FRANKLIN LAKES, N.J.– Franklin Lakes firefighters came out on top this weekend in the fourth annual Rutherford Rescue 5 Extrication Competition.
The Franklin Lakes squad – Capt. Jeremy Donch, Lt. Max Chazen, and firefighters Mike Piccoli, Sebby Rollo, Mike Jost and Joe Fitzmaurice – completed the drill in the fastest time and took first place overall Saturday, edging out the Ho-Ho-Kus Fire Department.
"Very proud of the boys today as they took trophies home," Chief Ryan Dodd said in a Facebook post.
The teams use the necessary tools and equipment to remove two "patients" – in this case, dummies – from a vehicle.
