Every year since five Hackensack (NJ) officers and firefighters were killed battling an auto dealership fire on July 1, 1988, city and area firefighters, families, and friends have gathered at the firefighter’s memorial in Fairmount Park to remember their fallen comrades. Five monuments represent the fallen members. The memorial service also recognizes all deceased members of the Hackensack Fire Department.
