The New Milford Fire Department regrets to announce the passing of Former Chief of Department, current Chief Engineer and Active Member Robert F. Heimburg on Friday morning, Sep 28, 2018.  Bob passed away peacefully at Englewood Hospital and Medical Center while under doctor's care for recent illnesses.  Bob's service to the New Milford Fire Department, the community of New Milford and his Country as a sergeant in the US Army during the Korean Conflict left indelible marks which helped make this world a better place.  Bob is survived by his loving wife Eleanor and two children, son Keith (former NMFD and Long Valley Fire Chief) and daughter Karen (former Captain of NMVAC).  Thanks to all who comforted Bob during his recent infirmary.  He will be sorely missed.

MUTUAL AID TO ORADELL FOR A STRUCTURE FIRE

At approximately 6pm this evening NMFD was dispatched to Oradell for a structure fire. The fire was quickly elevated to a 3rd alarm due to heavy fire conditions on the front of the residence as well as throughout the 1st floor, 2nd floor, and attic. Tower 31, Engine 34, and Squad 36 responded and assisted with fire attack, overhaul, utility control, and air cascade operations. Units operated on scene until approximately 9pm when the fire was deemed under control. Due to the quick actions of the OPD and first arriving units one party was removed from the structure and transported to an area hospital. Our thoughts are with the victim and their family in this difficult time.
