Posted on September 28, 2015

The Budd Lake Fire Department this weekend helped out a veteran who is a neighbor of one our members. He is a Marine combat vet suffering from PTSD and she is 8 months pregnant. They were living on the streets in Morristown until recently when they spent all the money they have to afford an apartment. After a post on Sunday night by our one member his phone and face book messenger exploded with people wanting to help and donate items. After working with some friends who have experience with this type of thing along with firefighters, assisted in delivering the much needed items to the family. Great Job by Assistant Chief Mike Dorlon with getting it done.    


Firefighters Participated In The Tunnel To Towers Run

Posted on September 28, 2015

Some members of the Budd Lake FD participated in the Stephen Sillers tunnel to towers run. Which retraces the footsteps of Firefighter Sillers. On September 11, 2001, Stephen had just gotten off the late shift at Squad 1, Park Slope, Brooklyn. He was on his way to play golf with his brothers when his scanner told of the first plane hitting the Twin Towers. When he heard the news, Stephen called his wife Sally and asked her to tell his brothers he would catch up with them later, and then returned to Squad 1 to get his gear. Stephen drove his truck to the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel, but it was already closed. So he strapped 60 lbs. of gear to his back, rushed on foot through gridlocked traffic and ran from the Tunnel to the Towers where he gave up his life while saving others.


Let us never forget 9/11!
