“These men have distinguished themselves and earned the respect of their fellow firefighters, as well as the community they serve,” stated John Beard, President, Clifton FMBA Local 21. “It is absolutely critical that we have skilled leadership as we respond to the nearly 12,000 calls that come through our firehouses on a yearly basis. I am hopeful that The City of Clifton will also use these promotions as an opportunity to fill the lower ranks of our Department with men and women that want to serve, and give them the chance to learn from some of the very best.”

Don’t Forget!

Please Shovel Your Nearest Fire Hydrant!

 

Help Us, Help You- Please Shovel Your Nearest Fire Hydrant!

A message about Winter Storm Stella…

From the Clifton Fire Department Office of Emergency Management:

 

If you do not have to be on the road stay home and allow the DPW to clear the roads.

 

If possible please move all vehicles off the road so the plows can remove the snow from curb to curb on the streets.

 

Once the roads are plowed and cleared please do not place any items in the road to save parking spaces. These items create safety hazards and will be removed and discarded.

 

Please assist the Fire Department by clearing any fire hydrants in front of your property. If you are elderly or unable to clear the fire hydrant please mark the location of the fire hydrant as best as possible to assist the fire department in locating it and shoveling it out.

 

Please be vigilant of your neighbors in case they need assistance.

 

In case of an emergency call 911 and the fire and police departments will respond to assist you with your needs.

 

Thank you for your assistance , and as always be safe.

Couple more days to get your Beefsteak Tickets!
