NORTH CALDWELL, NJ - On Sunday afternoon, the North Caldwell Fire Department gathered to locate fire hydrants which had been buried in the recent snow storms. Assisting them in their efforts were members of North Caldwell's Boy Scout Troop (BSA # 1) and West Essex Troop (BSA# 59) along with teenage boys and girls from West Caldwell's Venture Crew 59.
According to North Caldwell Fire Chief John D'Ascensio, a large group of approximately 40 scouts, parents and firefighters, under the guidance of Borough Engineer Frank Zichelli, rode throughout the borough on town vehicles in search of trapped hydrants.
