Hackensack NJ, Professional Firefighters Association of New Jersey is accusing the Hackensack City Council of refusing $2.4 MILLION GRANT TO HIRE ADDITIONAL FIREFIGHTERS. On Tuesday November 1st at 7PM Hackensack they are encouraging residents to attend the next city council meeting, to directly ask city leaders why they are not accepting the $2.4 million federal grant to add 12 firefighters to our department. Increasing staffing will make Hackensack a safer community for all. Please attend the city council meeting to support the safety of yourself, your neighbors and your firefighters.

According to the City of Hackensack Mayor John Labrosse on the City of Hackensack website, Hackensack , “is a unique and diverse city in the midst of a total renaissance, Hackensack is home to 45,000 people in the heart of Bergen County, New Jersey.

Our city’s Downtown Redevelopment is bringing thousands of new residents to Main Street and its surrounding areas, and along with them outstanding small businesses, more jobs, greater tax revenue, and new energy. Conveniently situated along major highways, we are also served by two NJ Transit train stations and our downtown bus transfer station provides access to virtually anywhere.”

Mary Sommers commented on Facebook , “Safety first!!! All this new construction without upgrading infrastructure!! At least protect our first responders”

  1. The mayor needs to walk down the street to the Firefighters Memorial park. State of the art communication systems may have saved the lives of the 5 firefighters lost in the July 1. Hackensack Ford Fire. Spend the grant money on new Fire fighters and equipment.
