Emergency Services Night


 On Tuesday-10-October the Emergency Services Companies of Bogota held their Emergency Services night in Parking Lot in front of St. Josephs. This was to allow the public to get a closer look at the equipment use by the Firefighter, Police Officers, and Rescue Workers.  This was also a chance to talk to the Women and Men, mostly Volunteers, on what is it like when they need to answer a call. Also, on display were an Ambulance from Teaneck, and Holy Name Hospital. A number of units from the Bergen County Sheriff's department showed how their equipment work. On was a remote-controlled robot that is used in order to keep human officers out of harm's way. This was operated by the Bergan County Bomb Squad and showed how a car's door can be opened from a safe distant. Another demonstration allowed the children to feel what is like to use a fire hose to put out a fire. There was also a demonstration by the Bergen County K-9 unit which showed how the four footed officers are used to find a missing person, or illegal substances.
   The Bogota Fire Department, and all the other Emergency Service Companies in Bogota are now currently recruiting new members to become volunteers. This is open to anyone Female or Male who are at least 18 years of age, and are residents of Bogota as well as Ridgefield Park, Teaneck, and Hackensack.  Training, and equipment will be provided.
