WYCKOFF, N.J. -- Wykcoff's Protection Engine Company No. 1 won the Township’s 57th Annual Fire Department Inspection Contest that was held recently.
A panel of five independent fire fighting experts conducted the inspection of the fire apparatus and the knowledge of the firefighters.
Volunteer firefighters spent several weeks dismantling, cleaning and repairing the fire pumpers and trucks of the three fire companies that protect the Township. They also spent countless hours honing up on their firefighting knowledge in preparation for the annual inspection.
The Township’s fire department is the only fire department in the state that conducts inspections of the condition of its fire apparatus, and, submits the fire fighting knowledge of its firefighters and officers to the evaluation of outside experts, officials said.
