We just want to take this opportunity with everything going on with the coronavirus to please practice Social Distancing of at least 6 feet apart! It makes a huge difference and together we can help flatten the curve. #socialdistancing #coronavirus
With everything that is going on in the world we always have to make sure to support our own local businesses. If you look at the stories we will be sharing today these are just a few of the many businesses in town that have supported our charities over the years and in these tough times could definitely use ours and the rest of the town’s support as well! #shoplocal #ridgewood

The New Jersey Firefighters Mutual Benevolent Association

The New Jersey State Firefighters Mutual Benevolent Association was first organized and established on December 11, 1897, at the first annual convention held in Jersey City, NJ. At that seemingly uneventful gathering, whereupon only six original member locals: Jersey City, Paterson, Hoboken, Newark, Trenton and Camden, united to incorporate under the banner of the New Jersey State FMBA, birth was given to a new era in the history of the career fire service in New Jersey. In retrospect, it is, at best difficult, to estimate if our founding fathers possessed full awareness of the time enduring significance and the tremendous positive impact this organization was destined to have upon its members, their families and the general public throughout the decades to follow. Given that particularly industrious point of our society’s growth and development, the time was prefect to organize such an association. And organize they did. By 1907, less than a decade from its inception, local membership doubled from six to twelve locals, with total membership increasing to 1,157. Today with 107 Fire, EMS, and Dispatcher locals on its roster, the New Jersey State Firefighters Mutual Benevolent Association proudly maintains an active membership of over 5,000 career personnel.
