical need. Your contribution will make the fire department even better, stronger, and ready to serve. Help us continue our proud tradition of 69 years of service.
