CLOSTER, N.J. -- The Closter Fire Department has received a $10,000 grant to buy life-saving equipment, including multi-gas detectors, scene lights, firefighting hoods and helmets, and confined space equipment.

Fire Chief Brian Pierro said the donation “Fills a critical void and provides us with equipment that enhances firefighter performance and safety,” and they are extremely grateful for the donation.

The borough recognized donors Trivedi-Capacity Associates, LLC and Fireman’s Fund Insurance Co. at a recent presentation in the firehouse, attended by local officials and representatives of the donors.

The grant is part of a nationwide philanthropic program. The Fireman’s Fund was founded in 1863 and grants awards to fire service organizations for life-saving equipment, firefighter training and community education.
