Every day Americans experience the horrors of fire. Unfortunately, most people do not understand fire. Only when we know the true nature of fire can we prepare ourselves and our families.
Each year an unbelievable 4,500 Americans die and more than 30,000 others are injured in fires. Many of these are casualties and injuries which could be prevented. The United States Fire Administration believes that fire deaths can be reduced by teaching people the basic facts about fire.
Hawthorne currently utilizes the enhanced 911 emergency dialing system for the entire Borough.

The Communications and Cascade Division is a group of dedicated people trained to relieve the 9-1-1 dispatcher of having to handle fire department communications once a call has been dispatched.
In 2005, a group of volunteers, who happened to be amateur radio operators (hams), were invited to help to rejuvenate a decade old function within the Department.
A group of ham radio operators involved in emergency communications began meeting at fire headquarters. It was reasoned that these ham operators were already experienced radio operators…
Handling communications from fire headquarters and manning a mobile communications / cascade vehicle are the primary functions of the group. Unit 57 is equipped to communicate…
It is not necessary that you be a ham radio operator or have any fire fighting experience. We can teach you all you need to know about the radio and cascade systems.
