Shortly after midnight on March 5, 2014, Ringwood Fire Departments were dispatched to a Cupsaw Drive home on multiple 911 reports of a structure fire. First arriving Fire Chief 240 from Erskine Lakes Fire Company confirmed a working structure fire with heavy fire showing from the B side of the home and requested a second alarm assignment. All Ringwood Fire apparatus were brought to the scene and mutual aid was brought in from Wanaque, West Milford, and Tuexdo, NY for assistance at the scene and firehouse coverage. The fire was placed under control within approximately 45 minutes of dispatch. Units remained on scene until about 3:15 AM to conduct overhaul and extinguish any remaining hot spots.

Ringwood Fire Departments Respond Mutual Aid To Paterson City

Posted on March 26, 2014
Members of SLFD are currently assisting the City of Paterson Fire Department as acting Engine 6x standing by at their South Side firehouse. Paterson was battling a three alarm structure fire earlier followed by a few additional structure fires in the nearby area which were fed by the high winds.

As we assist the City of Paterson, we also remember the two Boston Firefighters who were tragically killed in the line of duty this afternoon battling a nine-alarm structure fire.
