Boonton Fire Department

I was fortunate to meet a now close friend during a Scouting event almost 20 years ago—6 months later I joined the Department and never looked back. As an active member I have been an Officer, Committees Chairs, and various administrative / fundraising positions. Boonton Fire Department is a central point of the Boonton Community. I have been in well over 1000 Boonton homes and business, with an in depth understanding of the town and community. During my business travels I have provided training and outreach to Fire Departments as far away as India (picture bottom right)
