My Life as a Fireman: Hasbrouck Heights Fire Department Annual Inspection May 21st, 2022

The Hasbrouck Heights Fire Department Annual Inspection May 21st, 2022

For the first time in two years (due to the COVID pandemic), the Hasbrouck Heights Fire Department stood for Inspection for the Borough of Hasbrouck Heights.

All department members worked during the week washing, scrubbing and cleaning every piece of apparatus, cleaning all the tools and organizing all the cabinets to be sure that everything was in place. Then we cleaned the fire house from top to bottom. Every room was cleaned and vacuumed and shown the pride the department has in our firehouse.

The Department Inspection was led by Chief Tim Moots, First Assistant Chief Kevin Todd and Second Assistant Chief Mike Greco. The members stood attention for the flag salute, a special greeting by Chief Moots and speeches by invited dignitaries.

The Department invited the community to join in inspecting all of the department’s equipment and out of town chiefs judged each piece of apparatus, two engines, the ladder truck, the rescue truck and the two ambulances for appearance and equipment check. The rescue truck won that evening.

After the Inspection of the equipment was over, the members of the fire department and their invited guests joined together for an Italian dinner in our large meeting room. It was nice way for everyone to come together after a two-year gap.

Good luck and Godspeed to all members of the Hasbrouck Heights Fire Department in 2022!

    1. Dear Lucy,

      It was the first Inspection in two years, and everyone was happy to ‘show off’ the equipment. That was me in the back smiling. Everything looked great that evening and we had a nice time.

      I hope all is well and you had a good Memorial Day Weekend!

      Sincerely,

      Justin Watrel

    2. Dear Lucy,

      I had an exciting weekend doing yardwork and getting the house back in order after an extremely busy May. Now everything looks really good, and I am ready for seeding and planting.

      Talk to you soon.

      Sincerely,

      Justin Watrel
